How To Tag (Mention) Another Member

Here is a new feature that I absolutely LOVE!

When you need to get the attention of another member in a thread, you can use our mention (tag) function to alert them.

Step 1
In your reply, simply add the at sign (@), immediately followed by their username, with no space.

Name:  tag1.jpg
Views: 31
Size:  28.6 KB

Step 2
Once you have clicked to submit the post, it will highlight the users name.

Step 3
You may see alerts at the top of the forum when someone mentions you, or you can view mentions on your profile.

You will see quotes in this same area.

Step 4
If you prefer not to be alerted to tags and quotes, you can set your preferences by clicking on the user panel and scrolling down to user tagging settings.

There you can adjust your preferences.

Another way you can tag someone is by typing out their exact username, highlighting it with your cursor and then clicking the icon (in advanced mode) that looks like a speaker.
