There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Note: This tutorial is update for new editor on 23-Oct-2015
While writing a post you can mention or tag a user or member, by mentioning a member you send them notification that they should pay attention on the post you just mentioned them. So how to do this?

While writing a post, if you want to mention or tag a user start with at symbol ("@") follow by his username. So if you want to mention a member having username "xyzabc", just type @xyzabc and you are done.
But if there is space in username, for example "Xyz Abc" then use double quote around username like this - @"Xyz Abc" and you are done. You can use double quote on above example also, but it is not required if username has no space between them.

Note: Username should be type exactly as it is, please pay attention to spellings, spaces and capital or small letters in username. If it did not match with exact username it will not work. Username is located below the image of member in posts.

Using this method will send an alert to the mentioned or tagged members about the post you tagged them.
Let me know if you need any help

To mention user start with "@" and continue to write few first letter (3 to 4) of the username, editor will automatically show you matching name
