Now you can address a member directly, by putting a @ prefix in front of their name, and they will get a notification with a link to the post where they've been summoned.

Like so:

@Melkor
@Minuend
@Cognisant
@The Gopher
@EyeSeeCold
@Adaire


Useful for when you want to get an answer, make sure your post isn't overlooked or just plain being an annoyance. :D


Thread carefully though...there are some dormant beasts you would hate to disturb...like the infamous Kuuthile. :phear:

@Fukyo tries to run but trips and falls....



Cool feature, I could see some use for it, though I could also see a popularity contest stemming from it. I'm not sure how likely that is to happen here though.

Huraah!
I hope they're firm and well aged.

That always helps with the impact and suffocation.

You know, via the huge clouds of ash they create when they hit?

Is that a smily face with a halo or a bald face with its mouth open?

It's clearly an angel, like Melkie himself. A one-winged angel. With a mother-obsession.

Damn, I used space between @ and cheese, it should be @cheese!

@cheese 's and my love is true and unfaulty!

Accidentally, I'm having @cheese on my breakfast steak. And feta @cheese in my salad.
Oh stop it, your expressions of love for @cheese are just downright @cheese y. Whats more, your high intake of diary products, specifically @cheese , are in no way funny, or amusing to @cheese ,and will in fact only seek to annoy her through frequent use of her name.


In fact, I'm going to photograph you as proof of your crimes.

Say @cheese !

:D

Is that a @cheese allenge?! I would accept if it wasn't for the fact that I have physics to do! I have to solve the problem about how fast a @cheese is thrown into the @cheese factory.

Though you should know @cheese is full of calcium which is important to consume when one is drinking a lot of coffee. Like when one are trying to solve a problem about how fast a @cheese is thrown into the @cheese factory.

Now excuse me while I cancel the monthly subscription of @cheese !, take some @cheese (heroin for those you don't know, that's how badass I am). Oh fuck it, I'll make it simple:

@cheese is a food made from milk.

@cheese may also refer to:

Fictional characters

@cheese (Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends)
@cheese the Chao, a character in the "Sonic the Hedgehog" franchise
Big @cheese, the prime minister of Little Tokyo in the anime Samurai Pizza Cats
@cheese Wagstaff, a character on the TV series The Wire
The @cheese, a character in the webcomic It's Walky!

Other uses

@cheese (album), an album by Stromae
@cheese (recreational drug)
@cheese (software), a webcam application
The @cheese, a New Zealand LPFM radio station
@cheese, a novel by Willem Elsschot
@cheese!, a monthly Japanese manga magazine
@cheese, an object used in the game of skittles
"The @cheese", nickname of Jaunt (sculpture) at Calvin College, Michigan
@cheese is a common video game term for strategies that are easy to execute yet hard to counter.

@cheese ! @cheese ! @cheese!

Is that all you can talk about? Is there nothing but @cheese between us now!?

I miss the old days when we'd sit in west @cheese ly, a picnic basket between us, filled with crackers an @cheese , and we'd do nothing but watch the moon slip away, and of course eat copious amounts of @cheese .

BUT NOT ANYMORE.

Now it's all 'Oh fuck you Melly, you take up all the room in the bed, where am I going to put this @cheese !', 'Not now, I'm melting @cheese !@ and 'OH I KNEW I SHOULD HAVE JUST MARRIED THE @cheese !'

@cheese @cheese @cheese !!!!!!!!

Will it never end!? The Doubt, the paranoia, the smell of bree!?

@cheese ! I HATE @cheese !!!

@cheese !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not only will there be monkey smililes, there will be a thread devoted to conversing only with monkey smilies. No words.

"Normal" human behavior? I'm offended by this.

What's next? You'll have feelings also? You'll begin caring about my thoughts?

@Fukyo, I see a "Quotes" tab and a "Thread Tags" tab on the user profile. Have those been implemented yet?

Thread tags add a box containing names of tagged people above threads, which is busy, ugly and unnecessary.

Quotes would give users a notification each time someone quotes them and it's disabled for the time being, while I see which is more practical or desired, mentions or quotes, since both features have the same function essentially; prompting the user the get involved in a discussion. Both of them enabled would be nuisance, I think, and pile up too many notifications. Not that some members aren't intent on making the mentions a nuisance already... :rip:

I would personally be pro-quote notification and anti-mentions.

The quotes because sometimes someone quotes something you said like two years ago in a thread you don't even follow anymore, and it's nice to be informed of that, since you'd likely never realize someone was responding to you otherwise. Also for the rare occasions when someone quotes something you said in one thread in a different thread. Plus maybe you don't want to have to click on all the threads you remember posting in just to see if any of the new responses were directed at you, it's nice to just log in and see what and where.

Mentions however require you personally decide whether or not that person deserves to be summoned. So it's like... "Is this going to bug them? Do I mention them too much already? Is this going to seem attention whore-y? Should I do the mention or just say their name normally here? etc." I don't want to have to deal with all that every time I type someone's name (and I don't plan to). Quote notifications are awesome though for all the reasons listed above.

Personal opinion, others likely feel differently.
