Reply All with Quote for Private Messages

Post by obfuscated »

Currently appears that there is no way to click a single button to Reply All with Quote in a private message. If you click Reply All there is no quote, if you click Quote it only replies to the sender and does not include the names in the recipient list. Currently I have to click quote, copy the text then go back and hit reply all and paste the text.

To ALL who? The whole memberlist?

You should add recipients manually using the quote button.

If a user sends a message to a number of recipients and I want to reply to all of them with a quote I'd like to have one button to do that. Does that make sense?

I can't remember ever having seen an Reply to all with PM's. And I can't remember ever having seen a list of recipients (in other words, I'm not even sure a Reply to All exists and it seems more logical that it's none of the the recipients business to know to whom a PM was sent.

That's not how it works.. you can send a PM to multiple people and they all see who it was sent to and you can click a "Reply All" button and a message will be created with the sender and the others as the recipients. I want that but for it to quote the msg as well.

OK, thanks for the printscreen. I didn't know/think that existed.

No problem.. I just keep stumbling over wanting this and I see other people who click the quote button and don't realize only the sender is getting the message and not everybody that was on the list.

I have to admit I have never seen that :)
I didn't down-vote since I wanted to be sure first, I was investigating.

I use it alot. :lol:

Handy for discussions that don't require a thread or entire sub forum, or to be public.

I'm not going to vote for this in view of the "privacy" issue. I think the Reply (or Quote) to All can too easily be used without thinking and I would prefer needing to add each recipient seperately.

What I mean is: like in your printscreen, but, no x to delete a recipient, but a + to add the recipient.

I guess I could live with that .. would be nice to have an "add all" button in that case ;-)

To be clear I'm asking for a separate button to Reply All.... something like "Reply All With Quote" or "Quote To All".

Yes, I'm having the same problem for years already. And replying to all with a quote can still make sense if you rather want to remove 1 recipient instead of adding 5 again, and if you want to only quote one specific sentence but phpBB itself cannot foresee which one you mean.

I also see no privacy problem, as everybody has already received the same PM (thus what is quoted is known to all participants anyway).

The problem is probably not my English but you do not want to understand correctly.

That's a matter of opinion. And it all depends on what the first sender wants: but I can imagine a situation in which
a) the sender doesn't really want all recipients to know that there were other recipients, nor who they were, or
b) an unintentional reply to all is an easy "mistake " to make, and with that in mind, (if all recipients are visible), instead of having to remove recipients, having to add them is "safer".

For clarity's sake: it's not a big deal to me at all but it's my nature to try to look at things from all possible angles (and to take other opinions in account).

You can click reply all and then select the text from previous PMs in the discussion in the review at the bottom and click quote. That puts the text in to the message to all of the people you're replying to. No going back and forth with anything.
