I'm sure this has been mentioned before, but it would be so convenient to have a "quick reply" box in the forums, instead of having to wait for all of the often unnecessary clutter of the full reply box (complete with a scene clacker thingy and a camera) to load up.
That should be part of a quick and clean forum, in other words: the fair forums as they were.
Jacob, that was the correct answer!! You win 10 points!
I was going to write that it's a great idea, and might help Firefox not crashing when I open the reply page... but then Firefox f***ing crashed on me as I was trying to do it!
