Is there a way to quote and reply to multiple people in a single post? When I tried hitting the quote button it quoted that single post but I could not find a way to add others.

Open a new browser window. Go to the post you want to quote, press the quote button, cut the quote (you know how to select the entire thing, right?), go back to original browser window. Paste. Do this all day until your are comfortable with cut, paste, multiple browser windows, etc.

really, you dont even say what you are looking at?
why is this a serious question?

you can afford a used Civic.
I'm looking at a BMW 3 series certified pre owned about 40k with 8k miles on it
Buying that car means that you will not be able to afford other things that you might want.
"Will" is a rather strong assertion to make, methinks...

View all the separate accounts (401k, Roth) as one account when determining your desired asset allocation. You now have 20k and invest 7k per year - if I can add correctly.

Either of the two or three fund approach is OK. A single target date fund is OK, too. The key is to start. But within two or three years, you can probably go to three funds in the Roth and lower your ERs.

If you do that, I hope you trim down the quotes. I hate where there's a big wall of quote and down at the bottom a one-line comment. Or worse, a "+1".

Thanks. Multiple windows worked not sure why I didn’t think of that.

One of the other boards I play on has a multi quote button you could hit on different post and it would add all of them to the response.

If you scroll down below the edit window for a reply, you can see the other posts in the thread, along with quote buttons in their upper right. Click on one of those quote buttons and that post will appear where your cursor is in the edit window.

For example,

Awesome. Thanks

I had noticed the last post under the edit window but didn’t realize I could scroll and see all the post (on mobile).

Hit the "Post Reply" button. The post edit window opens with the rest of the thread appearing below it in reverse time order.

Scroll down to the post you want and hit the "Quote" button. The quote appears at the cursor location.

You can also quote part of post (if there are no quotes within the text selection). For example, in the thread shown below the post edit box, scroll down to livesoft's post and select just this portion of the post:

Then, hit the quote button in that post. The quote appears as shown.
