copy & paste & good if you format it like with quotes or bold or italics.

"oh is that it???"

I tend to do it this way. But each to their own!

isnt it in a different colour sometimes though?

You can customise your own colour and you can customise the colour of the OP. So, at the moment you, firefly, are a lilac colour and I'm olive green. But that's a different thing altogether.

Hi firefly78 - as previous posters have said, there isn't a quote function. Most posters either use italics, quotation marks, bold, or a combination of these.

When you say "isnt it in a different colour sometimes though?", are you referring to MNHQ quoting posts? These come up as blue.

no i wasn't. i was however just being rather dense as they clearly arent in a different colour.
