Hello. How do I properly MLA8 cite feedback/comments I received? This was the thread I'm referring to. I am not quite sure where this post should go, so I put it here since this seems like a hodgepodge of question area. Thanks!

Hi Plasma!

That's great that you are citing MHB. I'm not sure if we've ever been asked this before. I hope others might chime in but until then I think a simple auto-cite from this page would probably work.

Hope to see you around. :)

Thanks, I also found this from the MLA Style Center. Unless anyone had other suggestions, I was planning on citing the post like this:

I like Serena. “Restricting Values in Desmos error…” mathhelpboards Precalculus Web forum, 11 March 2018.

I think you're close. How about this:

I like Serena. “Restricting Values in Desmos error (for a complicated parametric point).” Math Help Boards Precalculus forum, 11 March 2018.

It's probably not clear to those unfamiliar with the user that "I Like Serena" is a user name. Can it be offset, somehow? I Like Serena
or [I Like Serena] or UserName: "I Like Serena". Of course, not all user names are actual sentences, so it won't always be confusing. On the other hand, I Like Serena is very quotable. :)
