Simply which button do you press for replying?

Post Reply Or Quickly Reply

December 21st, 2007, 11:29 AM
Quick reply... but if i need to put codes like
i click go advanced so i can preview the text.

Quick reply for most posts, especially here in OVP. If I put more thought into it, I'll start in the Quick Reply box and hit "Go Advanced", where I'll sit there for ages trying to get the post right. XD;

Post reply. Normally, I click the button at the top.

Most of the time I use post reply, but if I'm just typing a short message, I'll use quick.

post reply all the time, i might try using quick though

I've developed a fear of being beaten to the post... expecially in TCTI. That's why I either post a reply or go advanced, just to check that nobody has beaten me, then I click preview once more, and then quickly click. I don't normally get beaten that method.

For other things, I've gotten into the habit of either quoting or post reply because quick reply is down the bottom, and scrolling down the bottom takes LOTS of effort. If I'm creating a thread, it's default is in post a reply, so I can choose for that... and... yeah, that's about all.

Quick Reply. Most of my replies are short anyway, so I'd rather use this than the post reply. I only use the post reply when I'm adding some decorations and whatnot to my text, which of course I don't do anymore.

I always use quick reply. Why wait for another page to load if you can post your reply right here?

This = exactly the same as me. XD;;

Of course, the exception is when I'm quoting people / using multi-quote, which obviously uses the full reply screen. o3o

Quick reply is, as the name suggests, for replying quickly. My general policy with it is that I have more than a couple of paragraphs, I use the full reply screen instead.

Post Reply in my case. Always. I really like to preview my message, finding spelling errors and all that. It doesn't matter if I'm writing just two paragraphs... I'll preview it.

Chances are, after previewing, that I'll not be satisfied with my first reply, and then I'll rephrase myself and make my post better.

For simple posts not requiring codes such as this I just type in the quick reply box. But for posts which I'm showing images for example I go advanced, so I can preview it to make sure none of the codes or anything are broken.

It's a quick reply for me, unless I know it's going to be a big post that requires lots of typing, therefore lots of room.
I also use the big reply thing when I need a certain tag not listed here.

I almost always use quick reply. If I'm typing a longer post than usual, however, I'll type it in Notepad and then I'll paste it in and "Go Advanced" to make sure it formats correctly and to proofread it before I send it.

I use Quick Reply mainly unless I'm quoting or adding additional tags to my post.

Quick reply mostly. I only use "go advanced" if I'm using too much formatting to preview the post. If not, I prefer editting later.

December 22nd, 2007, 12:19 AM
I always go for quick reply, saves alot of time. Only if Im formatting it alot I go to post reply. Like right now, im using quick reply xD

I almost always use quick reply. The only time I don't is when I quote something.

I tend to go advanced, even when typing short responses like this one. In this mode I don't have a bunch of ginormous signatures mingling with what people have said so it's easier to keep track of what's being discussed and pick up on things. Besides, writing in the advanced reply box won't erase itself if I pull a stupid and accidentally make my browser backtrack. Big benefit for me, especially when writing longer posts. xD

Like Alter Ego, I always go with the Advanced mode. It's a habit that I picked up back before I knew what Quick Reply was, and it's a habit that I have maintained to this day, no matter how much I had tried in the past to break it. It is easier to look back through posts, which I tend to do where I hang out here, because there are no large signatures or avatars to distract. Plus, it's much simpler to get the post count, for times when I needed that information.

I am used to using the Quick reply ever since I joined PC. I rarely write posts that are are huge anyway. On a few instances I go advance. The only other time I go into "Post Reply" is when I quote someone. (Which I could do often)

December 22nd, 2007, 8:57 AM
Quick Reply, unless of course I'm quoting someone (which I must say I do too often D8). Even if I make a mistake in, say, my font code, then I can just immediately edit it, right on the spot. :D

December 22nd, 2007, 1:41 PM
Quick Reply, since I'm too lazy to actually Reply XD;

December 22nd, 2007, 3:08 PM
Quick Reply, unless I have a button in mind that isn't on the Quick Reply tool bar, than I click Go Advanced.

Yayz for quick reply!

I use Post reply because the quick reply doesn't have the ability to generate font styles


December 24th, 2007, 12:38 PM
Who cares what font I'm using. I don't want people to look at the font. I want people to look at the content of my post. Quick reply.

December 24th, 2007, 12:42 PM
Quick reply because it has the common codes in it and it is fast which is helpful for threads such as the DCC and Games

Quick Reply for everything unless I have to quote. I'll click the quote button, and copy the text, click back, and quote again if I need more than one. I know there's a multiquote button but I don't get used to it.

Even though I'm a Hawt Pig, I like to do things on the fly. I'm in there and I'm out, leaving both myself and the thread satisfied.
