    Asking because a few people asked for it, but im not particularly worried either way.

    basically the premise is you will be able to put @dim or @ag in a post and they will get an alert that you mentioned them. similar to twitter/facebook

    There will be the option to turn the notifications off?

    I'm standing firmly between (don't care-krebs303-yes). I would rather see it than not. So I guess that's a yes a rather limp wristed yes but a yes

    Dave/Dim are you doing this under duress? Have these people made threats against you? Are these people part of a coalition or movement?

    Certainly not opposed, but not something I have ever considered a serious shortcoming in its absence.  A very mild 'yes'.

    sounds ok ...

    but to be honest the time you spend implementing it could be better spent elsewhere ... so I am a no.

    If the person you try to mention has notifications turned off will it tell the person making the mention that. No point someone using the @username if that particular person has the notification turned off.

    I'd be happy to have notifications when I log into the website (top rh corner), but I'd be reluctant to have them come through on tapatalk.

    Or maybe I'm over-estimating my own popularity...

    I could certainly see this as useful, would it be able to handle multiple names for the same user? or would one have to enter the 100% correct username. ie. would @flo and @fleur both be possible to link to the same user? This could be useful as the site is quite small and people are often referred to in shortened form, ae. @jsg - surely this function would not be caps sensitive either? Also if it can handle multiple addresses for users who gets the address in situations where it overlap? @db as of now could refer to either me or Drummer Boy. Overall though I think this has huge advantages, as there is nothing worse than when someone mentions you in a post and perhaps even ask you a question that you never see because you get no notification.

    Clever, could it be made to display by amounts of posts instead of just alphabetical, surely having JSG appear before a bunch of 0-25 post users would make much sense as @Just Some Guy would likely be used daily whereas @Just A 0 Post User would be used a whole lot less.
