Tagging/Mentioning Users


Recommended Posts

For a while, I've wished that I could tag users with the "@" symbol.

For example, if I wanted Kurkistan's opinion on a Cosmere Theory of mine, I could just write "@Kurkistan" (or something equivalent) in the post, and he would get a ping or notification. That's just one example, but I think it would be very useful in many areas of the forums to have that function. Does this function exist, is it available, or has it been discussed before?

My thread-knowledge is more spotty. There was a bit there were it seemed every other new theory post would have me as its first reply saying "<url>this thread</url> might interest you" as I recalled older theory posts, but that relies on me staying very very on the ball with quite a larger volume of stuff than just tracking WoBs, so it's harder both to stay abreast and to find again for linkage.


That post was only 6 months ago, not a year. :P If I had to guess, though, I'd say "soon".

How amusing that you think that I don't already instinctively know when someone posts a new theory worthy of consideration.  B)


It's going to be a thing in a bit when the site updates, is my understanding.

Yes, it will! Hopefully it doesn't suck, but it should give you a notification, which you could set to email you or not.
