Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Computer Dummy needs help

How do you guys respond in the manner shown below using an @ sign and then the name?  Told you I was a dummy.

Thanks, Springram

    @Springram you are correct. Just add @ then the name.

    for those who don't know, by doing that you alert the person you mentioned them. Great if you need someone's attention.

    Here is a visual guide:

    When you "@" someone ( @Springram )

    They get a notification that will appear on their forum page at the top right.

    The number of notifications with be shown. If you click on "Notifications" it will take you to this page:

    On this page, you see who "notified" you and whether they commented on a thread you started, mentioned you, or directly messaged you(Private message, PM).

    You should get a notification that I commented on your thread as opposed to 2 since I mentioned you as well. Make sure there is no space between the "@" and the name. If the whole name appears as a hyperlink in your post, you did it right(presuming you spelled the name correctly).

    You can also accomplish this by highlighting and "copying" the person you want to contact then "pasting" the name next to the "@" in your post. The "no space" part still applies.

    @Eggcelsior-since you provided the details, Do you know how to clear the "notifications log" that accumulates over time?  Haven't figured that out but haven't spent much time trying either.

    The only way I know is to click on the links in the notification screen to take you to the mention. If there is another way, I'd like to know. 

    Sorry mis-read. I thought on how to bring the count down. 
    :(

    I don't know if you can. I believe that it just remains in perpetuity similar to the comments log.

    I did a little snooping around and could not find a way to delete the notifications either. According to a post on the Vanilla web-site, a "delete" option (i.e., x icon) is supposed to appear when you hover your mouse over a notification. I tried that and got nothing.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    I bet it is a function the webmaster has to "authorize".
  • caneggercanegger Posts: 510
    If you click on the notification in your profile and then click on something else to get back out , do they not go away then? Mine have.
  • No, mine don't. As @tazcrash said doing that does reduce the notification count.

    I think it only reduces it because it shows only so many per page. Might have more then one page so would have to scroll through

    If its a question being asked or someone wanting my input and they tag me with the @ symbol like you did i get a notification. So I know to Goto your post. Otherwise if you just put the persons name they won't know unless they read your post. I go through most of them but today I was away from the computer so I don't explore as mucho when I just have my phone.
