So you use the @ beside the member.

Not sure which area in English your are referring too but I will try;
: to talk about, write about, or refer to (something or someone) especially in a brief way : to mention He made mention of their contributions , like your many contribution in the forum.

Not sure if you are trying to >:):laugh::huh::yeahsmile: 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;

Testing mentions

Sure >:):grin2:
Thought I would try my alter ego Testacc, going cross eyed , think it is time to go to bed.What are the odds of getting a PM asking that, which I did.
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.

Going Backwards

Let me say I am getting upset, it appears that it strictly me and my accounts that have this problem. I use Likes extensively , to date I have given 1304 Likes, I use this as a means to verify in the Classified section that the OP has updated his PM setting for email notification. :frown2:, well in the process of correcting my Testacc and Testacc2 accounts for Likes, they have succeeded today in Disabling all my accounts for Likes. I pulled another work order, ,so for now I am stuck. The last for sale is updated, however I can't like anything.

Sorry Glen - you can't like anything?... or - you DON'T LIKE ANYTHING?


:wink2:
Thanks for posting, I was about to log out, your post in mentions, I can use that temporarily in place of a like in For Sale

FYI anyone that has ever looked in the Classifieds For Sale, when you see a like by me in the OP add, that is to acknowledge they have email notification set correctly on PM sent. I scan through every so often, now that Likes aren't working ( I strongly suspect FaceBook) I am using mentions temporarily and editing the OP add, putting in mention and editing note.
