Does anyone think this would be useful?

I think it would be worth a go and I can see it being used.

rofl Never thought of that.. But thanks for the idea :wink:

I was thinking more in the lines of someone having posted something helpful... a Solution or something like that. It would be a help if that person could get a message and then have the chance to read the post and hopefully give some instructions etc.

Ie. Answer: I believe that Rotter had a solution to (whatever)
Rotter will get a message that he's been tagged and can than comment on the post.

Will this produce a tag/notification every time a user's name is mentioned?
eg. Thanks for that P/o Prune, I'll test it out in my game.
Will P/o Prune get notified that he has been tagged in this post?

Also what about if you shorten their user name?
eg. Hey Cam what if I did this, will it break anything?
Will Campbell be notified or will all members whose name starts with Cam be notified or will they be ignored?

I did note that there is an opt out/in ability. I think I would have mine set to OFF permanently as I don't need another system notifying me about something that I will see anyway.

Can't imagine I will ever have a solution to something! :lol:

I think this is a good idea and would be useful. It is okay when the forum is quiet, we are not likely to miss anything. But, when it gets busy again it would be good to know if someone has mentioned you.
