    This should post in my OnePost thread

    Holy fuck, they broke my usual cross-thread posting mechanism.

    Process:

    1. Quote reply on the thread you're trying to quote from
    2. Navigate to the thread you want to reply on
    3. Finish adding snarky commentary and hit "reply"

    Expected: A popup asking which thread to reply on
    Also acceptable: Just replying where my browser is pointing now
    Actual: Replying on the original thread

    empty


    Yep, it broke.

    It used to ask me where I wanted to reply.

    I did notice it shows a link above the edit box saying where you are going to reply.

    This is my process.

    1. Hit reply
    2. Hit quote button.
    3. Cut text from edit box.
    4. Cancel post.
    5. Navigate to different thread.
    6. Hit reply at the bottom of the thread.
    7. Past text into edit box.
    8. Hit post.
