I always look up on forums that I messaged on to see if anyone commented and I think it would be much easier if there was a way that like on your profile or something you could see if anyone quoted you and a link to that forum.

I can see how getting notified if something of yours was quoted could be useful, but I only see that working if they add in a "quote post" button somewhere around your username, posts, and rank on the forums. Otherwise how would that work? Surely they couldn't recognize bits you quoted from someone.

I meant something like this;

@GhostOfMatrix Otherwise how would that work?

Oh, so similar to the reply function on YouTube? Where you use @*their name* then it sends them a notification. It'd definitely be easier to tell who replied to you in the forums. I know people don't always check the same threads for replies, so I'd like it.

I reckon it would be handy, mainly if the username then tagged "TheGr8est has quoted you" and linked you to the topic.

Sometimes i'll make a point, and someone will argue against it, but i forget i've even been there, so i don't go back.

If a "watch topic" feature is implemented, and it's fairly likely that it will be in the AG3 forums, this quote feature would be unnecessary. All you have to do is "watch" a topic that you posted in for further posts, and it's much easier on the site's coding and whatnot.

The up side to a "watch topic", is that you will for sure see the conversation, but it will take longer.

On the other hand, a "quote" feature will only work if the person tags you. (i can write [quote]@ernie15 If a "watch topic" feature is implemented/quote] or without the "@ernie15")
and the up side is that you can see the comment right away.

I think that the best idea is that when a person qoutes someone, the site will automatically ask who you are qouting it from.
