The forums support Facebook/Twitter style @ mentions for users. To use the @ mention, type @ followed by a user name. If it finds a match, it will pop as you are typing. When you create the post, the mention will become a link without the @ in front of it. The user will receive a notification that you mentioned them that links to the post you mentioned them in.

Wow. That is powerful. I think we should only use it within reason. I foresee a whole lot of links with Sal. Not sure she would approve.

Ah..I totally misunderstood the nature of it. This means that you (the poster) can link to your own Twitter/FB/whatever post, NOT someone else's? I misunderstood it to mean you could do it with random people.

I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. Carry on.

Jolene Benoir I said Facebook/Twitter style @ mentioning (it has nothing to do with FB/Twitter other than how it behaves). When you type @ followed by a user name of someone here, it notifies the person that you mentioned them in your post, that's all. You can see on this post I mentioned you, and you would have gotten a notification about it.
