    Here’s a fun little site feature – anytime you include a site member’s profile name following the at symbol ‘@’ in any text box, blog, post, forum, et cetera the member in question will get a notification that they have been mentioned with a link to the posting.

    You can also click a member’s profile and click the Public Message button, enter text and then click the Post Update button, the member in question will get a notification that they have been mentioned with a link to the message, plus it will also show up on the Activity page.

    The Activity page Mentions Tab will filter (i.e. show), all Mentions made of you. Go ahead and try it out!

    First Mentions test showed that you need to use the @member name as shown on their profile, under their Profile name. For instance the correct mentions for Forlath Grey would be @forlath-grey

    Believe this will be a ‘slug’ based on whatever name you initially signed up with . . .
