NEW FEATURE: Branch Cite


A new feature has arrived on Hack Forums, Branch Cite. The idea is to branch the post you cite off to a new thread in the same or new subforum of your choosing. When you begin the branch cite, you'll be given a few subforum suggestions. To better understand the purpose of this feature, think of it like a crosspost on Reddit which allows you to copy a post into a different subreddit or Twitter's threads where you can start a new thread of tweets from within the original tweet.
