We all know how long a string of quotes can get with some topics. When viewing it can feel especially redundant when the reply is quoting the preceding comment.

Some forums reduce this issue by partially hiding the quoted portion: You see who's being quoted and the first line of their text. But then the rest is hidden until you click on the drop down arrow.

Just an idea. I realize it may not be practical or even desired by members.
Advantages:
  • would save scrolling through stuff you've already read
  • would look neater

Diadvantages:
  • would require a click to open and see full quotes
  • not sure how quotes-within-quotes would work
