We just took a new (beta) feature live, and I'd love for everyone to give it a try!
You can now tag members in blog comments. You accomplish this by typing @ followed by at least 3 characters. This performs a search of active members (we search their username as well as first and last name) and brings up a list you can pick from. Choose the member you want to tag, finish and submit your post, and you're all set!
Right now, if you tag a member they will receive an email alert with a link to view your comment. In the future we will give members a choice of how they want to receive alerts, but for now this was the simplest setup.
Of course, our plan is to roll this out to the forums and other areas of the site ASAP. I know member tagging will be a real game changer in the forums, since it will let members reference other members easily, making their own post more informative while bringing others into the conversation.
Give it a try, and let me know what you think!Add Comment
