    Member tagging in posts

    As I mentioned in another thread...it would be nice to be able to "tag" or "mention" other members in a post...that way they would get an alert to check out that thread/post.

    As I'm sure most know...using "@" followed by the usename...it embeds a link to the users profile and alerts them to the post.

    I like to let others know when I'm talking about them

    Also, I seem to get logged out after a very short time of inactivity, am I missing something?

    Currently the only way I know how to "Tag" or Mention another forum member is by using the reply with quote feature.

    You will then get an instant notification in your inbox.

    I'm not sure our forum has the "tag" feature.
    WatchSteve will let us know.

    If you click the "Remember Me" tab by the login you shouldn't be logged out after only a short period.

    Members on your friends list can see what you post when they go to their user profile. We can always check that to see what's going on. Here's a bit of what I see in my profile right now...

    That feature is available with a modification if members want it added.

    Is this connected with that new line under our avatar?

    Gary...with the "mention" you'll get a notification telling you that you have been mentioned...that way you can go directly to that thread. I just think it'a a good way to let members know that you want them specifically to see what you have posted.
