Quoty is the brainchild of Connor Boyack. Connor grew tired of resorting to a long Microsoft Word document for saving all his quotes. Patterned after the taxonomy-based structure of del.icio.us, he created Quoty to allow for tag-based quote organization and lookup.
To use Quoty most efficiently, it's a good idea to understand the basic URL structure so you can easily access or link to your own quotes, tags, and those of other people as well.
http://quoty.connorboyack.com/tag/TAGNAME Look up all quotes tagged with TAGNAME.
http://quoty.connorboyack.com/user/USERNAME/ Look up all quotes by the user 'USERNAME'.
http://quoty.connorboyack.com/user/USERNAME/TAGNAME Look up all quotes by USERNAME tagged with TAGNAME.
You can also use Quoty with this bookmarklet below. Simply drag the link to your toolbar or add it to your favorites. Then when you're on a web page and want to save a quote from that page, simply select the text you want to save, and click the bookmarklet. Quoty will automatically load that URL and quote for you to save.

Quoty also has an Open Search page to allow tags to be searched and retrieved from other sites by parsing the XML output. The URL to access this functionality is: http://quoty.connorboyack.com/opensearch?tag=TAGNAME (replace TAGNAME with the tag you wish to search for)
