@+Username feature.


Recommended Posts

Would it be possible to install some form of plug-in that would work like Facebook's "@" system?

Explanation, you type "@" and then the name of another user so they get a notification that they are being mentioned in a thread they might not be aware of.

Thank you for your time.

Interesting idea so long as the plugin is smart enough to not send notifications if the referenced person is already participating in the thread. That would cause double notifications, one for the "Follow this topic" and one for the "@".

Also these notifications should be an on / off option as well as an e-mail / forum notification option in the user's profile. Most of the time I don't care if people are talking about me :)

Sorry "rkm", but I've found many topics in which devs or users names are brought up without the corresponding person being notified. There is no need for irony.

MrSmite, thank you for positive attitude, It's nice to see you can still get constructive criticism around here and not just random rambling.

      Hey all!

      I've been thinking, after I saw this introduction in the spanish part of the forum, this guy who wants to help out in any way he can... Given the fact that he didn't specify if he has any knowledge in developing of any kind the first thing I thought was in the missing gossip.
      But then again, there's nowhere to post that in spanish, if there are users that can't understand/speak english.

      Maybe we could make a "Help us gather missing gossip" kindda post but translated in spanish and pin it on the localized forums.
      You could also do the same with the "Converting EAI to SAI", because I know there are a lot of developers out there that know how to do it but don't speak english at all.

      Just something to think about, if you ask me this would be very efficient and "welcoming" for hispanic people (of course it could/should be done in all the other languages).
      I myself could help out in the spanish and portuguese sections.

      Cheers, XOXO!
