    Seebs, I am so dumb sometimes - you don't need to agree or disagree, just take my word for it. How do you get those nice @name highlighted in posts? It's such a neat way of drawing peoples attention. And also, does it have any effect such as flagging their alerts?

    Exactly like that. That sign and then the name. (You accidentally tagged me. Hi, I'm name.)

    (Edit, yes, I got an alert for this.)

    The way it works for me is that I type @ and then begin typing the name, and a drop-down menu appears listing usernames beginning with the letters I've typed. I select the one I want, and that's it, done.

    I don't know if it does the linky-thing if you don't select the name from the menu. Hmmm. @Elaienar is going to test that.

    Oh and yes, I get an alert if someone tags me in a post like that.

    Edit: The linky-thing happens if you just type out the whole username manually, which is what I did up there. Also I didn't get an alert for tagging myself.
