Have you found a thread that you think would be interesting to a particular other member?
Asked somebody a question and you don't think they'll revisit a thread?
Want to call someone's attention to a thread for some other reason?

We've go you covered. Try using the new user tagging feature. You can either tag users at the top of a thread, using the tag users button, or use the @ convention:

[MENTION=6473]joe7987[/MENTION] Any advice?

If the user is accepting emails from CC, they'll be sent an e-mail with a link to the thread they were tagged in.

Just remember not to abuse this feature. If you're speaking to someone in a thread they frequent, you probably don't need to tag them. Also, do not tag people repeatedly.

Hopefully the spambots don't figure this out, they'd have a field day with this.

But... IF I tag you three times, do you get three emails?
[MENTION=6473]joe7987[/MENTION] [MENTION=6473]joe7987[/MENTION] [MENTION=6473]joe7987[/MENTION] :lol:

Can I tag myself? [MENTION=37536]XpL0d3r[/MENTION]
EDIT: yup.

Awesome feature though!! This will certainly be useful. :thumbs up

Perhaps the tag option should only be allowed usable to those with a few posts in order to avoid abuse by the spammers.

BANNED!

:lol: Nah. Only sends me one e-mail.


HeX - I agree. At the moment, I don't know if there's a way we can set this up (I don't see an option in the mod or admin control panel), but I'll look deeper into it.

Truth. Also, if you have gmail, it seems that it puts all of the tagged e-mails into one e-mail thread, so it doesn't spam your inbox.

That should give you a tag email.

"Dear Wreckless Hype,

joe7987 has mentioned you!"

And yea, I do see the other one now.

Why is quoting now sending me emails? That's going to get old. Heh.

You can turn quote emails off in your notification settings I believe.

Will you quote this post just like you did a second ago, with this one not having a tag in it. I think it sent me a different notification, but I responded too fast

It's a quote email. We were just discussing this...
