    Hey folks,

     

    The first new feature release to the website since launch and hopefully not the last.

     

    We have implemented a @ Mention system which will allow you to tag specific users in your forum posts in order to better pull their attention.

     

    The result of this tagging will be a Notification in the Notification area in the upper right of the site. All you need to do is prefix the username with a @ and they will receive a notification that they have been mentioned in a post.

     

    For Example: @[member=”Lindsay”] is amazing when she plays her Tengu Swordmaster in Shattered Star.

     

    Now Lindsay should get a notification and come over to take a look at the thread.

     

    Please don’t overuse this or go crazy 🙂 Also – you can’t tag yourself. The tags can also be waved over to bring up the users info card. Also, no tagging the NewsBot :

     

    RPGMP3: Bringing you the awesome-est forum features at a low low price sine 2004.

     

    Cheers

    Hal

    Hehehehe… No self-referential @’s, no tagging the News Bot.

    Well played, good sir!

     If you do it, you might go blind.

    Asked a doctor, and he said we’re both wrong.

     

    The only risk is that the thread might get Stickied.
