Well it is really easy to mention someone, here is how to do it:

1. first type the @ sign.



2. Then type the person's name.


3. Then click on the persons name (bellow).

SouthDakotaGirl (< it should look like this when done.)
Note: If the name has spaces put this whether the spaces are: _.
For example, for An Intelligent Moron, you would write @An_Intelligent_Moron
(Thank you, Dragan for reminding me about the spacing)

4. Now try it in the comments!

Note: Mentioning doesn't work on mobile.

I could've used this a while ago... I couldn't figure out how to and I didn't want to mess up, I finally did the "@" thing and figured it out. XD

Glad to see something like this up…
It (and a variety of similar How_to_do_stuff tips) would make a fine collection to be pinned in a welcome newcomers FAQ. (A collection I've started keeping qv. Site Usage, but which is woefully empty as yet…)

SouthDakotaGirl

test in BBCode @SouthDakotagirl indicates this does not work in that mode (and I still don't know how to find a member number :( )
The autocomplete feature is also… <_< interesting…
@ alone brings up two members already mentioned in the thread but SouthDakotagirl is not included in any of the accessible lists as one types in the name ( S… So… etc), nor does @SouthDakotagirl (if fully typed) produce the desired result. [On the positive side, the autocomplete appears to be case insensitive.]

Don't forget if they have a blank space in their name like An Intelligent Moron
Just use the "_" key as substitute of those spaces, if you do not know to to use that key your board should have one key that has a long line on the top and shorter line on the bottom, press shift while clicking that key for the longer line.

Ahaha. Yeah, people sometimes seem to struggle with my username. I didn't even know about the "_" trick until a little while ago.
