Hello All

Just a quick note to let you know a little bit about the new @Mentions feature that has been added to the forum. This feature allows you to mention someone in a post and have that person notified of this mention via their IYNO profile. This is a good way to bring a post or an entire thread to another users attention.

To mention someone in a post simply type the @ symbol followed by the persons username. As you type the forum will assist you by listing usernames that contain what you have written so far. For example to mention AndrewG (yes I know I am talking to myself) I would type @AndrewG



If you have been mentioned in a post a notification will be added to your Profile Menu. Clicking this notification will take you to an information page displaying the post that the mention was posted in, a link to this post and who the mention was posted by.



This feature was added as a result of community feedback. Cheers to @Delta for making it all happen!
For any further information or assistance please feel free to contact me via PM or Yahoo Messenger.

Nice function!

Cheers to @Delta for making it all happen!
This is precisely why I was against it. Just prefixing any name with @ is one of those Twitterisms I find every bit as annoying as hashtags. I hope this is going to be used in a more sensible way after the initial excitement is over. You know, like the @-syntax was used before Twitter, at the beginning of a paragraph to indicate it concerns a certain previous poster, or maybe in a line of its own to invite someone to the discussion.
Please send me a message on the forum before contacting me over IM. For best results, also mention what you want to talk about, I am not much of a smalltalker.

Yes, it should only be used sparingly when wanting to make an important point to someone, that you want to make sure they get.
But for that its very useful.

I think it can be useful, I stop watching threads when I think the conversation turns stale even though it may go on for pages.

So now if someone mentions me I'll know.

P.S.: Gratuitous mention of @Delta

This will be a very useful feature when somebody wants to say give a shout out to someone in the community, and let them know that they are visiting or nearby (i probably might if i ever get a chance to head up to south florida)
thanks for it!

just out of curiosity, does this work in the title of a topic or just in the comments of a topic?

Only works in the main content section not in the title.
