Honestly speaking, many users want a QR added to the core. Truth is we don't need it.
The only people who want it, are the ones who want the "spammy" replies in topics. The "thanks", "lol", "+1", "cool" replies.
This is incorrect.
We have one of the most civilized boards on the internet, yet many of our users use Primehalo's quick reply.
Why? Because it's one click easier. This is very common phenomenon on all discussion boards: if you can do something even slightly faster or easier, that's what you want. And there is nothing wrong with that.
I am sure what you said is true on many boards. I have seen boards like this, but obviously I don't visit them much. For this same reason the whole friend/foe function is almost unfathomable to me - but only almost, since I know there are boards where it comes handy, even if it would be insane to use that (we have the whole thing disabled, it just doesn't exist) on our board.
Blanket statements often (note: not always
) require careful consideration.
