I did a search here and didn't see it mentioned. I don't really know what this forum is ran on but I'm sure it's one of the larger providers, which must have a plugin that allows some sort've mention functionality? I so often reply to a thread, and specifically want to mention and 'alert' someone more than a reply or a quote from them. Some people just never see the thread again, I known I often don't. But if I had some sort've 'alert' that I'd been mentioned, I'd check out the thread again. Likely reply again. I know on here spamming might be a concern - but we already seem to have moderators that are on top of that. I see it fostering community and interaction. Anyway, just my thought on it. I think it would increase user interactivity with the site considerably. But I'm obviously not a coding type at all, so there must be a good reason we don't have some way beyond sending a PM, or quoting and reply (great for the OP, not so much someone who commented once and forgot/moved on). Thoughts/reasons? Thanks!
