Attributing Quotes Properly In The Hive Threads


The following happened . . .

Please Note: This is in no way a knock on @wfb nor anyone other members in the Hive.

I do note the apology from wfb here...


Now... This how I properly attribute quotes to the correct member. There is an easier way to do it, but I'm quite anal about how I do mine.

Again Please Note: This is in no way a knock on WFB nor anyone else in the Hive.

You can also wrap the original quote with

[quote="source name"]

and close with

[/quote]

This will alllow you to be able to quiote a quote and response. For example:

[quote="oldengoldendecoy, post:1, topic:43164"]
[quote="wfb"]
I highlighted Chalk's quote.  It was attributed to alphadad as I was in his reply at the time.  Sorry.
[/quote]

So let me see.

We have a thread on proper grammar usage in the hive.

We have a very popular thread on what the rules should be as far as what is acceptable discourse in the hive .

Now we have to worry about knowing how to properly attribute quotes.

If it's all the same to all you folks, I'll just carry on as I always have until I'm banned for heresy, misuse of quotes or felonious implementation of grammar.:wink:

How's the view from the trailer?

I'm jealous.

More clearly, we have in The Hive a thread on proper grammar usage. The thread is not restricted to grammar use in The Hive. :wink:

Ever the stickler for precision.

I find much to be admired in that.
