Tagging On CE Has Been Improved!

CEans,

We introduced the tagging feature on CE a few days ago and it had its own limitations. But today, we're happy to launch improved tagging that works on usernames with spaces and also through your status messages and profile posts. Tagging is incredibly useful feature to attract other CEan's attention and automatically notify them through alerts.

Keep tagging!

For The New CEans:-

You can tag any other CEan on CE, provided you know their user name. For example, if you want to tag CEan Durga; you can do so by appending '@' symbol in front of the username. Ex: durga . Our system will start suggesting probable usernames to make the whole process easier.

If you have questions or feedback, post it in this thread 😀 ! Happy Tagging!

^^ They are different usernames. I think such alias names can't be used, as there is no way of tracking such names..

What is the use of using aliases? We can't do that in any other platforms like twitter or facebook either.

I find this feature really useful at times. godfather ash MaRo gohm Sada Reya (mostly for bringing people's attention to the threads.)

By the way, tagging now works almost everywhere you'd typically expect it to work. In new threads, post replies, profile posts (on your and someone else's profile), updating your status messages etc. 😀

I'm happy to see that a lot of our regular members and also new members are actively using the tagging feature. We'll continue to roll out new features ( I repeat, 2012 is going to be special 😀 ). You have a sub-section "Site Related Questions & Answers" where you can post your questions/feedback etc. and help improve CE. 👍

Taking cue from durga, there should be a facility of making nick names. Like The_Big_K should assign himself "Biggie" as a nick name. This because many people call him "Biggie". It should be flexible (member should be able to change it at will)and not hardwired in server as The DOB feature.

AbraKaDabra: Lets be pioneer of this feature. Even Twitter and FB does not have it!

The_Big_K . Great work there.
The_Big_K :Nice feature 😀
While tagging, the system is showing the suggestions below the post. Is it possible to display those suggestions below the line where we are typing?

It should be possible; but could be a limitation of the post editor. Will see if showing the suggestions next to the cursor looks good.

By the way, you can auto-complete the suggestion as soon as it's highlighted in the suggestions box by hitting the 'Enter' key. 😀
