    Hi all,

    I am looking at some different addons to put back into the site for you all to use.

    With the Tagging system we had before there are two options

    1 - The old one which uses the @[username] context and sends a PM
    2 - A new Facebook style alerts system, it just uses @username and sends alerts to an alert system at the top of the page and in your profile, but does not send a PM though I am sure that I can probably add this if needs be

    Does anyone have a preference here?
    I will probably tie in the alerts stuff regardless as I want to use that for the tipping comp

    I think alert system is probably fine, the majority of people tagged are frequent flyers on this site so the PM would be superfluous to requirements

    @Dan

    just testing the new system. To tag with this system we simply use the format of
    @\username
    if the username has spaces we do
    @\"\username\"

    Without the \ in them

    At this stage no. I was finding them annoying, however this may prove that lots of tags are missed, if so I might integrate an opt-in PM if I can

    Agree 110%.....I'd like some sort of alert system BUT not have to go in to PM's just to find someone tagged you, and then have to delete it a LOT of work for what was (in many occasions) a waste of time.

    VERY happy to get PM's but I do reckon they should be just that....messages!!

    It worked for me Dan (sorry I was off having dinner) but there's something wrong and scary about your avatar!

    @Dan


    EDIT:

    I think the alert system is fine (ok truth be told I just deleted a long diatribe of stuff as I thought you were asking about emails).

    My guess is I could still get an email telling me there is an alert?

    It's just that on the weekends I stay away from the site as the games are on here 24-48 hours later and I don't want spoilers.

    However....If you guys realise this and promise not to feel offended if I don't get back to you straight away from an alert/pm.....then it's all good :)

    @Berkeley_Eagle, if Dan hasn't fixed it yet, just use [video=youtube] before the YouTube address and [/video] after the YouTube address. e.g.:

    [video=youtube]youtube clip address[/video]
