We enabled the quote limit because people found it funny to mess up the boards by embedding about 6000 different quotes in one post. You never need that many in there and all it does is add extra data to your post which in turn doubles the amount of data going in and out of the database, and makes the site run twice as slow... However if you all really think it's necessary to post multiple quotes in a post then I'll change the settings to allow you to include more. Currently you can have up to 20 quotes in each post, and I'm pretty sure that's more than enough...
Well it obviously isn't as I posted one with more than that in it otherwise I would have never known of its existence, I agree there should be one but it needs to be higher.
What were you quoting that required 20 different quotes to be included in your one post? If it was a long quote chain then that's un-necessary, and if you were replying to 20 different people's posts, or quoting 20 different sections of someone's post then perhaps you should re-think how you write your posts. I can only really understand someone needing to use 20+ quotes if they're dissecting someone's post line by line, but how often does that happen? This is probably the first time anyone's had a problem with it. But if the general concensus is that we need more quotes, I'll increase it to 40 or so... If it's abused then it'll go back down to 20 though.
