User tagging and the alert system are now being beta tested at this forum. There may or may not be some bugs.

To tag a username in a post, which sends an alert, simply type their full name with the @ symbol as a prefix. If their username contains spaces, it must be encased in brackets @[username with spaces].

For Example:

user posted image

user posted image

Note that if a username itself contains brackets, it unfortunately cannot be tagged at this time. There is no work-around.

Additionally, some names with special characters on the end will need to be encased in brackets so the system can identify between the end of a sentence and a username. Ex: @name! must be @[name!]

The maximum amount of usernames a member can tag in a post is currently set at 10 though it can be bumped up to 30.


All members can edit the alerts they wish to receive by clicking on 'My Controls' then 'Alert settings' under 'Options' on the left hand side of your screen at the bottom. Any questions or problems please let me know. Please remember this is in the testing stage so there may be bugs.

I just wanted to add that all alerts will be deleted after 90 days. Private messages will be saved indefinitely as always or until the user chooses to delete their private messages themselves.

I've copied this from the Jcink support forum as it best explains what the alert system is.

QUOTE
Our forum now supports the Alert System! What are Alerts?

Alerts are special notifications of actions that occur within the forum to make sure you don't miss important messages or content. The Alert System can be accessed from the user links menu, Alerts (0), on both mobile and desktop devices.

You will receive an alert for:

*New Personal Message Received to Inbox 
*New Friend Request Received 
*New Comment on Profile 
*New Topic Posted in Subscribed Forum 
*New Replies Posted in Subscribed Topic 
*Quoted Your Username in a Topic or Post 
*User Tagged You in a Topic or Post

The alert system is fully configurable under My Controls > Options > Alert Settings. This system is currently in testing, so please let us know about any issues you have.

To tag a username, simply type @username. Usernames with spaces must be tagged like this: @[user name]. Some usernames with special characters cannot be tagged, or require the brackets even though they do not contain spaces. Ex: @[username!].  Usernames with brackets cannot be tagged at this time.

You can also tag usernames in the topic description but that won't turn the username into a link. It will just send out an alert to that member that was tagged.

I've also updated the help files to include a tutorial on using the tagging feature.

Some new options have been added to the alert system settings.

The first setting deals with subaccounts which doesn't affect this forum as that feature is turned off.
