What's up with all these reply buttons? Which one should I use?

There are three different kinds of reply button.

To reply to a specific post, click on the Original Image button. This will give you the option of quoting the post you are responding to by clicking on the button. You can also see what your post will look like by clicking on the button. You also have the option of clicking the button to return to the topic page without making a post. Once you are satisfied with what you have written, you can click the button to add you post to the topic.

To make a reply to the topic in general, click on this Original Image button, which appears at both the top and bottom of the topic page. This gives you the same options as the method above, but the button will only quote the first post from the topic.

The last type of reply button, the Original Image button, toggles a window at the bottom of the page so that it is hidden or shown. This method of posting has no options.
