So apparently Jcink has @mentions now. It's still in beta, but this is pretty exciting!! For the longest time, a major complaint I'd heard about using forums vs. social media is the lack of a convenient notification feature to keep on top of activity. So let's give this a bit of a test run, shall we?

I got an email that said I was tagged, Tim :P

Wondering where the notifications show on the site, though. Are they like PM toasts? Let's see.

SG2Tiger - down the bottom of the page by your controls and stuff it says Alerts(2) for me.

I imagine you can turn email notifications off and we probably shouldn't abuse it too much :P

Ah I see, Tim, that's kinda neat XD

In coming up with plans to refresh the board structure I was contemplating adding a 'tagbox' (a second chatbox just for tags) as some forums do, or having a section for tag threads or something, so people could keep on top of when it's their turn in an RP. But this changes everything, because now you just need to toss a @mention to the person whose turn it is and they'll get a little notice :D

So yeah, we may not want to abuse it too much for non-RP purposes, to avoid cluttering up peoples' notifications ^^;

Looks pretty configurable, though. If you go to your Controls you'll see a section for Alert Settings that looks like this:

So you could turn on or off as many different conditions as you want, including emails, or the ability for me to see tags for all my accounts under SG2Tiger as opposed to only when I log in as them. People can tailor the alerts to their preferences, or even disable them completely - though I'd strongly recommend everyone at least allow on-forum alerts for @mentions, if nothing else, otherwise people might be trying to @mention you under the assumption you'll see it while you remain blissfully unaware that someone is looking for you.
