    I think it'll be really cool if i could tag somebody in the comments and it will come up at their notification bar (like how youtube/facebook comment replies work)

    ex : @narhwai

    and i'll get a notification that someone mentioned my name at their comments :P

    There's still the possibility of abusing that feature. Tagging someone's name in a post that doesn't even remotely relate to them can tend to be annoying.

    That's true... Even though it would be very useful, we can Always just look at the most recent thing we commented on. I mean I do that anyways so its not necessarily gonna be useful for me... If anything we should get a notification if we're quoted..

    I've seen many websites use the @Username feature, and it rarely gets abused in my experience.

    I think that it will be fine, and in the event that people abuse it, give them a warning. Put it in the rules or something not to do that.

    Didn't we used to have the mention feature that did that? I never really noticed if it left us or not...

    Then you can make a disable option at the settings?

    We never did, however this is very much possible.
    Waiting for more opinions on the matter before I do anything about it.

    tbh this would seem very useful

    for quicker feed back

    BUT make sure to put a filter on it so no one can spam tag or a warning for spam taging

    this is really useful, don't know why it isn't already here. should be especially good for collabs and similar things.
    if people abuse it, just give them a warn or something

    This is now possible. Give it a try sometime (but don't abuse it like Leo said otherwise some warns will be handed out)
