3 questions in one post (Q1, Q2, Q3)

So I'm new so far too crunchy roll, but love it. I started a recent discussion/forum post under chit chat. I am attempting to get to know everyone. So everyone who replied I intend to respond to. If I click reply it simply posts my post in lowest section available. Would the person being responded to receive a notification saying I replied? (<Q1)
Then I tried to quote and yet still puts me on the last page of the forum. Do they receive a notification saying that I quoted them so they can see my response? (<Q2)
Lastly if I respond to everyone within 1 hour that means about 2 pages will be taken up, all of which are made from me posting. So I would have about 25 posts in a row for this one? Can this be considered as spam and will my comments get erased by a moderator? (Q3)

Q1: Unless you quote them they won't know unless they check back.
Q2: Yes.
Q3: Try to limit your amount of posts, try quoting multiple people when possible but also try to avoid pyramids of text so trim the quotes down. To quote multiple people you click the checkbox beside the word quote for each post, then at the bottom of the page click quote selected. To answer your question, I don't think it will be considered spam.

I have a question for you as I am also relatively new: If someone posts in a thread that you created do you receive a notification that someone posted?

Only if they click the "quote" link to respond, just like your answer to Q1 above. For getting notified, starting a new thread is no different than simply posting in someone else's, except you just happen to have the first post in it.
