    I've seen this on other boards and it's a nice feature.

    You just say a posters name like @Colton, and it sends them a notification that their name was mentioned. Sounds dumb, but it's really useful. Add it?

    Pretty funny--I just got a notification on my phone from the jazzfanz app that I was tagged in this post. :)

    So apparently the board already has that feature, although I didn't know it. I'm not sure if it only works through the app or if you can change a setting to make it so you get notifications on the regular board (I didn't; I just got the app notification).

    Let's try it for you: @Howard

    I just looked through the regular settings and didn't see anything. Perhaps @Jason will know.

    Weird. All I got was a quote notification, but I'm on my phone using safari, no app.

    Must be the app. Nice propaganda for dragging more users to the app you guys. Let me guess, the app has the chatbox!!

    No, @addictionary - the app doesn't have the chatbox :)

    I'll look into adding notifications outside the app for something like this too. Good suggestion.

    Is there a way to opt out of this feature? Like I do NOT want to be sent notifications regarding a S/O in a post. Admin, please advise.

    [MENTION=1]Jason[/MENTION] Haha. I bet everyone is feeling important right now. Well except for Peeks since he was the one who originally came up with the joke back then.

    Still, great things would come to life with a dislike button. Just consider considering it.

    [MENTION=15]VINYLONE[/MENTION] just invited everyone on the site to tag him in a post. Since I quoted and tagged, he'll probably get two. hahaha

    Looking into this as I agree its likely something we need. I may disable the email-based notification globally if this isn't something we can support.

    I appreciate the effort you put into allowing folks to opt out. Thank you.
