I think that the at sign, (@), followed by a username should provide a link to that user's profile on forums since it works that way on regular comments, and I don't like having to go to their profile, and copy/pasting their url. It would be so much easier if you could just post “@User”.

You can also just press their username on the left side of the screen to go to their profile page.

That's an even easier workaround. No support.

No, that's not what I mean. What if I wanted to link my alt account on forums, but they weren't on that topic? I'd just do “@bcsi102”.

Full support, I have wanted this for a long time. Right now you have to do “scratch.mit.edu/users/whoever” but it would be so much easier to just do @whoever.

I must admit, writing down the entire profile link is a tedious process, I've been using the forums for a very long time now and I still find it annoying.

Support, it would make linking to users much easier. (Does the ST even update the forms now? I don't know.)

Whoops. I didn't mean to do that.

Support! It takes so much longer to actually get the url!

copy + paste

Trying to find the person is equally annoying.

Support. It's a habit (thx, Discord) for me to @mention people without quoting them. Too bad it doesn't actually do anything beside look aesthetic.

Bump!

Support! You can @people in comments and things like that, why not this? Quoting them wouldn't add an @ (or would it?) but it would be nice to click it. Also, would it notify them if you @e'd them? I would think not because that could lead to SPAM

Yeah… people would just be like @User, @User, @User, etc.

Hey @robloxdude10! Do you want to do something @robloxdude10? Want to make a video game @robloxdude10? @robloxdude10 @robloxdude10 @robloxdude10 @robloxdude10 @robloxdude10? Huh huh?

Yeah, it would be annoying.

I would think maybe It would notify you if:

1. You had already posted in that thread/followed it (to prevent making a new topic and just spamming it)
2. It would only notify you ONCE (so if I did @robloxdude10 @robloxdude10 @robloxdude10 you would get one message)
3. If they edit it you wouldn't get notified.
4. You couldn't get notified on that topic again until you read your mail
5. You could disable it

Or ya know, just don't notify you.

It would also be nice if the PizzaAddict4Life wrote: was clickable too, and it had and @ sign or something.

Yeah, I'd just go with that.

One of the reasons why sending a notification when someone quotes you is rejected is because the forums are programmed in such a way that implementing it would be impossible.
Having read that, I'm asking: would this suggestion be possible?

Yes. Well, probably. If they do it in regular comments, I'm sure they can do it here.

It is in comments, why not here too?

Of course it would be, although they might have to fork postmarkup.
