The New Mention System

Recommended Posts

Silentdarkness1    1161

This is more of a forum thing than a DS thing, but I feel like this will get noticed easier if it's here. Sorry if it's clogging the place up.

 

Looks like the forum admin removed the old mention system, and instead lets you put out a mention by highlighting one of the member's posts and then clicking Mention.

 

Honestly, this seems a bit annoying. There has to be an easier way to do this.

 

EDIT: Besides typing in the code manually.

The mentions were causing some conflicts with the forum, so it was changed around a little bit. It will come back at some point in the future.

........W8. There was a way to do it without typing in @[member = ???]. I've done it that w8y my entire life. 

Well yes. You used to be able to just type @Member and the forums would handle it for you automatically.

Technical;y this is in Status Updates, but is there a reason some people can post clickable URL links there and others cannot? I am in the cannot group when using Google Chrome if that helps.

Rules are there for a reason. What belongs into the DS forums? DS stuff! What belongs into the Off-topics section? All the other stuff! It's that easy. I think I could make my 10 year old bro figure that out.

Why would it matter how much people notice it? That won't make Klei solve it faster, they're onto the thing and that's that. Anyone who doesn't know about the new mentioning can run a forum search for this, that takes like 20 seconds.

If they can't do a simple forum search then that's their own problem.

I don't want a forum to get clogged up because of attention-threads that are unrelated to the sub-forum. You don't go into a pub and announce that you go to the cinema now to raise awareness of a new movie, would you?

Everything has its proper place.

The forum search itself is a complete joke though. Not sure if most people know that googling's the best option.

It's more like a PSA than anything else, tbph. Also, none of this is for my gain. There's likely some people who use Mentions who are suddenly confused as to why Mentions don't work the way they used to. And since Joe figures it's not important enough to make an announcement about....

And that is still no reason to break the order of sub-forums. You can inform people locally if you're worried about RP, no problem. It would be perfectly on-topic there, since mentions can be vital to RP.
