You can use BB code to post spoilers - if you don't know how, you type [ spoiler]thing you want to spoiler [ /spoiler]. and it appears like this
Spoiler
Just remove the spaces from the brackets.

If you want to quote a post you can click on reply and answer it directly, or if you want to multi quote, click the white box on the right hand side of the post for each post you want to quote and then scroll down and hit the Add Reply button. All the quotes will then appear in the text box and you can add your reply in between before posting to the forum.

I'll keep this in mind. I didn't know how before so I deleted my accidental spoiler on Bonehunters

Hetan I'm lost to board functions, though using message boards for years I still am quite stupid, I must be! How do I post like(as if)the above text in my post as I see others do, with my reply below?

Everyone does this, I'm sure it's simple-As for the Black Co. and S.E., my name would be "Stuped," so I have that going for me, which is nice!

It's a bit hard deciphering your meaning.

You mean with replies within replies? Cut up to better be discussed for example?

You basically just select the bits you want to use and wrap them in quote tags. If you want to see how the BB code looks when you do it, try finding one of the big posts with a lot of quotes in the book areas and do a reply to it. All the BB code with show up and you can see what they are doing.

EDIT: You just meant an ordinary quote? Yes, just click reply on a post you want to reply to and you use it as a quote. It's magic.

Yah, you just hit the "reply" button on the post you want to quote and respond to. If you want to respond to multiple posts, you hit the "multiquote" button for every post you want to respond to, and after having selected all the posts you which to respond to, hit "Add Reply" at the bottom of the screen.
