Hi everyone, 


First-time post so please be gentle ! [puts on flame suit] - I'm sure there's simple answers but I for the life of me can't work it out.


I've read the posting guide and used the search but have failed to figure out:


1) How to reply to posts in the Bargins & Deals forum - there's no option to "Reply to Post" like I see in other forums and


2) How are people including quotes from previous posts (that are surrounded by a black box).


And while I'm asking questions - is there an App or something else that provides a better user experience in the forums rather than Windows 10/Chrome browser that I'm currently using.




Thanks heaps !

Welcome... No flames, I am afraid.


Some sub-forums require a minimum of participation around before they're unlocked - this is a simple way to prevent spam. This includes Offers/Wanted, Politics and Bargains/Deals.


There's a "QUOTE" button for each topic or reply - but it only appears for topics after a certain number of replies. Too many people would hit "QUOTE" on the first reply, making it a wall of text for no good reason at all.


We don't have a mobile or otherwise desktop app.
