    Introducing the new tagging system

    If you want to address a post to a specific user, all you have to do is type an @ symbol, followed by their name. The tagged user will see a notification that they have been mentioned.

    Ah yes, it appears to work as it should. Now to see how long before it is being abused to annoy someone.. @Supermasterpig He hasn't been on here in forever but I wonder if it will send him an email. If not I'll just have to annoy him other ways!

    I wonder if I just sent a notification to piggy by making a quote of your post? Maybe @JoostinOnline can fix that so no mention tags in a quoted post?

    Actually, I disabled the email notifications. I could only enable/disable it globally, and I figured most people wouldn't want emails every time they are mentioned. The user-specific option is only available in the paid version, and HacksDen is being supported almost entirely out of pocket as it is. If you would like to donate $80, I'd be happy to add the pro version.

    It shouldn't. Quote cornflake's first post so I can see if I get a notification about it.
