the forum now has two new major features: an alert system and a user mentioning system. if you want to refer to a user directly, use the @ symbol followed by their name, and you'll get a list of users to mention. this works anywhere on the forum! the API will take care of the rest for you when you select your desired username, like this: @rtil
the alert system works as you browse and should pop-up notifications on the top right corner. you can dismiss them or follow up on them as you please. you will be notified when someone:
- mentions you
- quoted your post
- gave you a pizza point
- sent you a personal message
- adds you as a friend
you can change alert settings in your profile
. i will also be adding a system later on that allows you to like individual posts, but it will take a little longer to set up. it will also be included in notifications.
i just installed these so they might not work perfectly yet, so if you notice any bugs or something not working, let me know.
