What Are Mentions?


If you want to get a specific user’s attention, the best way to do that is usually with a “mention”, a concept popularised by social media sites like Twitter.

To mention a user on Politiforum, you start by typing the @ character immediately followed by the first letters of that someone’s username. If you’re posting in an existing topic, Politiforum will intelligently push active topic participants to the top of the auto-completion list.
