It would be awesome if we could @ProvoAggie or @Aglicious or whoever in the body of a post and it would generate a notification to that user drawing their attention to the post - provided they have their preferences set to receive such notifications.

You mean like this @brownjeans? I got a notification that you tagged me in this message. It even has an autocomplete when you type @ and start typing someones name. You just need to select it from the dropdown and it should add [ mention ] tags around their name.

What? giving it a try... @Aglicious nothing happened. Does this work in chrome or only in tapatalk? I hate tapatalk, don't use it.

As far as I know it only works in the browser. I just did it in Chrome.

@Aglicious, it's not working for me, either.

Try now. It looks like it was only turned on for Mods and Admins. I had no idea and thought it was on for everyone.

@Aglicious smells like feet. @ProvoAggie has crabs.

Totally works! That's awesome.

LOL..... sorry, I was under the same impression....no clue it wasn't that way for everyone. And here I thought that perhaps I was just more clever for using it on occasion.

Cool! Now it's easier for me to ask why @brownjeans has the 'Flatulent' tag instead of me!

It's because you actually have an accomplishment under your name. @brownjeans needs to win something to get his changed...also, I don't remember why brownjeans has that under his name unless he asked for it.

I asked for it as a going-away present when I retired from being a mod :)
