Thread: tagging a user

  1. #1

    tagging a user

    is there a way to tag a user in a post so they get a notification someone is talking to or about them? FB has this, i've had a few occasions lately here where it would be useful to alert someone to something important which might get missed in a larger thread.

    shit happens, wear a helmet.

    Uh.... I don't think so, at least not out of the box. A couple options:

    PM the person when they are mentioned (probably not what you are looking for)

    Another option might be setting a google alert, but it looks like they stripped out the ability to limit results to a particular site.

    I do know another forum I use where you actually get a popup message if you are quoted in a post... but it doesn't pop up just at the mention of the username.

    I think what he's saying is more like tagging someone using @username, like you can do in FB, twitter, G+, etc. So that user knows they have a post directed at them, but weren't necessarily quoted.

    i wasn't thinking every time someone was quoted, tho other's might like that.. i was thinking of a way to call a person's attention to a specific post by (for example) putting @NICK if i wanted you to get a notice of something while you might not even be involved in the discussion yet.

    as in i wanted YOU to see this but cutting&pasting and then PM'ing you would get old fast.
