martin/Andrew,

I think that an [article] function would really help the forum out. I usually just quote an article, but that reduces the text size. But if I just post it with a link after, posters sometimes think it is my idea, and I feel like I'm stealing someone's idea/work.

Maybe there is a way to "quote" an outside source, but have the text size/coloring be the same size as the stuff I write myself?

I like to quote the relevant section of the article, then link back to the full article, so I'm not "stealing".

How about footnotes and endnotes? How about author credits? How about an entire "works cited" function for each and every post?

jeez louise folks, this is an internet forum about an NBA basketball team. Do we really need to become Knickopedia?
