    So I was taking a closer look at the BBCodes Meep offers and found out how the [quote] bbcode works. I also found out how to quote posts in locked threads and include the arrow thingy that leads to the post if you click it. So here are the steps:

    1: Start off with the [quote] format
    [quote="(member), post: (post number), member: (member number)"] (message)[/quote]

    2: Replace "(member)" with the full forum name of the person you want to quote. (Example: Coelho)

    3: Replace "(post number)" with the post id. You can find this by right-clicking either the like or report button, copying the link onto a word document, and it's the number in the link. (In this example, we'll use post 314017)

    4: Replace "(member number)" with the member ID. You find this by doing the same thing, except instead of using the like/report button, you use the forum pic/name. (Apperently Coelho is 1.)

    5: Most important part is the content. Replace "(message)" with whatever the person you are quoting actually said. (In my example, I'll use his response to the EULA thread.)

    So it should look something like this to you:
    [quote="Coelho, post: 314017, member: 1"] Locking this thread as it harbors too much stupidity.[/quote]
    And it will look like this to the audience:
    Thank you for reading.
