You can only quote one post for each of your postson this site, so can users be given the ability to quote multiple posts in a single post? That would be great.

just check the box next to quote when you want to quote multiple people.

Yeah, this should be a feature relatively easy to implement, and it'd be quite useful since I find myself wishing they had something like this multiple times.

You mean like this?

As noted by GayAsianBoy, you just check the box next to "Quote" for each message:



...and then click the "quote selected" link near the bottom right of the page, just above the reply box:

Not only is it possible, but you can actually include quotes and provide notifications from multiple different threads (possibly even closed ones) as I have done here (by following beardfist's instructions in this other thread.) and creating the link string below (note: this isn't actually clickable)

http://www.crunchyroll.com/quoteforumpost?id_list[]=46100033&id_list[]=46100511&id_list[]=43556371

It's a bit of work gathering the permalinks for each post you want to quote with an actual notification, but it can be done. The first one is the thread where the quoted reply will appear.

You can actually remove the entire quoted text and just post your reply, and the users whose posts you included will still get a notification (if they have forum notifications turned on, that is).
