A difficult one I'm about to propose...



How about alerts when someone @'s someone else's name like on Twitter.



We have a lot of experts in many fields who may miss threads where the expertise is necassary.
A quick @ could alert them like a normal message for their 2 cents!



I know we could just as easily private message them...
I guess that alternative will be kept as opposed to trying this idea out.


I presuppose that, because it may be a difficult one to work into the system.



@SkepticOverlord what do you guys think



(Something like the above!)

Do you mean owners, or public folks as well?

Paint me a more specific picture, Mr. Speirs...

Thanks!

I was thinking this just the other day, so if you saw a post and you thought that a certain member would have a contribution to make you could tag them and they would recieve an alert.

SO likes twitter for good reason so I imagine it's crossed his mind and if it can be done I for one would like to see it.

It's like ATS but with less rules and more "normal people"

It's not as much fun.

Half the crap on ATS doesn't always work right, can we even type the word window yet? why add to it?

I'll say this though, there seems to be an uptick in user experience requests. Perhaps maybe it's time for a new overhaul. Anyone up for writing a new platform? I'm sure they're (the owners) are up for it, just keep the donations coming.

You can't type it at the end of a sentance and have a . afterwards unless they fixed it, window.

For all of us AB.


Example...

We have some excellent scientists here...

Not naming names as its a T&C to talk about members...


But say you type in "@ATSMemberName" they'd get an alert in a science thread they might have missed.

Exactly NS...



I did wonder that because the ATS Twitter has started picking up, a similar mentions might have been thought about.

Twitter is a decadent place full of trolls and wondrous moments combining into a melting pot of s# & gold...

Just try not to get s# on your gold

Only problems I have is with the search engine...

As an alternative I just type what I would have typed into Google and it refines it a little better.


I accept that ATS is not primarily a search engine anyways, so it's no bother.


Window! Window? Window.

window? window! window.

It's lower case "window full stop" that doesn't work.

I like the system on Reddit. Type in /u/username and they get an alert.

It would turn into total mess, many people tweeting to someone. Threads would start a flame war as all alerted to ones view would be instantly in thread. There would not be privacy and any respect to someone to have some.

I can see that side of it too, dolluka.
Good point.

I just PM the member and invite them to join the convo. Seems to work ok. Just not as convenient as Charlies idea.

It would also make mods work to impossible mission. Mods they have now, would not be enough, most likely even 10xmods would be in trouble. It would be intresting to see this for one day thought.. i could take time how long it takes to me to sign out.
