Where everyone's an admin

Make all your html nightmares come to life. Test your widgets and embedded code disasters. Totally destroy the admin options. Do it here, where it doesn't matter how much you screw up.

In this, the information area (right here, between the "Where everyone's an admin" and "Discussion Forum" blue bars), isolate your splatter like this -

=== Start, Your Name, date ===

whatever crap you want here

=== End, Your Name, date ===

Residue more than a few days old will get deleted.

Send message if you haven't been given administrator rights and you want them.

=== leave everything above intact this, do whatever you please below ===

A problem is that you don't know how long the intermediate comments will end up. When you first post a comment it might be the next one in line and a quote of previous seems unnecessary, but days later there are a bunch of comments in-between the original and your reply. Apparently people aren't accustomed to looking at the arrow indicators for the thread. It just seems such a waste of space to keep quoting everything. Imagine how long threads were if everything had to be quoted.
It seems that some readers may get lost in the idea probably because he jumps into the middle of the thread which causes him to take things out of context then reader goes into emotional overload and forgets who said what to whom - not that he new anyway because he jumped in the middle of a discussion.

I worked with a guy who would jump into any conversation after only hearing two sentences. We jokingly came up with a three minute rule before adding to the discussion. He never lasted any more than about a minute.

The arrows could be better - that would help.

Blockquote example
Thanks Jacqueline.
I still think people should look at the arrows on the left of a comment to see how the thread works. It's difficult with long threads though. Sometime the reply is pages after the initial comment.

Where are the instructions for blockquote, how do you do a blockquote?
