I've noticed that sometimes it can get a bit confusing as to who is being responded to in some threads, would it be possible to include a "General response" option at the end of each thread?

Ive never been confused past the first reading.

More choices equal more mistakes.

Seriously we even have a spoiler tag option... Fuckin A!

Yeah, the thing is, I could be responding to the thread in general right here, but when I post my response it looks like I'm saying it to ta2zz because ta2zz was the last person who posted. Sometimes, you just wanna throw in your two cents and you're not talking to anyone in particular, but it can give people the wrong idea if it says "Re:Fudgemuffins" and you weren't addressing Fudgemuffins.

It's not absolutely necessary, but it has caused me some confusion in the past.

CS has simply been typing “general response” which seems to work for the most part. I know typing 16 characters is too much work for some.

This has been a general response to anyone reading this (even though I quoted XiaoGui17 and responded to myself) to clarify any confusion this may have caused now or in the future.

Thanks ;\)

General response.

Yeah, I saw someone use that, and I thought it worked well.

Ok, nevermind then.

Perhaps I'm being a little slow (long day), but each item has a "Quote" option and it says "Re: somebody" right at the top of each response, so it's clear who's being responded to ... is that not what you're looking for?

Or are you asking for an option to add to the thread without specifically responding to one person?

Yes you are being a little slow... but you seem to have it figured out at the end. ;\)

Yes, that was it.
