trying to reply but hitting post

when you try and reply sometimes you hit post in threads, as i have done, maybe we could remove that from threads because it gets kinda confusing

Or you could just use quick reply. I find that's a lot easier.

When I was a newbie, I actually found this a bit confusing.

Quick reply is what all the cool kids are doing....





Come to think of it, I'm not sure I've ever even hit that reply button. I usually only use quick reply or quote....

quick reply doesn't always work, sometimes you want to put in some kind of formatting, and unless you have memorized all the code, which i sure havent...


i think the confusion is because the buttons say "reply" & "post". well you are "posting" when you reply. maybe if the button said "new thread" instead of "post" , or something like that.

I found it confusing when I was new here too. I got used to it of course, but it would be nice if it was made more clear.

Mmm.. It's been how it is for years, and I've never seen that many people confused about it, or for long if they were. Is this something that really needs to be changed?

maybe take away the post button within a thread so that if you want to post a new thread, you have to do it from the forum screen.

do people really use the post button while reading a thread anyway?

I agree.

When I first started I was confused, but I only made the mistake once or twice. However, it's not very intuitive that a "Post" button within a thread has nothing to do with that thread.

With 'Reply', Quick Reply, and Quote ... does anyone feel that replying to threads is confusing?
