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.

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=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.
