    Some exciting news this Monday morning.

    MyGaming now supports @mentions, quote notifications, user tagging, and hashtags.

    Example: "Hey, @qornea , @Kevin ... Get back to work!"

    You can also tag users to notify them about a specific thread, or to indicate that it might be of specific interest to them (in case they missed it) without @mentioning them in a post. The box for user tagging is below every thread.

    Some of you may have already started receiving e-mails when people quote your posts. The system notifies you in two ways: e-mail and via the forum notifications menu.

    You can change the default behaviour via User CP. For the direct link to the relevant settings menu, click this: User Tagging Settings.

    As for hashtags... I hate them, but I'm willing to give them a shot. Maybe they actually turn out to be useful.
    You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted, then used against you.

    I have never understood the point of Hash tagging every second word in a sentence!

    Ya, I have an intense dislike for the way people use hashtags these days, they just make tag a bunch of random words, and none of them individually make any sense as a tag, so it's a complete waste and totally pointless.

    I suppose all this allows for greater social interaction on the forum.

    Yup! The information is in the OP. I have now made it bold. Here's the direct link to the settings page (right at the bottom of the User CP menu) - http://mygaming.co.za/forum/usertag....action=options
