Quoting articles, other websites and threads related to your post is a major way to make your thread stand out and look professional. Many people have seen sections of posts where a Box contains the quotation of information from other sources that supports the authors post. So lets make this easy.
Brackets [ ] are used to enclose commands used on boards like ATS, brackets are very important.
A Quotation is built like this (without the spaces in between on the commands)
[ quote ]
Body of Text
[ / quote ]
The word "quote" tells the program what the command is about.
The "/" tells the program to 'end' the command, so reading it in order it would say "[ quote ]" Do a quotation box and fill it with everything leading up to the "[ / quote ]" End Quote command. Remember, no spaces in the commands, otherwise the program will not recognise them.

I'm not convinced the brackets are that important

The ones after referrals have typically been "whatismyprimarytask" or "startmissiontwo."
I'm thinking its something similar.
Could the brackets angle, point to a famous quote, perhaps?
