Reading through some threads and comments etc I keep seeing lots of abbreviations, I was wondering if there is a thread or link where I can find out the meaning for them, I'm mainly on pregnancy threads and find on some of them it feels inappropriate to ask

Thank you

Also while I have your attention haha how do I tag people, I'm only using the app on my phone (android) so think I'm missing somethings?? Xx

I think it's @SpongeBobJudgeyPants, (for example).

If you want to 'tag' someone properly, you have to tag their entire NN, so (sorry Sponge!) you have to do it this way :


because that way your 'tagged' person will then get an email to say they've been tagged on a thread, and they can return to that thread quickly.

If you only use a short version of their NN it won't work. So tagging @Sponge will not send her an email alert!

Having said that, many of us have disabled the email alerts to 'tagging' anyway grin
