    Default New Feature - User Tagging


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Installed a new cool feature. Idea is that you can tag someone like in Twitter by just putting the AT - @ symbol in front of their user name and they will get an email that someone mentioned them in a post. Email will go to whatever address they have registered on file.

    For example if I was saying that Ethan aka @Riverside Reptiles and @Hilde should comment on this thread, they would get an email from the forum informing them of a tag.

    Lets hope this works as it should

    @Marty, just FYI...seems to work. I got both an email and a notification in my GU stuff.
    Should be a handy feature! Thanks!

    To ALL GU members, please take the time to look through old threads and/or use the search feature BEFORE asking questions. GU is a huge archive of information and most of the info that you're looking for is already there just waiting for you to find it.

    I got it too, didn't get it when I tagged myself in a post. Best is that you can pull anyone into the conversation. Hope Edgar from @Chameleons Canada likes this feature

    Marty ~

    How do "hash tags" work?

    Noticed that my first #43 was automatically tagged. When I click on it, it does not go anywhere, at least not to the post I meant.

    I honestly don't like this feature. It just creates spam in our e-mail inboxes. If we are to draw someone's attention, dropping a pm works well enough.
