    Yep, just use the '@' symbol and start typing the first few letters of the username and it should pre-populate @HD_ACE

    You tag by typing @ and starting to type in the username. So if I type in - ignoring spaces - @ R i x ... you'll see that a drop-down menu appears after putting in at least 3 characters, and I can select "Rixter". Like this: @Rixter And @HD_ACE

    The point of it is that Rixter and HD_ACE will now get an alert, and know that I want them to look at this thread. It's great for inviting somebody to come and comment upon a thread where you know they'll have useful input. :)

    That sounds a lot more complicated than typing "@" and the start of the username, @Azazel!
