    Amin and Admins,

    Since this forum has exploded as of late I think it would be great if user tagging, or mentioning, was implemented.

    Threads can get lost quite easily nowadays.

    I've seen this function in other forums (car forums actually) and it works quite well.

    Any thoughts?

    Can you explain how this functionality works and what it adds?

    See: [DBTech] Advanced User Tagging v3 (vB4) - vBulletin.org Forum

    Essentially it works like a "mention" on Twitter/Facebook.

    You can tag a user in a post.

    For example, you could have written "@ drewbot can you explain how this functionality works and what it adds?"

    The next time I sign into mu-43, it would be in some notification bar that someone has tagged me in a post. I click on it, read it, and am aware that someone on the forum has included me in their post.

    If I never went back to this thread, then perhaps I would never see your request.

    I'd like to see the "QUOTE" notification. It basically sends a notification if someone had quoted you in a post, similar to the "Thank".

    Drewbot, that's a very good idea, I'd definitely like to see that implemented if it was possible.
