And if they don't turn them off, they're going to possibly feel obliged to reply to all of the posts they've been tagged in.

If you think a thread is needing input from a certain person, why not just message them?

Maybe a button to send the thread link as a message to a member might be better, although I think it'd have the same effect as above...
Thats a good point actually, but we all know Andy Monty loves the attention

Unless there is a way to stop the users being able to be tagged, if you turn off the notifications then you cant be tagged in the thread if you know what i mean, so if you cant tag someone, then they dont want to be tagged.

I think I made sense..

Re: Tagging users

Just for you @JustAndy - it is done. Just do an @ sign, then the username (no semicolon required)

You can turn off tagging and stuff in the usercp.

Also threads now support hashtags (hashtags require semicolon at the end)... #newfeature

Oh - and will alert you if someone quotes you in a post (again, you can turn it all off in the userCP)
Thanks neeny09 thanked for this post

Well he was the first person I thought of as an example

I know what you mean, but then I think some newbie users (and anyone not bothering to read info about this kind of stuff) will be very confused at why they can't tag those people who have turned it off - you'd need some sort of pop-up or something to explain why the tag isn't working/unable to use etc. You'll then end up with posts about 'Err wtf my tagging isn't working HALP!!!!'

Just sounds a bit too much hassle imo...

Re: Tagging users



Usernames don't need a semicolon after them, just the @ is fine.

For some reason, hashtags do ..

Ahh now that makes sense then. I think this should work well, just hope the members read this so they know what is going on when they see more options in the quick links

Re: Tagging users

I'll do a proper write up of it tomorrow.

I'm in bed now with insomnia - but thought I might as well do something a bit useful.

5:41am ... *sigh* #cantsleep

The quote notification feature may annoy some people though.

Re: Tagging users

on twitter if you use a hashtag then that tweet can be read by anyone in the world, you get trending hashtags usually tv shows and things where everyone can talk about it.

on the forum when you click on the hashtag it will show you all the posts that people have used that hashtag.

so if i put #geek

then there should now be two posts shown when you click that link

Re: Tagging users

So it could help with things like events if someone is talking about say Stanford in the punto section but hash tags it then everyone can quickly view whats being said about an event without trailing through the forum i like
