Example Edit

"What do you think, Bones?"
"I'm a doctor, not a pilot!"


changed to


"What do you think, Bones?"
"I'm a doctor, not a pilot!"

Discussion Edit

Personally, I think we should reformat the quotes. Instead of:

''"What do you think, Bones?"''<br/>''"I'm a doctor, not a pilot!"''

Be:

:''"What do you think, Bones?"''

:''"I'm a doctor, not a pilot!"''

Are you asking for more spaces? It's just plain harder to read, in my opinion. Much easier to just have the <br>. But we have a carriage return after the br - not the way you put it there. (they're currently formatted nicely and not all on one line) — Morder (talk) 03:30, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Just saying I think it's easier to simply put : before each quote. That's how they do it on Wikiquote.- JustPhil 03:34, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Oh, I see what you're talking about now. Eh, don't care for the indentation but it's up to everyone. — Morder (talk) 03:36, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
Actually, one problem, at least to me, with doing your method is the spacing between the lines is larger...it's just enough to notice :) — Morder (talk) 03:51, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
I think I see what you're saying, though that might be a trick of the eye, but I also like the indented quotes. - Archduk3 03:56, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
It's no trick of the eye. It's a 2 pixel difference. — Morder (talk) 04:07, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
See Template:Quote, its talk page and the forum page Forum:Quote style and script. If quotes get changed, the existing templates (with some final decision on exact formatting) should be used. -- Cid Highwind 10:06, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
