    This thread reminds me of a German children´s game Ich packe meinen Koffer.

    Of course it works you´re welcome. If you know how it works it´s always easy ... but until one knows it takes some time. Don´t ask how often I tried and failed until I found out how it works.

    And now we can even quote others.

    Hrhr indeed it has something of the game. Not sure if there´s a "I´m packing my bag"-game in English speaking countries though.
    I´ve always been packing my bag with a pen and some paper so I can make a list with the things I´m packing in there.

    It works like this:
    Click the "quote+" button if you plan to quote more people than just one person.
    Next you hit the "quote+" button under the post of the next person you would like to quote.
    Repeat if you want to quote more people.
    At the last person you want to quote click "quote", this opens the reply box with all the quotes it it.
    (Do not click "quote+" or "reply" at the last person to quote, that does not seem to work.)

    Too complicated? Okay.


    Step by step guide:

    Click the quote+ button for this thread.

    Wanted to have fun too!


    For those who don't know, the game works the following:
    Child A Says 'Ich packe meinen Koffer und nehme mit: Einen Stift' (-> I'm packing my bag and take: A pen)
    Child B says the same, repeats what Child A took and adds an own thing. So: ''Ich packe meinen Koffer und nehme mit: einen Stift, eine Uhr' (-> I'm packing my bag and take: A pen, a watch)
    Then Child A says this again, repeats what was taken until that point (watch, pen) and adds something again.
    Then it's Child B's turn again.

    As soon as the first one forgets something or mixes up the order the game is over.

    Yes, it's a hoot!!! The way I do multi-quoting, my last step is different from yours, but I'm not going to mention it and confuse anyone, because your way is just as easy.

    Oh no! Now you confused me.

    You can always open another practice thread "Multiquote for advanced learners - method II" or so or just tell us how you do it here. I´m sure everyone does things different and maybe some people like your method better. You never know.
    And inquiring minds want to know. Please? Seriously such hints kill me.

    I think she just does it the way you described but she doesn't click on 'Quote' at the last post. I think she clicks 'Quote +' there as well and uses the 'Reply'-button in top or at the bottom of every page.

    Yes, that's right. I'll describe it in Finoriel's fashion. A lot of people goof this up by hitting the wrong "reply: button.
