How do you trim posts?
#1
I feel pretty stupid but I am having one of my memory issues and cannot figure out how to trim posts so I thought I would ask.

Depends on the size of the post and what kind of wood you're dealing with, but generally I like a good bow-saw.  Makes short work of most posts.  

Or were you talking about something else entirely?   Big Grin

Sounds like something I would have 'posted'!

Now what did I do with that darned chainsaw....

Are you using a phone or a computer?  On my phone delete starts slow then goes so fast that it is very hard to control.  I usually select the text to delete and cut it or just use the delete key.

Jokes aside, I think we need you to define what, precisely, you mean by "trim posts."

Oh now I am feeling stupid.  I didn't realize it was as simple as highlighting and deleting.  

I'm using a computer so on my last big post I copied the post replies to the solar info and put in in my wordprocessor, responded to the necessary quotes from replies and then copied and pasted that into the reply.  I was really having one of my brain issues last night LOL.

I love feeling stupid ... it more accurately shows my personality.

Some of the things we're asked to do around here in trimming posts are:

- delete the pics, always!
- if you're replying to the post directly above yours, no need to quote it at all. Use ^^^ this symbol instead.
- if you're only replying to part of a post, take out all the extra stuff, no need to leave the whole post there.

The most common thing I find when someone quotes is not making sure that their reply is outside of the box. It ends up quite confusing because the reply is inside the quoted text.
