Mentioning in forums

Post by [email protected]$$ »

Most of you guys are on discord. There is a "@player" feature which rings a notification on the player that is being mentioned, gets his attention and brings him to the chat. Why not add it to forums? In a topic if I mention say @MicroChip or even @admin_team or @members those people can be called. Make it like this if I want to mention someone in the post say MicroChip. So I can type @MicroChip and whenever micro visits forums next time he can get a notification on top of the webpage (along with user control panel, pm inbox, etc) saying you have been mentioned in this post by player Dumbass. It can be useful getting quicker replies and also can help getting the attention of a player didn't visit that topic yet. Something like a notification that u receive in Facebook that "Dumbass mentioned you in a comment". Let's make our Forums more user friendly.

If you scroll down a little bit, there is a feature called “Notify me when a reply is posted”! Now I never tried this but if this is still working! I don’t see a point in this topic.

{Trying out the feature}

You can link like this

Code: Select all

[url=Link]Text[/url]
So for instance

Code: Select all

[url=www.neondragon.net]Neondragon front page[/url]
Would look like this:

Neondragon front page

Mentioning/@‘ing you have no reason to dig into for now as it’s not (yet?) implemented which is what this topic is trying to change.

Shadi and Ta Ka, I believe you misunderstood Dumbass's idea.

So the idea is that :
There should be a tag with which you could not just link to someone's profile but also pop up a notification on that person's forum account which would say something like 'Your name was referred in MicroChip's post. Click here to view' . So it's like tagging someone on your Facebook status, the other person gets a notification about the tag.

Benefits :
- It would be easier to inform other people about stuff and to bring it to their notice.
- Would be convenient if the post made by you was addressed to someone or some group like: I want a new feature to be added for the @VIP team.....
- Personally, I would opt for this feature so I would come to know if anyone wrote anything about me anywhere on the forums (highly unlikely event tho).

Such thing already exists in Ambrosia community, and it works like a charm and is very handy. It immediately links the mentioned user to the post mentioned in without any digging.

I agree with inventing this here.

Did you even read my post? Read the bottom of it, the top bit was to help baby out.

So it’s like a notification bell letting you know who replied in the topic?
