type the @ sign followed by the username. the System will do the rest.

:shame
Oh, please don't use this tool in an annoying fashion, like I just did with [MENTION=47381]reba[/MENTION], that's not good. ;)

Urk it calls attention to a member.... say I see a post you might like over in the A& T thread.... I can post my reply over there and make sure you see it...

Maybe I need a moderators help I could @ Sparrow and he gets the notice quickly

Yes, you may, anytime, but you'd have to call [MENTION=13142]Sparrowhawke[/MENTION]
because @HeyYouAin'tHereAreYouSparrow? is a nickname and the system won't find me that way.

... I like it when there is a 'guy vs. lady' counting game going on but otherwise don't use it unless I know that the person that I call will appreciate it or is named reba.

And yes, it does send to her, she won't mind me answering

I prefer doing it this way

Code:
<!--mention link style goes here-->
<style type="text/css">
a:link {color:#000000;}      
a:visited {color:#000000;} 
a:hover {color:#000000}  
a:active {color:#000000;}  
</style>

<!--Mention code goes here-->
@
<div style="float:left;">
   <span>
        <blockquote><p>
              <a href=[B]"http://profile link[/B]" target="blank">
                      <u>[B]profile name[/B]</u>
               </a>
        </p></blockquote>
     </span>
</div>

<br clear="all"/>
Just kidding!

HTML isn't enabled on here anyway, I think. But my code above consists of 90 percent redundant HTML tags.




But, (being serious now) I think there should be an option so that when you click the name it jumps up to the persons previous post you are replying to.

For example:

If I wanted to reply to the 17th post in this thread,

Clicking Replying to Reba would take you to her post. It would jump up the page or to the previous page.

You can do this, but it's pointless and you have to make a BBcode url.

So instead, why isn't there an option when you click "Quick Reply" it would automatically add a link to the post number?
