The [@] tag (aka way better post tagging)

This update introduces the [@] tag, which drastically improves the tagging system.

  • You can tag people from within a post using this system, not just a reply.

  • Here's the new syntax:


    This will alert Moonray to the thread.

    [@]Moonray:hey check out my thread[/@]

    This will alert Moonray to the thread but will also include the message you give here.

    [@]Moonray,Count Dooku,chiefsonny[/@]

    This will alert all three of these people to the thread.

    [@]Moonray,Count Dooku,chiefsonny:check this out![/@]

    This will alert all three of these people to the thread and will also include your message in the alert.

  • Much like other systems, GTX0 will attempt to figure out who you mean when you put in a name -- putting in "KM8" or "Cetasaurus" will send an alert to the right account either way.


    Anything inside the [@][/@] tag will be erased from the post as soon as it does what you need it to do.

    Neat - I like it more than the previous method.

    I love it. Knowing how often I use the previous method on Discord, I can only hope it stuck around, if only for the sake of familiarity.
