    Just a quick suggestion before I get ready for class:
    Would it be possible to quote select text from or quote whole posts that are in a locked thread for use in another open thread?

    I know that you can highlight text and paste it in your own post, but then you lose the poster and post link (if someone wanted to click for reference). I also know that you could just link the old thread for someone to read the entirety of, but I think being able to quote bits would be a useful (and convenient) feature for citing specific decisions or information from past locked threads for relevant use in newer threads.

      a matter of convienence, though it would be nice. But I think it's safe to just take the address of the thread and post it with the quote too.

      Quotes within locked threads will have to be done manually.
