    Some of you may have noticed we have a tagging system now on GardenersCorner.

    How it works....

    All you have to do is place an 'at' symbol (@), followed (without a space) by their username ie 'Zigs'. So you would write them as Zigs

    When you start writing a username, a little box will appear to the lower left of the screen with the possible username you can tag.

    Once you tag someone, that person will get a notification to let them know where you have tagged them, this can be used for many reasons where you may want someone to see a specific post/topic.

    I hope this helps

    Nathan

    PS awaits Zigs to reply now I have tagged him :snork:

      :snork: Nope, no notification, I just noticed your post.

      I just tagged Carl, as he's not noticed Pete's question on thursday, lets see if that worked.

        The notification will happen at the top right of the screen, where you are notified of new replies to posts or even your private conversations.
