Indenting (sometimes referred to as Tabbing) is the act of adding colons before the message to indicate who is responded to, which significantly eases following the discussion. Editors on PvX are expected to indent, and to sign their comments with ~~~~ after their messages, on the same row.

When you feel an indentation has grown too long, you can reset it with {{ri}} and a clean indent:

(Reset indent) New useful message. ~~~~

Example headlineEdit

Comment #1

Comment #2
Comment #3
Comment #4
Comment #5
Response to Comment #3
Response to Response to Comment #3
Response to Comment #1

Comment #6 (new subject)

How it looks in the edit window:Edit

==Example headline==
Comment #1 
:Comment #2 
::Comment #3 
:::Comment #4 
::::Comment #5 

:::Response to Comment #3 
::::Response to Response to Comment #3 

:Response to Comment #1

Comment #6 (new subject)

Threading Edit

Now, if you want to reply to comment 5. Where do you put it? You don't put it beneath the new response to Comment 1, but directly below Comment 5, so it looks like:

==Example headline==
Comment #1 
:Comment #2 
::Comment #3 
:::Comment #4 
::::Comment #5
:::::Response to comment #5

:::Response to Comment #3 
::::Response to Response to Comment #3 

:Response to Comment #1

Comment #6 (new subject)

If this still leaves anything unclear, just ask on the talk page, or surf around to see indenting in everyday use.
