RE:1

Oh, I used to LOVE Settlers. I don't remember if I had Settlers 1, 2 or 3. But I do remember you could play without any other team on the map (=no fighting). I loved to plan out the whole map. After my computer crashed and I got a new one I no longer were able to play the game.

I saw on Steam that they have a Settlers game for sale. But as I researched, and saw YouTube videos of peoples gameplay... I was soo disappointed. The game is nothing like the one I used to play.

Oh... can you tell me how you made @Tonje a clickable link? And tell me what it is for?
Also, how do you make a quote?
I tried it yesterday but nothing happened. That's why I write RE: instead.


EDIT: It seems that the link got made by itself. I just wrote @Tonje and it got automatic change. Strange. Lets try... @1 ............. hmm.......

yes,if you click the quote button without the reply window open,it does nothing.
clicking your name link brings up another window with information. it can be a handy tool for searches. it can tell when you were online last.sometimes players come and go without typing.

Thank you all for helping me out here. You guys are amazing! @kid1293 @Hawk @RedKetchup @1 @brads3



To quote
You reply to message then scroll back and click Insert Quote.
Only works from inside new message.

It seems that I have to use REPLY to to this. When I tried the Quick Reply it didn't work.


Note: When I wrote this post and clicked Preview none of the @Name links were activated.

@kid1293  Thank you for telling me.

I finally understood what @1 meant
Quote
I quess the reason for that function is, that when you login in, you get the message on your profile, @Tonje some have "mention" you, so that you see somebody wrote to you in topics. Thats why i use it.

Again, thank you all!

As did I.  :D

When I click on the Quote button, I don't click on Reply. Just the Quote button. That automatically opens a reply window with the post I clicked the Quote button from already quoted in the reply window, like I did with quoting kid's post here.
Doing it like that will include the quote author, date and time.

How did you go it @Tonje in your reply #18?
Hawk

Yes, I can multitask. I can listen, ignore and forget all at the same time.

@Hawk
I did as @kid1293 said; I clicked Reply-button, scrolled up to his post, clicked the Quote-button (on HIS post). The text then appeared in the Reply window.
The way @RedKetchup explained using a neutral quote (no names) I already knew. Very neat.


If I remember correctly, on vBulletin forums you could use
Code: [Select]
[ quote=name] [ /quote]. Example: [ quote=Hawk]
to quote a specific person. Like:
Quote from: Hawk
How did you go it @Tonje in your reply #18?
Here I manually copied a part of your text and pasted it inside the quote.

You can also quote a person outside WOB. Like:
Quote from: Elvis Presley who's not a member as far as I know
Rock and roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can't help but move to it.
Note: The reason why I can't do it like you... is because I believe I have pop-ups disabled in my browser.

So do I.
I block popups as well as most scripts. I use uBlock Origin and NoScript as well as blocking popups in the base browser settings (I use PaleMoon).

Weird that the way I do it doesn't seem to work for anyone else.  :o

The links work. I got a notice.

I also tried the way you do it (above) and that works for me too.
I didn't know about doing it that way.
