When quoting would it be possible to truncate the original post, especially [ code ] tags in the quoted answer?
With an optional "expand" option to see full post?

Like

"quote"
Code:
# These settings were set by the catalyst build script that automatically
# built this stage.
# Please consult /usr/share/portage/config/make.conf.example for a more
# detailed example.
MAKEOPTS="-j16"
EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS="--jobs 16"
CFLAGS="-march=native -O2 -pipe"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
....

"klick here to expand the full post"



The threads would be easier/faster to scroll i believe, would be awesome.

like the kind of "spoiler" tag in some forum?

i would rather prefer a "you cannot post this fast after last post" immunity to some users with a number of post count trigger :(

tuggbuss,

Do you mean something like the scrolling code box shown in the following post on a forum of another distribution?

https://forum.sabayon.org/viewtopic.php?f=52&t=30193

If you do, I doubt it is possible to do that in the Gentoo forums, as the Gentoo forums use the older phpBB forum software (2.0.11):

rather than the newer phpBB forum software (3.*) used by many other forums:

Yes, something like that.
I understand, there are some limits in that/this version.

I was thinking something like this
