@ someone help

I do not know how to get someone's attention by the "@ someone" method.
Would someone please leave instructions here so that I can use this method in the future?
I know of at least one other person that recently mentioned that he did not know how to do this, so I guess I'm not the only one left behind. :)
Thank you :P

I believe that you place "mention" in brackets []no quotes, then the username, then [/mention] in the body of the message. I'm not sure what happens in order for the person to be notified. I don't use this very often. It would display in the message like @ljs123

Method 1: Type @ followed immediately (no spaces) by starting their username. A drop-down will appear with choices. Click the one you want.

Method 2: Put their username between [mention] and [/mention], again with no spaces.
