    One of the interesting features of XenForo is that you can tag users within your posts, similar to the way you can tag people on Facebook. To tag a user, simply use the @ symbol followed by the user name, e.g.
    Code:
    @Jordan
    becomes @Jordan. (You can even select from a list of similar user names.)

    When someone is tagged, they are notified. It's an easy way to direct a comment at a specific person. Not necessary, necessarily, but an interesting feature that hasn't been used much yet.

    @Jordan what kind of notification do we receive when we're tagged? I see that @Sundrop just tagged me (Yes Sunny, you'll get yours!) but I don't see any notification anywhere. (Or is this one of those things that takes about 20 mins or so to update?)

    When you tagged me, it showed up in my alerts, with the likes and quotes

    Okay, I didn't get alerts for either of these, I think I may need to check my 'alert preferences'.

    @FlakeNoir I also haven't gotten an alert... I checked my 'alert preferences', and saw the feature was already checked off...

    I just tried unchecking (and saving) and rechecking (and saving) the box. Lets try it again...

    @FlakeNoir This is pretty cool... Sometimes I direct a question to someone (usually Flake) without quoting them. And you don't even need to know more than the first couple letters of their name cause a suggested name pops up :)

    No alert for me though, so I'm still going to have to read all o the messages to see them, or have another Mod leave me a message if they notice an @FlakeNoir.
