[QUOTE] Tags randomly appearing

thegloamingthegloaming Registered User regular
It seems the forum Gods are punishing us for our excessive use of quote tags. Whenever someone quotes another post, a random "phantom quote tag" appears at the beginning of the quoter's post. Check out my post in this thread for an example:

I noticed it happened to other people who were quoting posts as well. What's going on here?

    I think the problem exists between the keyboard and the chair.

    It's because someone missed a [/quote] tag. There are 7
    tags in that tree but only 6
    tags.

    It happens if you click the "quote" button above where you type your message for the first part, then manually type in the second part, or vice versa. This happens if you do this with any bbCode. Basically, if you hit submit while one of those buttons has a * in it, then it's going to automatically add some bbCode.

    Look at an earlier page of the thread:

    http://www.penny-arcade.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1073837242&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=50

    Same problem, different posters. And the name is changing every time.

    I suppose one person accidentally messed up on the formatting and now everyone who's quoting the original post is getting messed up as well.

    I really don't see a difference there. The only thing that changed on the two that don't work is that the first quote has ownage jones as the last quoted while the 2nd one does not.
    Kaputa has the correct answer, I've had this problem before too and hilarity ensued.

    Yeah, this isn't a big deal. It's just someone who edited a quoted post incorrectly. It usually happens when some one's trying to trim a quote tree. Look, I'll do it in my next post. I'll quote Deswa who quoted you.

    Now, if you were to quote that post, it would change the name, thusly:
