Add-on Multi-Quote, just like the one from vBulletin

#1
I'm looking for someone who can code an add-on for xenForo that add the multi-quote function which is working just like the one from vBulletin, with some added features:

- Multi-Quote button in each post that won't bring the screen to quick reply box.
- Page switching possible (remember which posts have been selected)
- Thread dependance (member can select posts to quote in multiple thread, that only add to the reply box in that particular thread)
- Selected posts stay saved for customizable time, preferable in cookie.
- Maybe some more small features, I'll add later.

Please send me your quote via PM. This is the first request from me, I'm switching a large board to xenForo so if you are competent and interested, I will have a lot of jobs for you in the next 2-3 months.

Would these go away after a successful post to the thread in question ?
or else if you reply to the thread again (within the time frame) wouldn't the selected posts quote again ?

- Thread dependance (member can select posts to quote in multiple thread, that only add to the reply box in that particular thread)
Why is this needed ?
For this example: I go to thread 1 and multi-quote 2 posts but I don't Reply to the thread, and then go to thread 2 and multi-quote two posts and then reply to thread 2. You want the only Thread 2 multi-quotes to show up in thread 2 ... and the ability to go back to thread 1 and Reply to that thread, with the multi-quotes still waiting for you there ?
Seems like alot of work. What about when you click multiquote in thread X, the multiquotes in all other threads but thread X are erased ?

Yes, those will need to go away.

It's needed for convenience reason. And yes, you understand it right.

From my limited experience. I don't think it need much work to make this happen. But I might be wrong.

However, I'm up for any suggestion, anything that helps make this happen easier is fine.

I need this as well. I don't have any major requirements, just an easy way for a person to reply to multiple posts/quotes in one message without having to copy and past each individual quote separately.

A way to use the mouse to select the text to quote then a pop-up box would allow you to tick a box. This could be done for just a single page but even better would be the ability to do this on multiple pages in the thread.
