    Here you can tag members by putting a @ in front of their username. When you do this it'll alert them they were mentioned in a message. For example, @Terry O'Keefe. Type slow after starting with @ and it'll pop up a list of members which you can click on.

    You can also quote multiple messages, it's pretty easy. (If you just want to reply to that one message, click the reply link and it will automatically quote the message you are replying to).

    1. Just click the +Quote link in the lower right of each message.

    2. You can select multiple messages and then when you're ready to post, in the reply or new post box click the "Insert Quotes" button. It'll pop up a window showing you all the quotes - you can select all or a portion of them.

    Bonus tip -- if you like to use your mouse or want to more selectively quote, you can highlight a portion of the text in a message and it'll pop up a small button where you can quote or reply directly to it.

    Thanks for the tip, I wondered why you had used the @ sign in a couple of posts.
