MEMBER TAG/MENTION - Poll for vote

By request, pole thread started.



This may have been brought up in the past, if so, my apologies.
If I am the one that brought it up, you guys already know I'm an idiot, lol.

I feel it would be super easy to draw someone's attention to a thread by just
'tagging or notifying them'. I have seen on other forums (not that I would ever stray from this one) you can mention someone by putting an @ before there screen name.

This is already here, isn't it?

First off,
I'm glad someone chose cookies.

@Admin,
My recommendation would be where the Private Message link is up top under my profile info, just having a notifications link with a drop down for private messages, mentions, etc.
Obviously bolded and maybe a number of new notifications.

For whoever doesn't want it, you can just ignore it.
It would be no different than what you have now other than seeing something bolded and a number at the top.

On a serious note

I have searched my name/sn a few times to see if I was mentioned in a thread I missed. Other than to simplify that, personally I have no use for it.

If it will be something that is easily ignored, like Adam outlined and without any "pop ups." I say go for it, it won't interrupt forum browsing flow and it will make the guys happy that want it.

But I still just want COOKIES!

Edit
also drop the "@" just leave at the "right/proper spelling" of the member screen name. If you’re going to name drop, call out, harass, annoy (friendly banter) or just mention someone for their attention, we don’t need to add an extra character. I would hate to this turn into what the number sign has.

Only thought on that, is you may not want it to 'mention' someone in a conversation.
If you quote someone, I fear it would 'mention' them anyway.
I hate hashtags.

No hashtags#Great idea#I like it#I like cookies#Cookie Monster#Monster Energy#Rally Racing#Honda Racing#RC51

It all comes together in the end.

Thanks for the suggestion everyone. We can definately add a plug in to the forum that will alert you when you're mentioned on the forum. All you would need to do is add an @ to the beginning of the username ex - @admin and it would create a notification for you in your notifications at the top of the page. Unfortunately there is no way to do this without the @ in front of the username.
