    We have installed a new User Tagging system. What this does is allow you to mention users in your posts by adding @ before their name, this will then notify that person that they have been mentioned and will direct them to the post, thereby grabbing their attention should you wish for them to offer you advice or if you just love them and like to mention them. :)

    In order to use it properly you must use their exact name with the @ symbol, like this:
    -----
    My 4ft tank is empty and I need @RiaanP to come and fill it please.
    -----
    As you can see, the username is automatically highlighted and Riaan will now get notified that his name has been used and he will receive a link to this post.

    @Manic, you can't tag yourself, only other people.
