Now, when you link to a member profile in a post, it will also notify them via PM (personal message) that you've tagged them! Smiley

You can use this new feature in some pretty awesome ways:

  • Tag a member in a swap gallery thread to thank them for the wonderful package they sent you.
  • Tag a member to let them know their project or tutorial inspired the one you're posting.
  • Tag a member to ask them to input with their expertise on a craft discussion thread.
  • Tag a Moderator to give them a thank you & a hug!
  • If you are a Swap Organizer, tag a member to officially welcome them to the swap.
  • Tag a member to notify them of a project you think they'd love.
  • ...and more! Smiley

Using the tagging feature is very, very easy.  You simply use the Insert Link to Member button you've always used for linking to someone's profile.   Just click that little person icon in the post option buttons and type the member's username between the member brackets like this:
Code:
Hey, [member]sweets4ever[/member]!  Check out this post!  I think you'll love it.

Now, when you use this feature in a post, the system will automatically send them a friendly personal message to let them know they've been tagged! Smiley  They will receive a personal message similar to this one:

Hi sweets4ever,

This automated personal message is to notify you that sweets4ever has just mentioned you in a post!:)
Check out their post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=401667.0.

Thanks!

Craftster and crew  Smiley

P.S. Please do not reply to this PM. We won't see it. To turn these notices off, please visit your PM.

All profiles are set to automatically have this feature enabled, but if you would prefer to not be notified when someone thinks you're awesome Cheesy you can disable it in your profile settings via the yellow tape measure menu at the top of the screen.  MY CRAFTSTER > My Profile > Personal Message Options -- Notify by personal message when a member tags you in a post.

Many thanks to kittykill for suggesting this new feature and to everyone who voted to make it happen! Kiss  PS.  That sentence just tagged her to come look at this thread!  How fun is that?? Cheesy

Enjoy! Smiley
