Something new I just discovered

I just found another cool feature about this software.

If you want to get someone's attention with a post, you can "tag" them. They have to be a registered member to get an alert.

It's similar to Twitter where you tag by sing the "@" symbol in front of their names.

If I wanted to tag some people that we have new fonts I might say....

Hey @Karen#1 and @I told you I was trouble , there are new fonts!

Karen & Trouble will get an alert that they've been tagged in a post.

Once you type the "@"then start typing the users name and a list will pop up for you to select the correct member.

I've not had the time as yet to explore all the new features, but the board looks great!

I see though that we've got the ability to bookmark posts we love, making it simple to find them again in the future. That will definitely be helpful.

This new software is the bee's knees, @Emma. What I noticed is that when you quote a post, your post just shows the first few lines of the quoted post. Such an improvement over the whole dang thing showing up! Plus, you can click a link to see the whole quote if you want. Me like!!! Good job!!!

Yes this is definitely an improvement. But guess what else I found?.....

You can highlight parts of a person's post and it gives you the option to just quote that part, instead of quoting the entire post. You used to have to quote everything and then go and edit out any parts of the post you didn't want quoted. Now it's much easier.

You can highlight a sentence from poster A (and click "+quote"), then highlight a sentence from poster B (and click "+quote") and "insert quotes" into your post & they will be attributed correctly.
