I would suggest to make a rule about that if you quote you do not quote the images, lately some posts have 2 or 3 or even more images/screenshots and then quoting it and the post becomes long and even if it is quoted again it will be in there 2 or 3 times, this makes the posts VERY long and annoying to read.

Or maybe something that do not quite the [img] tags.

It seems that ppl are using the "Quote"-button more often than the "Add Reply"-button....
Poeple just have to use the reply button... In my opinion there is no need to use the quote button if you are referring to the last or the second last post.....

EDIT: No offense Andy, but this is exactly what I mean

Why quoting the first post? It only makes the thread longer with double information....

Just quote the above post and replace it with snip
Same with images... no point having 3 large images quoted 54 times over

usually text isn't long so i'm really not going to be picky about that but sometimes images can get quite large in quoting (learned that over time, especially lately) so it would be nice if quote didn't quote images by default and if you needed to add them you could.

but its really not anything to alarming to me to tell the truth.
