Forum Idea: Highly simplified quick reply

Random idea that just hit me, ever notice how great it is replying to chats and Facebook?

I was thinking that if I made the quick reply smaller, maybe three lines high, and really compressed the space posts take up, it would encourage posting.

Sure, we’ve got the old “quality content” argument coming up, but I think I’m starting not to care that much anymore about that issue. My members have been posting 60 character or greater posts so that shouldn’t be a big deal.

Problem is how to implement this, but I’ll figure out something. It’s probably going to involve shaving off a ton of the excess padding IP.Board is full of, but I think I can get it done.
