Default The @ symbol with a members name

When this is done am I supposed to get a message? Someone posted @Dennis Alwon and I did not receive a message. Is it because of ad block?

@Dennis Alwon!

It should send you a notification with or without adblocker.

The question is "Do you get notified of a notification?" so unless you click that drop down periodically, you're not going to see it. I click that drop down about 3/ year or so, so if you do that with my name, unless I come back to the thread, I'll never know it's there.

I imagine if someone wants to get ahold of you bad enough they'll send a message.

@Dennis Alwon, look at this:

Name:  Screen Shot 2019-07-03 at 8.35.37 AM.png
Views: 21
Size:  10.1 KB

You see where it says Welcome, HackWork? Click on your name there on your screen, that is your profile. Then click on the tab at the top that says "Mentions". That is where it will show the people that mentioned you in their post using the @ symbol.

Now look at the picture again. You see where it says Private Messages? When someone mentions me, or Likes a post, or sends me a private message, that will change to tell me that there is a new notification. If yours does not do that, then you have to change a setting or two. Let us know and we can help.

Thanks all. Hacks had what I was looking for-- I remember it now but obviously forgot it. I thought it would send me a notice. If I have to look in mentions all the time I find it kind of worthless. I expected a pm or something like that.

It should send you a notification at the top of your screen where it says "Private Messages" in the picture that I posted. If it doesn't say it there, then you have to turn that notification on.

Take a look to see if this is checked:

I don't think you can @ mention yourself.

Still nothing. Is there something I need to enable. I looked but I don't see it. Everything is enabled

I see it all in the mention area but no alert that it is there

Yes, that is an issue that I had today too. But it is separate.

Those two options that you have to uncheck are in the "Settings" at the bottom of the left hand side under "User Tagging".
