It doesn't actually work on all posts, it sends up a "You do not have permission to edit this post X" message which is good but why is the Depyramid button even lit for all posts, including ones that aren't mine? Just like the edit button I think it should only be available on my posts.

Next, while the feature sounds nice in my experience all it does it take the first poster's name and remove their text and add the last quoted piece of text to it, misquoting them completely and removing all my comments in between quotings. I don't think this is what you wanted and there is no undo button either, once you press it all you can do is hand edit your post or get fed up and delete it if you created it recently.

You should probably disable this option until it works properly.

I am so sorry, that is a part of my extension that I have been working on. I had to push an update earlier to fix a double posting issue and accidentally left it in. I removed it in the most recent update which just went live.

As for it not working very well I need to code a better quote finding algorithm, the current one only works on a single straight quote pyramid like this:
Maybe once I make it more flexible I will enable it for other users.

Ok, just a chrome extension thing. To update do I just shut down and restart chrome or should it pick it up automatically?

It will update by itself in a few hours, or you can force the update by going to the Extensions page (chrome://extensions) checking the developer mode box and clicking update extensions now.

THe three bar menu at the right, then "settings" then "extensions" then enable (check) "developer mode" then update now.
