I have set-up a new mention tagging system for our forum. I hope you enjoy this new option 

What is the purpose mention tag?

It helps members to tag other members by using @username

It gives you the ability to identify and reference people in a post. 

So for example @TDA   

If you hover your mouse over the name, a lovely little link to his profile will show up. Also, if notifications are turned on then TDA will receive a message letting him know that he has been tagged. 

You can then:

- See all the posts that TDA has every posted (there are quite a lot!)
- Friend him (why would you want to do that?)
- PM him
- View his profile

**If you have a username with a space or special characters, you must add " " After the @ and at the end of the name**

So for example @Arkay Dubya

We will also have a hastag keyword system - for example #bluebirds 

You can then search by hashtag or receive alerts for your favourite keywords (look in your profile at the tag section for more info)

Who knows if you this be used much but it's nice to have the options!

I've also added a lovely little chart showing the most tagged username and keywords! 

...it's not a popularity contest at all.

Some nice features Rhys! Arkay is pretty Twitter literate so I'd imagine he might be getting in on the hash-tagging scene

@Arkay may be twitter literate but he's not pretty.

Fair point but if you're gonna tag me Old Man @Cyncoedslumdog, at least read the instructions and do it properly. #SlumdogOut :taxi:

I did read them but as I'm the only special character on here I wasn't sure what they meant.
