    When I first joined PF quotes-in-quotes did appear (upon quoting). At some point that stopped working. Anyone know why?

    Example:

    Yep, it was to stop inexperienced members from posting long strings of quotes when they only needed to quote the last post. We now have the multi quote feature, so if you need to retain the original quote and one after it for context, just quote both posts.

    The only time this doesn't work is if someone is quoting something other than another post. You can always just copy and paste the text into your reply if it's really important to retain.

    Is the multi-quote option something that I should see if I "Go Advanced"?

    No, it's the button next to the "quote" button. You should see it right now. If not, try refreshing your cache.

    PS: You will not see it if your skin is Nexus. Switch to Prime.
