    I understand exactly what you are talking about that is confusing sometimes especially if the thread is very long. But I’m seeing 2 different things on my side.
    1. Every time I enter this site I’m already in all the time. If I want to quote or like this is what I have:
    Quote Like Share More

    2. If I press More it will say Web View. Then it takes me to the other side just like your picture. But I rarely go there to post or quote. I only go there to log in then check my email and other stuff. Aside from that I don’t go there.

    What I see (regularly) with multiple quotes or post is the name of a posters on the left then at the right side there is a little circle with an arrow pointing up inside the circle. Also no green color only black and white.
    All collapse together with note SEE MORE.. You pressed that little circle and you can see clearly who/what was posted. It’s very easy this way and I do not have problems.

    I’m not sure if everyone is this way.

    That's interesting. I don't see the same things you do.

    What kind of computer are you using. And what web browser? It sounds like you have some options that are not available on my browser.

    More than two quotes I generally ignore the post. And any post that chops up what you said into these one sentence blurbs that have a one sentence reply also get ignored.

    You have to recognize the medium in which you work and edit accordingly. Otherwise it isn't worth the time.

    Not if I take the time to read each one. It says who is posting over each quote.

    With multi tasking and several activities going on most of the time. Plus always on the go. About 99% I use my iPhone X.

    And I'm on a Mac mini or sometimes a PowerBook running Safari as my browser. That explains why we see different things onscreen and why we're presented different options. Thanks for the reply.

    You'd have more success trying to teach monkeys to type than with getting everyone on USMB to do anything the same way.

    Just quote the posts the normal way. Otherwise, you end up attributing quotes to the wrong person or just messing up the whole quotes! That is way more annoying, so don't try to be smart and mess with things! :eusa_naughty:
