    User tags (like on Facebook using the @name)

    Would it be possible to enable the user tagging? Works similiar to how you can tag people on Facebook and you get notified when someone tagged you.

    Advanced @User Tagging Mod: What is it?

    DragonByte Technologies is proud to present [DBTech] Advanced @User Tagging.
    This version introduces several major new features that users have requested, and some others we were unable to fit in v1.0.

    The @user Tagging mod is designed to increase activity on your forum by allowing members to mention each other in posts when talking about them.
    This is done in a very easy way, very similar to how Twitter mentions people. We use @ ; as the tags, so for instance you could say:
    ----
    This new mod from @Dragonbyte Tech; is pretty cool.
    ----
    The “@DragonByte Tech;” Will become a link to the DragonByte Tech users profile, it will also inform DragonByte Tech they had been mentioned, and link to the relevant thread/post via a new area in the profile section, as well as a new tab in the shoutbox.

    It also allows members to “tag” the thread for specific other members by inputting their usernames in the tag box above the posts of the thread.

    This is a great way to increase your forum activity with no extra admin input required – people will start to mention posts/threads to their friends, which will increase the amount of posting. This is especially useful of forums which have an international contingent (so threads posted in during the night for some of your members don't go overlooked) or forums which have a lot of posts/threads each day – again to make sure that a post a person might want to read doesn't get lost in the crowd.

    Hi!
    Sure I can add it, will have to see how it works performance wise but we'll find out soon enough.

    I also have the option that when people who quoted you you get an e-mail and/or a private message with a link to the posting.
    Do you think that would be useful ? I have been using it myself, works ok (as long as you delete the PM's you receive so your inbox doesn't get full .. ).

    Love the first idea. Could you make the second one optional in our setting or something, Wesley? My reasoning is because i get notifications on my phone for emails, and it goes off often enough as it is without TranceFix updates as well.
    May Mix

    @Wesley works like a charm! For you?



    The quoting idea is great as well! I even thought we had that function before as well, no? Not sure tho. These extra things keep coming and dissapearing with new forum updates.. can imagine its annoying

    Anyway thanks for the tagging feature, really love it!

    Only a pity that it doesnt automaticly completes the nickname when typing the first letters. Some members have weird symbols in their nickname so its hard to remember and type their fully correct nickname, without a forum help.. luxe problem tho.
