Default Tagging/Referencing

This might get confusing since we already have a useless function called tagging on here that people only use to be dicks. So let me explain it and then we can call it something else.

We've got a lot of threads like "Spill your Guts" and "Recommend Music to [Poster X]". In many cases, I don't see a reference to anything directed my way until later. Can we look into finding a way to post something and allow that post to notify someone they've been addressed in a thread? On facebook (where I'm taking the term from) its usually @Jackhammer.

If we did that here, the site would PM him with a link to the post mentioning him. It would allow the discussions to be more fruitful. Lets call it "referencing."

Thats a good idea @TheBig3, it'd also be like twitter. A problem would be what happens if I tagged @TheBig3 more than once, wouldn't you get more and more notifications each time?

Thats a technical question. I don't know what the site is capable of but like anything else, if people are dicks with something we can ban them. Multiple notifications would constitute harassment.

I personally think it's a great suggestion. Given how slow the technological progress has been on this website, however, I have my doubts it will ever get off the ground. However, you can use the search function as a less-accurate way of checking to see if you've been mentioned.

And I currently do, but I think we can agree that features of this nature are becoming common place and would be a massive advantage.

It sounds like a good idea. Using the search function to search your username isn't really cutting it anymore, and it's hard enough to read through the results as it is. However, I'm with Conan on this one. It most likely won't get implemented.

I'm just basing that off of the current speed at which improvements are being made. Maybe it will be a feature in 5 years?

I like this, but am inclined to agree on its likelihood. Not to mention we've just sent them a list of requests that we're crossing our fingers over.
