    Default Forum Tagging Suggestion

    I didn't see the option of tagging friends or people so they can see the message someone posted (as you can do it on facebook, when you click on @ and afterwards some names appear that you can tag on your message). I don't know if that's possible, given that it's a forum, but I really find it a useful feature to tag your friends so they can see your message and help you immediately.
    Thank you.

    I try to help people based on what they post and if I think I can help in that specific technical area.

    I would like to 'second' this suggestion. And I guess it would not be too difficult to implement (? as if I would know!) It would be handy for instance in replying to a thread to be able to thank multiple people for their assistance or possibly to ask for more info, by typing the first few letters of their name, and some kind of auto-fill kicking in. For example if wishing to reply to a thread which has had contributions by James, gogalthorp, knurpht and Henk, by typing jcm... or gogal..... the option to auto-complete to "jcmccdaniel " or "gogalthorpe", to their correct user name on the forum would be a good thing, doing this now I have open a fresh instance of the page to refer to and copy/paste the names.

    I don't know that that's a feature of vBulletin, but we can look into it.
