When part of a larger community in Discord, it can be difficult to keep up a conversation with a particular user since the text channels can get cluttered with thousands of messages.
Fortunately, there is a way you can quote someone to make your messages clearer for your friend. Here are some of the ways you can do that.
Using The Reply Function
The easiest and quickest way to quote someone is to use the built-in Reply function on Discord.
To do that, all you have to do is hover over a message, click on the three dots to expand the menu, and hit reply. After that, write your message and send it.
There are a few more alternative methods we’d like to share with you.
Quoting With Text Formatting Commands
If you believe that the Reply function on Discord is not obvious enough, you could use one of the many formatting commands as a quote.
If you want to quote certain text, try using “>.” Just put the symbol right before the sentence and send it.
If you hit Shift + Enter, you can quote multiple sentences.
e.g. > Hello!
Using Code Block
Code block is another method you can use to quote someone and it may be the best option out there.
To use code block, you must add ““`“. That is the symbol located right under the Escape on your keyboard. This key is usually referred to as tilde (~). However, we’re looking for the symbol that can be utilized while holding Shift.
e.g. “` Hello Rythm! “`
Using A Quote Bot
Your last option would be to add a quote bot to your Discord server.
However, there aren’t a lot of choices for such bots. To use the most popular one, you’ll need to have BetterDiscord installed. Fortunately, we already have a great guide on how to install and use it.
With that installed, you can now add this bot to your server and use the specified commands to quote a different user.
That’s about it!
By utilizing these methods, you’ll definitely be able to have a great conversation with members on Discord.
