New board feature alert - you can @ each other!
Similar to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram - you can now @ other CO+K members on the board when you're posting a new topic or replying. For now, just type @ followed by their CO+K id and it'll send them a notification.
So for example, I want to say thanks to Tom for coding this up. Hey @tom - thanks for the new feature!
The user id is the bit that appears at the end of the URL to your profile and you can find it for others by clicking on their photo and then copy and pasting the name after users/ - http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/users/catmorley so mine is just catmorley (don't forget the @ if you want to mention me). At the moment, this only works for members who have set an ID, so if they still have numbers at the end of the profile link it won't work yet.
And if you haven't set your user ID yet, you can do it here (just remember it's permanent, so make it good):
Cool I think ! May liven things up a bit
@catmorley yay notifications for boards, will get this chatting thing going!!
Yay, so glad you like the idea. They won't do anything yet but notifications are coming.
But first, you two need to set your usernames before someone else nicks your nicknames
Helpful new update: once you've updated your username (http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/profile/username) it will appear under your photo, making it easy for people to @ you and for you to find the correct username to @. Thanks @tom
Do you think it's clear enough?
@catmorley wont let me register my username
Doh, what does it say? I'll get @tom to take a look when he's back home from lunch!
@catmorley the page just doesnt come up after you submit your username
MischeviousRaven - that's no good, @tom's on the case!
@catmorley Funky Chicken!!!
Alrighty, it should be fixed - go set your usernames!!!
@catmorley Think its worked this time
@MischievousRaven I think it did! Yay
