    Dear IL’ites,

    We made some updates to our site and you are all going to love it!

    @ Mentions - In your posts, when you want to get someone's attention, you can mention that person with an "@" symbol before their username, like this @username. When you do that, the member you are mentioning will get a notification (see picture below). How cool is that?

    We also added two other notification options.

    Quote notifications - whenever a member quotes your post, you will get notified (see picture below).

    New Post Notifications - Whenever there is a new post in a thread you are subscribed to, you will get a notification. See here, how to subscribe to a thread.

    In all the three, when you click on the notification, you will be taken to your control panel that will provide links to the specific posts.

    Now, let’s do a fun game. Respond in this thread by notifying atleast 5 of your friends in the site. Let me start @cheeniya @kamla @jey @IL_Admin @srama.

    It's your turn now!

    OPEN ISSUES

    Lot of you have enthusiastically started using the new feature and have identified glitches. We are diligently working on it and will update as and when issues are resolved. Below are the list of open issues.

    1) The notifications are persistent even after clicking on them. We will be getting this fixed sooner!

    2) Some of the members are getting fatal error when trying to click into @mentions and userCP.

    3) While tagging, when IL'ites separate the username with comma, it includes the comma as part of the username and doesn't tag the correct user.

    4) Some of the members aren't getting the notifications.

    @laks09

    There should be no immediate comma after the username. Try again.

    If you haven't received the notification, can you logout and then login. It is designed to show up as soon as the page is loaded (without the need for a login), but for some cases, it requires a login. We are trying to isolate the case.

    @Jey I got it to work with adding spaces before commas. I logged out and logged back in but no luck :( I don't see any @ notifications. Maybe it doesn't like ME :rant
