Hi there! On the right hand bottom of the posters message, there's a little box that says "quote". Click that, and arrow down, you'll see the posters message and you will be able to type under it... just like I'm doing with yours right now.

I hope that helps, and its not a technical thingy.

But when you use this power, please only use it for good.

Don't quote the post of the person right above you. It's unnecessary and just takes up space. Don't "quote" pictures someone has just posted, say "the third picture" is cute, for example.

The problem with this is that sometimes someone will respond before you can finish your response to the person above you and your response looks out of place. So that's why I'll occasionally will quote the person above me.
