I don't think you're allowed to edit the quotes.

But absent near-omniscience thereís no way to know when that is. You can only make your best approximate calculation. You can only make your throw and try to puzzle out the results afterward.

The only edits permitted are trimming the front and back of quotes to remove context.

e.g. Someone says "Dolphins should never, ever be fed into a wood chipper".
Quote
Dolphins should never, ever be fed
is okay;
Quote
Dolphins should be fed into a wood chipper
is not.

I think there's an unspoken agreement that you can't trim a quote mid-word, but I'm not sure.

So this would be ok:
I think there's an unspoken agreement that you can't trim

but this would not be:

I think there's an unspoken agreement that I'm not sure.

Right?

It's not unspoken.

See Rule of the Derm Number Two:

2. You must post only one whole excerpt per quote. I don't mind if you have to trim the top or bottom from a post as long as whatever you quote is an unbroken passage. It's too easy to find a long post and edit out every word except "...I...eat...socks...". It's also not funny at all and goes against the purpose of this thread.

Imic's quote is disqualified from legitimacy due to rule 2.

No altering the quoted passage, please.

Not that, you know, I can actually delete it or penalize you anything.

Still, a point must be made.

Nonono, I was saying that the unspoken agreement is to not cut the quote mid-word.

e.g.
I don't think you're allowed to edit
👍
I don't think you're allowed to ed
👎

The latter is technically unbroken because there's no [...] or other changes to the middle of the quote, but it cuts off before the final word is completed.

As usual, a random thing I said on the internet has been copied, pasted, edited, and then used in a fashion that caused a disagreement.

This is fine.
