Question re quoting posts

Recommended Posts

Michael,

If one quotes a post using the "Quote" button at the bottom, then the person being quoted gets a notification that he/she has been quoted.

But what if one uses the selection quote feature to quote just an excerpt from a post - does the person being quoted get a notification?

Ellen,

I used the quote selection method above, not the quote button at the bottom.

You should have your answer now.

Ellen,

People being quoted only get notified about it if they decide to be. 

Go to your name on the upper right and click on it --> Click on Account Settings --> Over to the right will be Other Settings --> Underneath click on Notification Settings --> Scroll down to Notification List --> Keep scrolling until Someone quotes a comment or post I made. Then choose whether and/or how you want to be notified.

That's why some people get notified and others don't.

Chuckle.  You didn't address what I was asking about.

Jon did.

Thanks, Jon.  I got a notification.  Cheers for the experimental method.
