Make large Quotes automatically Spoilers instead and/or closed

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Another one of these "It's up to the web developer" suggestions, but figured it's worth a mention...

 

We all hate it when an OP writes a very detailed or very picture heavy Topic, only to have someone quote the whole damn thing and reply with "what GPU is that?" or some other arbitrary question. Sometimes someone writes a very detailed and long response, and someone quotes the reply and comments "okay but what about blue?". Usually the solution is to delete, or "snip" the irrelevant material to the response one might have to an otherwise long response (or sometimes all of it) but sometimes people are just lazy. Other times, people are on mobile and it can be difficult for them to easily and quickly delete whats in the quote so they leave it there.

 

Two solutions would be

  1. Transform Quotes into spoilers beyond a certain paragraph line limit/photo size (probably not something that could be implimented easily)
  2. Minimize Quotes based on the above criteria (More plausible but still probably back end web development type stuff)

So for example:

Or

Quote

-pretend this is minimized because it doesnt appear I can minimize quotes in the topic creation stage-

and the comment would be "Change the ram cause your pricing is out of date" 

 

Now obviously it's best we encourage snipping and formatting, both for condensing purposes and Clarity such as:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your build is good, however

"Change the ram cause your pricing is out of date *provides new link*" 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But some people will either not bother or have a difficult time doing so on a mobile device (which I myself occasionally use to browse LTT)

 

Also if any of you ironically quote the whole post and write a short response just to be that guy, you will get a slap on the wrist with a ban hammer >:( the mods are watching

Personally I'd like a little bit of a preview, like how a post that's marked as Solved looks, rather than just putting all of it in a spoiler.

Otherwise I could see a lotta value in this because way too many people feel the need to quote an entire book of a thread.

It's difficult to figure out a proper solution but this really is an annoying issue we face daily, people that just hit the "quote" regardless how long it is and creates a considerable visual clutter on the thread.

 

Maybe set a hard limit of lines on quotes without spoilers is a way to go, if you try posting it exceeding the limit either fails with a pop up warning the user or spoilers it automatically?

 

Would be nice seeing an automated fix but I have my doubts on implementation...

 

On this regard, on what concerns moderation, can you report a reply to request the quote to be -sniped-/spoiled?

 

It's easy to come across it:

The automatic spoiler is the first suggestion, so If I was to try and quote my whole OP it would be automatically turned into a spoiler like this:

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Probably. But that's a lot more work for moderators so I personally refrain from it unless its egregious

This would really be amazing though, especially in picture heavy threads (car forum, custom builds, show off your setup, etc...) I'm all for this!

I don't really see issue while on desktop, but for mobile something similar with how signatures work overall. Like it shows 3 first lines and then there's "Show more" option.

Picture heavy posts are usually the biggest issue for Desktop users since on mobile they're compressed in physical size (not resolution)

I see that being issue with thread and users more than how quotes are displayed. That thread could have same ruling with quoting pics than with Show off -thread. With mods having agreed to remove needless quoted pics.
