I have no idea as to whether or not this is possible, but I think it would be nice to have a feature in the forums where you can 'mention' a user in a forum post.

When you mention a user, the user mentioned will receive a notification in their inbox; it would say something like "<user> mentioned you in <forum thread title>!".

To execute a mention, it could be something simple like "@<username>".


Example:

Tech: Wow @Paril what an amazing feature you've added to the website!

And instead of it showing "@Paril" it would show "Paril" in a special look so people know he was mentioned. It could even be a hyperlink to the user's profile, even.

Again, I have no idea as to whether or not this could be done but I thought it'd be nice to suggest.
Thanks for listening.

I think this might already been in the future forums. It would have to be something you can toggle on and off though as some people who have generic names might find it a tad obnoxious. :P

As said in the ticket, a 'mention' should not happen when just typing a name but rather when intentionally trying to mention a user (example used in the ticket is using "@" as a keyword). So accidental mentions would not occur (might be a good idea for chat as well? Maybe? Possibly?).

Still think that a toggle would be a good option to have, just not for the reason you listed :P. I was more thinking about people just not wanting to be mentioned, regardless of their username being a common word or not.
