    Is there a way ...

    Ya'll know I'm partially here to identify this kinda stuff solely to help others.

    So, another forum I'm on has a feature where - when you want to 'call' someone's attention to a particular post - you can type "@username" (e.g., @crabcake) in the body of the post, and it will show up for that person as a notification so they know to go check that out, kinda like how if you had a PM or something ... a little red flag or something appears on a notification icon. The other forum uses MyBB, if that makes any difference; I know you all use something else.

    I'm just asking because I just so happened to see where someone threw a 'shout-out' thread to me because it was on the top/main page still; however, I likely would have missed that if it got bumped down by another thread/post. And I know it's all about me so ...
    In all seriousness, it's kind of a cool feature, if it's available and can be turned on. And I just happened to think about it when I saw the thread from another forumite this afternoon.
    Just askin' ... TIA!

    We don't currently have that feature, but it would be pretty cool. I get a lot of "Hey Vrai" threads that I don't see, so we'll put that on the wish list.

    Exactly! And if you don't go through and look at "new posts" (which I never do; I just skim the landing page for juicy stuff to read), then you miss them. Awesome; thanks!

    Oh good grief. Where is the poll for that; so to speak? Please don't act like that age old saying that men only have one thing on their minds. That makes men look stupid. Just sayin'. Oh yeah, I forgot about Bill Clinton. Never mind.
