    Usually when you post on the forum, you’ll see a user’s username rather than their profile name.. You might not see a difference, but here is an example:

    I want to mention Mactacular in a post.. His username shows up as Mac. So i would do this: @Mac

    But the problem is, the @ function doesn’t work unless you use his PROFILE name.

    I’ve changed the entire site and made the forum display PROFILE names.

    So now, mac will be shown as Mactacular on the forum, and @Mactacular mentions him and gives him an update.

    Makes it easier to mention people and it actually work.

    If you post something on the forum, and want me to see it, make sure you write @admin somewhere there, especially when asking me a question. I may not get to every post (even though I do try to) and it will help if you guys need questions answered. It’s like messaging me, without messaging me ;-)

    Damn @admin your really ontop of things. Ever think this site will need moderators for the forums?

    Absolutely. I have a lot to do and it would be helpful with moderators but at this time it’s small enough for me to handle myself. I’m at work most of the time but can update and edit as needed from here. Once we grow a bit more i’ll be asking who wants to be a moderator and make decisions then.

    Makes so much more sense than people having to go back to the person’s profile.

    I ended up changing my name to match as I didn’t want the site to show my name. @admin good fix.
