i don't know if this is already a possibilty and i just haven't figured it out. when i press quote i am automatically taken to a reply box with my quoted post...no matter where i am in the thread, so sometimes i end up at a reply box before i am ready to reply to the thread. i've taken to quoting things and opening it in new tabs so i can just copy and paste when i am ready to post. on another board i frequent we have a reply and a quote button. the quote just selects the post and stores it and you can select a whole bunch of different posts and then go to 'add reply' and all your selected quoted topics are sitting in your add new post text area. and the reply button works exactly how our quote button works now. i dont know if this is possible, im' accustomed to new tabbing my quotes to compile them later but it'd be nice if i didn't have to!
