    Please stop "including" me when you do this.

    Yet, if Deri had not have edited his post in the OP, you would have "included" everyone AGAIN by quoting him and NOT deleting the spoiler as he asked.

    See how that goes?

    One way @ mentions can be 'opted out' of is when the US v1 forum skin is used.

    Quantum Windbag, Noomi and I played around with it when mentions first came out in a feedback thread... :dunno:



    Edit: Bahhhh...posted before I read the thread.

    The reason why nobody on their deathbeds ever wishes they'd have eaten less bacon is because massive heart attacks caused by eating too much bacon never allow enough time to wish anything on your deathbeds!

    As for this @ mention thing, I'm fine with it if it mentions me directly, or if someone has a particular issue in which they know I'd be interested.

    But if it's neither, I view mass @ lists as spam. It's @spam.

    I already see all the posts because I click on the New Posts link. If I'm interested in the thread, I'll click on the link. I don't need someone @spamming to tell me about it. I usually just ignore the thread when someone @spams me. But I could get irritated if I start receiving a lot of @spams.

    Okay, I forgive your bacon crack. I'm sure you weren't thinking clearly at this time of day.

    Thank you to everyone who has contributed. Having read through all the posts I am going to make a suggestion that I think might work.

    I have started a USMB @Mention EXCLUDE/INCLUDE Preferences in the Lounge area.


    The purpose is to give all of us a place to add our names to whichever @Mention list we prefer to be on. The lists will be as follows;


    • Please EXCLUDE me from all MASS @Mentions!

    • Please EXCLUDE me from all INDIVIDUAL @Mentions!

    • Please INCLUDE me in all MASS @Mentions!

    http://www.usmessageboard.com/9002202-post1.html

    So this way we end up with a single combined list that everyone can refer to and update their own preferences as needed. I have entered names based upon what I gathered from the posts in this thread. If I have it wrong, my apologies.

    Thank you all for your input. Have a nice Sunday.
    DT

    Also, if you you do not wish to be bothered by the @ feature - don't jump every time someone rings the bell.

    Just ignore it, or check to see if It's worth your time.

    I actually don't mind the mass @ - It's kind of a compliment, to be thought of like that.

    Guess the call out @ is a compliment as well; If I bother some nincompoop enough for him to @ me and I don't come running - I win the INTERNETZ!
