Here is a new feature that I absolutely LOVE!
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.
You may see alerts at the top right hand corner of the forum when someone mentions you, or you can view mentions on your profile. (You will see quotes in this same area.)
If you prefer not to be alerted to tags and quotes, you can set your preferences by clicking on the user panel and scrolling down to user tagging settings.
Another way you can tag someone is by typing out their exact username, highlighting it with your cursor and then clicking the icon (in advanced mode) that looks like a speaker.
This is just an FAQ tutorial thread. If you have additional questions or need help with this topic, please start a new thread in our PreservationTalk.com Help and Suggestions section of the community.
