That might be a good idea.

Quick reply is an option in vBulletin, but I've always thought that it's another non-feature. It's on some forums that I visit, but I must say I've never used it.

It's yet another thing on the "possible but yet to be convinced" list.

There have been a few suggestions:


It's a shame that there's not a 'w**ker' smilie on this site.

Whilst I agree that there are moments when the infamous "chinscratcher" smilie would indeed appear to be in order, I don't think it's particularly suitable for such a genteel and friendly place as RIBnet
