    We are always looking for ways to get you guys to be able to interact with one another in a more seamless fashion and we think this is one way that will definitely help with that. This new plugin we have installed allows you to mention other members by using @MEMBERNAME (have to know their name) or using the newly created [MENTION]MEMBERNAME[/MENTION] bbcode or @OP: (needs the ':' to mention the original topic creator (OP = original post[er]). This notifies the member's you've mentioned that you have done so and shows them a brief excerpt of the text that surrounds it on their Profile.

    Also note that the mention will only show when the post is submitted, not at preview.

    Example: Yo @bob you smell of eggs! Works with spaces and most other characters too: @Mr Softie :p @#Myk2016 If it doesn't work for a member you are trying to mention then find their userid and use the @MEMBERNAME bbcode instead.

    Do this by finding the userid of the member you want to mention by hovering over their name on a post or elsewhere on the forum and look for the NUMBER after [...]/members/NUMBER-MEMBERNAME. (I am [...]/members/1-diablo so my number would be 1)

    Example: Yo @bob you smell of fried cactus! ([USER=201]@bob[/USER])

    And you know how you will be taking part in a discussion and then come back and scroll down to see what was said and perhaps miss someone who quoted you? Well now you will also find a little notification alerting you to this too, again with a small blurb of the response to your quoted text.

    There is a small niggle however, where in order to get rid of the displayed notification, you need to click the link for it. You cannot jump from the Mentions tab to the Quotes tab or vice versa on your Profile and find both have been updated to reflect you have seen them. They need to be actioned via the dropdown itself.

    Hopefully you will find this at least 1% useful.

    Cheers!!

    I hadn't even noticed that :lol:

    There's me thinking people would try and disprove the friendly part of my signature, not the super part :p
