Forum Removing my Quotes from Other Members

Is my English that bad? Why are my post titles constantly being edited by the mods? What is wrong with quoting someone if you are speaking to them?

Your English is just fine. We’ve been editing thread titles for decades in an attempt to be informative, organized, and encourage discussion.

As for the automatic removal of quoted posts, we’ll have to dig into that.

Thank you Mod_Phoenix for your attention to this subject. I feel at home here and when you guys or the AI modifies my posts I worry that I am not contributing to our membership as you would like. This forum has helped me so much over the years. Now I just want to return the favor. No pressure just offer choices.

If you quote the entire post and your reply is directly after the post you are quoting then the quote is removed because the post is right there and it is easier for people scrolling through the thread to read if the quote isn’t there

I’ve never had a thread title left unaltered

My next treat will be called:
Hey @Chris_Colucci - can you help with this please.

I am of course joking. My spelling, punctuation, grammar and over all command of English is genuinely poorer than my Greek friend’s. I’m grateful for the help.

FYI - I am English. But in my defence - most English words are Greek any way. So he has a head start!

I’ve started to capitalize the first letter in every single word on my thread titles and that cut down the editing by like 90%

I try - but even as a native my written language skills are poor…

It’s kind of odd, but the expectation is your thread title uses ‘title case’.

Fixed that for you.

Yep, that’s just house style and the majority of edits.

Beyond that, it’s just clarifying titles relative to the thread content or tweaking them to be more specific. I can’t count how many different/identical “Bloodwork Results” threads are in T Replacement, “Program Help?” threads in BSL or Beginners, “Cycle Plan” in Pharma, and “Diet Question” threads in Supps/Nutrition.
