    I was thinking, it shouldn't be too hard to implement 'tagging' someone in a post with the "@_______" style, would it? For instance:

    Then Randy would get a little update in the top right corner, like when you get a new 'like' or message. It would say '1 New Tag', he would click it, then read the post.

    This could also come in handy when someone replies to you on a thread you forgot about or haven't checked in a long time.

    Just an idea :p

    The last thing I need is a million updates whenever someone posts about Ibanez or trems.

    "Need to identify that RG? Ask @MaxOfMetal."

    "You should ask @MaxOfMetal to help you with that Floyd."

    :lol:

    I already get four or five PMs a day about that stuff.

    Lol then maybe an option to personally disable them? idk, i just know that a lot of users have asked for different variations of something like this, just brainstorming an idea that would work for all of them XD

    I've tried, but this prayer thing isn't working so well for me. ;)

    I suggested a couple of months ago a feature to notify you of when you've been quoted. Maybe that would be better?
