[How-to] Reply to a Post

To get started replying to posts, please check our guide on how to write good posts. Good posts are far more likely to start conversations and get answers!

  • To reply to a specific person, use on their post.
  • To reply with a new topic, use to the right of the post. Both old and new topics will be automatically linked together.

Your reply can be formatted using simple HTML, BBCode, or Markdown:

This is **bold**.
This is <b>bold</b>.
This is [b]bold[/b].

To insert a quote, select the text you wish to quote, then press any Reply button. Repeat for multiple quotes.

To notify someone about your reply, mention their name. Type @ to begin selecting a username.

To use standard Emoji, just type : to match by name, or use the traditional smileys ;)
