Tagging users

Just an idea, not sure if its possible or not but i think it would be a good idea to be able to tag people in posts.
Eg, someone wants to know how to turbo an engine, you could tag someone you know that has done it so they get a notification about it so they can respond and let them know about it
Ideas?

Re: Tagging users

people will hate the notifications part but then it could be turned off like the likes and dislikes

Re: Tagging users

wouldn't it be easier to link them to a thread/guide/FAQ?

yeah i would to but i imagine its not everyones cup of tea, also it could be abused with everyone tagging someones name for fun but that can also be worked around

Re: Tagging users

Yeah well it was just a thought really, was writing a reply and thought of someone who would be able to give a good answer to a question and instead of them not seeing it, it would be good to just say "well "user123" would know about this" if you get what i mean

Yeah but if its not covered in a thread/guide/faq or if its just something you know someone else would be interested in you could tag them so they see the thread

Re: Tagging users

I agree with custard, if the search function fails OP.. usually someone will post a link to a relevant thread?

If someone is looking for an answer, if they dont search.. they'll post anyway? I think it would make people rely less on the search function than they already do More work for others..

Re: Tagging users

It's possible - but a little quirky, you'd do it by typing the username in the format @USERNAME; - it would then work like the Thanks/Likes alert - but you could turn that off.

If enough people want it, I'll get it ... otherwise ...

Re: Tagging users

It would be more likely to become popular if it would work without needing the ";" after the names. I'll have a look to see if that is possible
Thanks JustAndy thanked for this post

Re: Tagging users

Any more thought on this Ben? (see this is a good example of where i could have tagged ben, so he would know straight away that i was talking about him)
could you also have the option of not being tagged for members that dont want it?

Re: Tagging users

I like the idea too, I know as custard says that you can just link guides and FAQ's but if the info is in a thread which is obscure but you know someone will know the answer this will work well.

Re: Tagging users

I reckon the people who are getting tagged a lot (I'm thinking Andy Monty for one!) will end up getting spammed with notifications. IF they choose to turn them off, then people posting are going to tag them, then end up wondering why those tagged people arn't responding... 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...
