Mentions - Beta

quote [ <USER>username goes here.</USER>
The username is case sensitive! ]

Okay, I'm bringing the mentions for comments online. What does this mean? It means that if you put something like <USER>steele</USER> in your comment it will show up in your comment as a link to my profile page and I will get a notification that you mentioned me in a comment. this works with all usernames. Usernames are case sensitive so keep that in mind. It's beta right now so if you have questions or issues put them in this thread. Yes, eventually it'll be an automated thing where you can search for usernames as you type but that'll be in the V2 code. For now I just want to get things working properly on the backend.

Well, sanepride, imagine if you and I were having a conversation about a topic that we knew mechavolt was a specialist or incredibly interested in and we wanted to include him in our conversation. We could simply mention him in our conversation by putting <USER>mechavolt<USER> in one of our comments and mechavolt would receive a notification telling him that we had mentioned him and give him a link to the comment,

Pick an old, obscure post, comment on it using USER tags to invite your friends, and repurpose that post as a place to have a new, entirely unrelated conversation. It's like the really, really boring internet version of an illegal warehouse rave.

(quote marks seem to cause problems in the titles of posts when you go back and edit them)

Ankylosaur Ankylosaur putting a name in USER tags and then putting that in more USER tags doesn't send a mention notice. I have no idea why anyone would do that, but clearly this is an important bug that needs all of steele's attention.
