Just noticed the @ feature!

I went to respond to a particular poster on another thread and after I typed the @ it came up with a drop down of everyone who had already posted on the thread. Is this new? I’ve never seen it before. Makes it so much easier to respond to a particular person.

@Asta19 oh thank you OP I didn't know about this feature either 😁👏👍🏻 - will make me confident I've spelled the name right now as I always go and check after I've posted.

Yes me too! Some people’s names are really tricky!

It doesn't for me I do use the @ to highlight someone's name but I have to type the name myself ,Sad

I noticed it happened around the same time they made the bookmark feature nice and prominent on the mobile site. I doubt that will stop placemarkers though!

@Asta19 thank you, very handy. I always hated trying to remember the spellings of some usernames, so much easier Smile

This isn't completely new, has been around for a while, but it's easier now.
