    I'm playing with a new feature today, it's called Advanced User Tagging, and you can just do something like put the "@" sybmol in front of someone's name, like TrailLeadr and then you can tag them in a post and they will be notified that they were just tagged. So, hey [MENTION=11022]TrailLeadr[/MENTION], you've been tagged. You too [MENTION=13060]Cableguy[/MENTION] and all of you other old timers. [MENTION=46008]Steve T[/MENTION]oo, gonna try it myself to see what happens.

    [MENTION=1]Steve[/MENTION], it isn't. Tags are lightly used in the Guess The Next Poster thread. I think you'll see them more frequently as people get used to them. However, one issue that makes them a pain to use is that you can't abbreviate names ... and that really hurts acceptance/assimilation of the feaure. For example, you can't do the @ symbol followed by 'Surreal' and get me. Can't do the @ symbol followed by 'Erica' or 'pmf' or 'Coach' and get the right people, either. I can remember the numerals that come after pmf and coach's names only because I've typed them a fair bit. But I can't, for the life of me, tell what you sarge's actual username is. (Something like sgtssomethingornother).

    You get the idea.
