    Default [Site Feature] Mention System

    Was a mention system ever discussed e.g. @UserName (rep-like notification as a result)? I tried searching around but couldn't find a thread. Discord has adopted it recently as part of their functionality but I believe it was originally an idea older than them (twitter?).

    I believe it's this mod specifically after a tiny amount of research but I've never tried installing it.

    I admit I find it especially useful on the org, whenever people want to get my attention.

    I think you should post this in the Q & S forum or at least post this in the Prothalamos, just to allow all members to post.

    It's not really much of an issue of participation here, more so seems a technical question about if it is doable more than anything.

    Of which I am not sure of. Don't know how any sort of mention system would work on these Vbulletin boards, I'm not the tech savvy guy in Hex, if it's something we can implement GED/Squid would have to give input and set it up. Too bad you can't mention them here for that...

    Perhaps the time has come to actually switch forum software or at least updating the current forum software whenever that's to gonna to happen.

    Our current forum uses two DragonByte mods (as indicated above this one is a DragonByte mod as well), so I assume it is just a matter of technical staff applying it if Hex / GED approves.

    I know GED is around, so we could probably discuss the mention system with him. It'll be really helpful indeed

    I mentioned a mention system in 2017 in the QnS, Leonardo you said it was a possibility to implement.

    I already messaged Squid and if it's possible, we'll ask GED's opinion about its imlementation

    This would be particularly conductive to good debate I think. You can use the mention system to reference, ask, or invite a person into a conversation.

    Another voice in support of this. We use it on our internal forum and it's very useful.

    I'm all for this, I often see the @name used quite a lot already, having it actually do something would be even better!

    I would also readily throw my hat in the ring to support this.

    As mentioned by others, it is a standard on many forms of group chat tools nowadays.

    A system that notified you when quoted would also be a great help.

    As long as that notification can be switched off, sure. I'd find it really annoying getting notifications every time I was quoted, which is very often.

    have to agree with Quintus; I would hate to be swarmed by notifications.. for people like me who work in many different department and/or post around quite a lot, being quoted is a things that happens many times per day.

    I'd likely install or something like it but not until all the server/vbulletin upgrades are completed. As far back as 2014 I was working on a quote notification system, though with being inactive or at least mostly so for many years its been left incomplete.

    I agree with Squid on this and will also agree with the comments about turning off the notifications. I read through the plugin thread on vbulletin.org and I have 2 problems with the one that was linked to.

    1. Its email based. It should be PM based.
    2. The one that is PM based the notification cannot be turned off.

    If you guys run across one that meets those requirements I will take a look at it and if Squid approves the code behind it we can try one. I am not going to go looking for new plugins right now as I already have a pile of work to do, but if someone digs one up I will check it out.

    Thanks! It would be really nice if we could have it at some point, with the option to switch it notifications off, if possible.
