    Some other forum sites I've visited have a feature known as MENTIONS, which alerts another forum member they have been - wait for it - mentioned in a post. Usage syntax is @username. Is that a standard BB code? Is it implemented on this site? If so, how do you mention someone who has spaces in their username?

    There is an add-on we can get so that you have the option to get email notifications when someone mentions you.

    I'd like to see email alerts personally. Not everyone clicks on the alert link in the upper right, so for them an email might be a nice option to have.

    It appears to be a pretty simple add-on feature. I will get it installed for those who might want to use it.
