[ 🤏 Mini-guide ] - Pingless quotes

If you want to “quote” a user, but you don’t want them to be quote-pinged or link-pinged, do the following:

  1. Create a quote like this:
[quote="twofoursixeight, post:26, topic:4111, full:true"]
I think giving massive amounts of likes def appreciated (just got higher love today)
[/quote]
  1. Change [quote="user, post:x, topic:x, full:true"] to [quote]or else it will link ping them.
[quote]
I think giving massive amounts of likes def appreciated (just got higher love today)
[/quote]
  1. You successfully created a quote, and the user won’t be pinged.
