When you need to get the attention of another member in a thread, you can use our mention (tag) function to alert them.
In your reply, simply add the at sign (@), immediately followed by their username, with no space.
Once you have clicked to submit the post, it will highlight the users name.
Another option to mention someone is to simply highlight the username (after you type it in your message) and then click the icon that looks like a speaker. This is especially helpful when a username includes a space in it.
You can view mentions and quotes either on your profile or in the drop down notifications in the upper right hand corner of the community.
You can edit your options for these alerts by going to your User CP and scrolling down to User Tagging > Settings in the left side navigation panel.
