    Hi Ken,

    I seem to understand all the options of the forum.
    But don't understand why the option Mention?
    What it does and how to use it?

    Mention is quite useful. It allows someone to mention another member in a post and they will get a notification that they were mentioned so they will know to check that post. For example if I say @Robyn can explain why she changed her member name. She will get a notification and know that she was mentioned and will look at this post. :)

    Hi Robyn,

    Good to see it worked. :) When editing there is an icon "@" to add a mention or you can use the Ctrl + M shortcut.

    Thanks Ken. I went and tried before I saw your message and made a botch up, and then worked it out. Pity there's no edit button, or a delete as in the site that has just been deleted.

    Also when you follow people do they get an email notification? Is that the same as making someone a friend? Rob :)

    You should have an edit button for 30 minutes after a post.

    I'm not sure about all the cases someone will get a notification.

    Hover your mouse over a post and at the bottom of the post your options will appear. Let me know if edit isn't available.

    Thanks,
