As it stands, there seems to be a general consensus that there should be a quote purge. Unless someone objects to this and provides reason not to, this will occur tonight or sometime tomorrow. Also as it stands, for the time being, the quotes feature will remain, and it will be open to all quotes except for those mentioned. Please continue to discuss this so that I can get a better idea of what should be done and possibly think of alternative solutions. The poll can only help so much.

That reminds me, I never finished this game. I should go do that.

Should it stay? - YES. I love the quotes. There's some pretty funny ones and they quite often make me smile.

Limited to gaming? - Heck no. I don't think that is needed.

Purge existing quotes? - Yes. A change would be nice. Some of them come up quite often and I do tire of seeing the old ones. In fact a regular purge (say, every 3 months) would be great.

One more suggestion: limit the number of quotes each member can add in a certain period of time?

Can there at least be an option to turn off quotes so they aren't visible by the user? I'd much rather the "Recent Threads" be displayed in the upper-right corner than quotes.

That is a good idea. If there was a way for each individual user to customize what is shown for them in the sidebar...?

When hovering over the title bar for the quotes thing, press the "x" to the right to minimize it. Not a perfect solution, but better than nothing.

Thanks Decho! ^_^ Personally, I love the quotes feature and plan on keeping it up, but that's a great way to please everybody.

I like the Quote Feature. It's fun! Also, I do think there should a "Quote Purge" every once in awhile so that it doesn't get too bogged down with too many quotes, and some may lose their funniness or whatever.

It also shouldn't be limited to just gaming, as there are many hilarious and fun movie quotes out there! ^_^

:)

Could we have a list of what is permitted in the quotes section? Like are we just doing forum related quotes or video games only or...?

I believe the general consensus is that any quote is allowed other than then following:
-Political quotes
-Religious quotes
-Lifestyle quotes

Anything else should be fair game.

Okay I don't want to look at the quotes anymore, they are now annoying. Thing is I can't minimize it on my iPad. Is there a way that an admin can do this for a member or must I suffer?

I'm going to agree that the skeleton one is annoying. Takes up a lot of room.

Actually I did repost it. It just didn't specify where so I posted it to MS Word.

Yeah minimizing the quotes is still "meh" since I can still see the "QUOTES" bar which get in the way of more important things like Recent Topics and Status Updates. If you can't make the Quotes completely toggle-able on and off for a user, how about simply moving it to below the Status Updates?
