Is that manually on per post basis? I wouldn't want anyone getting an alert.
It's a real problem on our existing platform where we have disable quoting unless user does it manually with BBcode. IMO a reply link/button should be just that & not insert a quote.
We are an image heavy forum & ended up with images & loads of text repeating within a thread. Makes following a thread a PITA especially when the quoted post was massive & the reply was just a few words.
