It would be nice if you could tag a member, kind of like twitter/Instagram. For example, if someone wanted to post something rearing another member, ie. a birthday post, they could tag them and theme we would get a notification. Or when responding to a thread you could tag a member of a previous response. I guess one could argue that tagging may be similar to quoting in that sense. But I still think it would be a neat little feature to have.

I'm seconding that getting a notification for every mention of your name would be cool. But that would probably resource intensive to an already overloaded VT server. If it's even possible.

I wouldn't say that our servers are "overloaded", we just don't like to add unnecessary mods because over time that can lead to them becoming overloaded.

I can see how this would be useful, and it may be possible through a modification that we're already using. I'll check it out tonight.

Have you looked into it yet?
