Mention by username?
Hey there, is there a way to say, (i hate to say it), but like on facebook when you type a name, the person is notified you "mentioned" them and they can go to the post??

I can see this being useful when there is a thread that someone knows what they are talking about, and someone comes in later and talks about them and needs more input, but the original user that knows his stuff is unaware the thread was "bumped" and never responds...

Just a thought!  [idea]

There is.  Just put the @ in front of their username.  Suggestions pop up, click the one ya want.

All I want from tomorrow is to get it better than today.

Claiming you are offended is essentially saying you are incapable of controlling and managing your emotions, so everyone else should do it for you.

That's why I use the "Like" icon.
Then people usually go back to see what was liked. :)

@G96 

Hmm, couldn't get this feature to work with a user with a one character username?

It appears you need at-least 2 characters to make this feature work? (menu popup)

Does the user "G" have a valid username?

One letter?

@G, we talkin' 'bout ya man!  [black_s] [red_s] [black_s]

Hmm, also noted that I can not mention a user with the @ function on a "edit" of a message...

Maybe this is just me?  ??? :welder:

Then we will edit and repeat @Zuki4x4

Hhmm...that seemed to work from an Android.  I've noticed the script that handles mentions can be both finicky and slow to load.  Not sure why or how to address it.  May require persistence and a big dang hammer.  ;D

Done.  I noticed something.  It may or may not pertain to what you were doing.  But it may help.  The mention wouldn't make suggestions on a new line.  It worked just after other text.  Could be something to that.
