I am not sure how best to describe my question, but in long threads, sometimes I see replies that look like this:


start
|
+ Response 1
| |
| Sub response 1-1
|
+ Response 2

Whenever I reply to a post, it staircases down like where I have labeled "Sub response 1-1". What controls how a reply like "Response 2" is made?

The controlling mechanism is how your post is originated -

If you click on "quote" down at the bottom of response 1's post - it will become sub response 1-1...

If you click on "reply" at the top of the thread, it becomes response 2. :)

Great question! Great answer! I fumbled around a bit myself with various display formats, but couldn't figure that out as well.
