How do you tag someone in a thread?

I've noticed in the Christmas present swap thread that people are being tagged so they know others want their gifts.
Tried @ before the name a la Facebook but that didn't seem to work.

Oh do you mean ' EricNorthmanIsMyMaker I'd like your smellies'?

If so you put a * around each end of the name.

There is no tagging on MN. It's just bolding the name so it stands out, as lougle just said.

That's exactly what I meant lougle. Thanks

Hello, we are actually working on a tagging feature as we speak, so you soon (hopefully) will be able to use @username and that person will get a message if you so wish (and if they so wish).
