We’ve had some issues here and there with user replies not being correctly parsed by the system. Most of the times when there are issues like posts being too short or reply addresses being incorrectly formatted, the system will e-mail you back and explain what was wrong.
There are other cases though, that have a seemingly legitimate format, but will end up in unwanted/unintended posts on the forum.
Bottom-posting, top-posting and inline replies are all valid ways of replying to e-mails and all have advantages and disadvantages based on the context of the e-mail sent. But for the sake of replying to posts on this forum, we would like to request to only use top-posting.
What does this mean concretely?
The following example is what most e-mail clients will use by default when replying and will be able to be parsed correctly.
YOUR REPLY On 1/1/2020 00:11 AM, John Doe wrote: > ORIGINAL POST
Other functional examples include:
YOUR REPLY -- ORIGINAL POST
YOUR REPLY == ORIGINAL POST
Or you could always just send an e-mail with only your reply in it.
