Thanks to Keatos' idea, I have brought her suggestion to life in this forum.

 

Because this isn't exactly a "small" update as it brings a whole new feature to the forum, I'm giving it its own thread. Also, I need to show everyone how to enable the "Mentioned Notification" as by default it's disabled for all current existing members.

 

So to use this new feature, simply type someone's name after at @ symbol. There's also the "mention" link under the avatar on the left-side of the page, but I think that looks kind of annoying and will most likely be removing it.

 

In order to enable notifications for being mentioned, you need to go to your Settings page in your profile. Simply follow the screenshots.

Cool. But this doesn't work for people like say with the name, "Spin" considering everyone calls me that rather then my full name.

 

Maybe I'll just change my name to Spin on here.

Oh no, it's still cool! You did it all right up and dandy and stuff. -clapclap-

 

I hope you begin to understand the reason you were born,

Being alone must truly be depressing,
Yes, on that day, at that time,
All the feelings that had dwelled in your memories flowed out of your heart.

 

Kokoro.

Does this mean people aren't gonna use the quote feature as much? Except, of course, when they want to reply specifically to one part of a person's post.

I'll probably still quote people anyways. I just find it easier to reply back with a quote to someone, so that I can have what they said in the postbox without having to scroll back up to check it constantly.

Maybe if it was just a small reply or a post I want specific people to see, then I'd use it. But those moments don't come up too often for me.

What happened to the @mention below the user profile? That's what makes the system work the best.

I thought it looked awkward/out of place, but alright I'll put it back. Perhaps I can add a setting to have it be toggled on and off which would be best.

It doesn't. It's easier especially with the longer more complex user names.

 

Also in the notification settings, I can not edit the notification for this setting anymore. It's marked as receiving the notification but it's geryed out so if I didn't want to get a notification I can't change it.
