    User tagging at CrazyEngineers has just got better! Those who don't know about it - it's a system that lets you send an alert (+email) to any member of CrazyEngineers and get their attention to the discussion.

    Until now, the system only showed the members in alphabetical order. So you'd end up seeing even the most inactive members in suggestions. That wasn't very useful.

    The new update shows the most active members (aka the ones you'd expect to tag) at the top of suggestions list. So even if we have several members with usernames starting with 'Abhishek'; the @ < username suggestions would now show @Abhishek Rawal first (provided he's active enough on CE). Give it a try, people!

    Special Credits: @Sanyam Khurana - for suggesting the feature.

    -------New Members ----------

    You can tag any user by first typing "@" sign, and then typing the username of the member. For example: @Harshad Italiya .

    @SarathKumar Chandrasekaran We longed for it more than you did. It was a tough job tagging you. :) Now typing '@sar' fetches your name on the top!

    Can someone please tag my name? I don't seem to get any 'Tag' Notifications.

    Yes, notification for tags is activated. Been working till a few days back. I didn't fiddle with my settings either. Promise! :mrgreen:

    There was no tagging notification. Only reply notification.

    That's how the system works. Since both the notifications would lead you to the same destination, the system sends only higher priority notification. Test in some other forum or thread which you have not subscribed to.

    Yet another request in that case, would someone be kind to tag my name in a random thread?
