Yep! I thought this might be a good idea! Basically, tagging as in you type a users, username in a post, and it is basically quoting. It notifies the user, and they view where they were tagged.

I've noticed that quoting, can take up a rather large amount of space. And sometimes you want to mention someone's comment, but instead of quoting, a tag would suffice depending on the size of quoted/tagged post.

However I do believe that quotes are very helpful in some cases.

I have been mentioned before in threads, but didn't know because I was not quoted. And I think...tagging would be nice. And it's available for Vbulletin I hear.

When you quote somebody, you don't have to put the entire post. You can edit the quote so as to make it smaller.

I can see why this would be helpful, and don't think it's a bad idea. I'll talk it over with the staff.

This doesn't seem like a bad idea at all. I don't think I'd ever use it :P but I'm sure plenty of others would.

This feature has been added. Thanks for the suggestion Bright Nights!

To use it, simply type @usersnamehere and the mentioned user will receive a notification, just like if he or she was quoted in a post, and it will appear in a new profile field, also like quote notifications. If you want to mention multiple users in a post you do not need to use a semicolon or comma to separate them.

I would like to point out that I was just looking through older suggestions (Just now) and came across this thread:

So, Mike, don't thank me for the suggestion, the credit really goes to the creator of the thread which I have posted. :)
Just like to point that out there, and so no one thinks I'm trying to take credit of someone else's idea :)

Awesome suggestion, and this is going to be really helpful to me because I love responding to people but hate quoting so much and making posts so long.
