Not sure if you are trying to But there is a notification instead of likes or quote , there is a mention notification. No idea how you do it or access it.

Go into user Edit User profile , second from right is mentions
About Me
Statistics
Friends
Contact Info
Mentions
Quotes\
Going further and more complicated, using Tools, second down Quick Links, go over and down, under Miscellaneous , User tagging services, click on that, and this is what you get;

So according to my theory Testacc should get a mention by me stating Testacc , possibly not who knows, don't blame me or the lack of drinking, I can forward the email.

What purpose do mentions serve? What is the point?

I've used this on other forums to let someone know that they've been mentioned in a post, or if I think they may have information related to the topic. Not everyone reads every post, so they may miss it otherwise. If they have something further to contribute to the thread, they can then chime in.

Thanks for the info.
Does the mention directly link to the topic in question or would it require a search? Thanks again.

Never mind, I asked a stupid question. Look before you leap and waste other's time, Smiley.

All I had to do was click on the named person and it took me to their profile, click on Mentions and it shows the topics.
