    Default You can now tag users in threads!

    New feature to the forum guys! You can now "tag" people in threads/posts so they can see when someone's talking about them! It isn't perfect and there are some bugs (nothing major), but it's all tested and ready to go.

    Everyone can now do the following -
    • Mentions - Twitter-style @ "Mentions": Typing @username produces a "Mention" that will alert the user to your post via email, as well as link to their profile.
    • Quote Alerts - Members you quote will be alerted (via email and via your profile)
    • Tags - You can tag users to a thread if you want them to be notified of the thread – you’ll see a ‘tags’ at the top of the thread and you can add user names there. First bug - we don’t know how to delete a tagged user yet!
    Your profile now has three new tabs: Mentions (ie the @username), Tags and Quotes where you can see when you’ve been mentioned, tagged in a thread or quoted.

    The profile includes a direct link to the tag, quote, or mention in the relevant thread. However, if the person viewing your profile doesn’t have the permissions to view the area that the thread is in (e.g. a private area) then they will just see something like this: "bubhub tagged BHCommunity in thread Hidden."

    I'll repeat for crystal clarity - we won't give away what private sections you're mentioned/quoted/tagged in.

    N.B. - There’s an error in the Mentions and Quotes tabs that will put in two lines each time, the second line being something like this
    "bubhub mentioned BHCommunity in post Deleted Posts"

    You can totally ignore the second line, it doesn't link to anything, we're seeing if there's a way to fix it!

    You will get an email that says "so-and-so has tagged/quoted/mentioned you!", but it only contains a link to your profile where the new tabs are, so there'll be an extra step to get to the thread than your normal subscription email which links directly to the thread. We can't change this (as far as I know), so just something to live with unfortunately.

    With the app
    You can mention people with the @ symbol
    The quote feature works if you quote someone in the app
    However, you can’t tag a whole thread for someone

    The thing is, users can’t view their profile in the same way on the app to see quotes or mentions – that can only be done in a web browser. Silly technology, won't let us everything we want all at once.

    So go forth, play with the new toy, but remember we won't be online tonight so if you have any concerns, tough!

    Kidding, we can put out the fires tomorrow.

    Cool! Quote notification!

    We do have to switch it off for half a second though - it appears to be messing with the footer of the site and stuff... Silly technology *shakes fist* co-operate!

    @bubhub do the notifications come up as a pm type note or a 'favourites' notification, like subscribed thread?. I didnt get one. Or maybe I didnt think I did cos I was already subscribed to that thread?
    Hmmm

    I'll ask @BHCommunity to answer that one in the morning - I've got notifications switched off. I think hers came up as a notification like a pm notification appears.

    When ivwent on the full site it came up as a pm type notification. I use the app so its not working for me. I can tag others without being on the full site tho so thats ok.
