    Suggestions for Mention System.

    Well, I was thinking about the Mentions we use to contact each other are being used to other proposes by some users, like spamming, being annoying, etc.

    And I thought about that, and possibly implement these few things on this System:


    • Every time you quote other post and have Mention on it, don't count to the Mentioned user.
    • When you quote a user, automatically you mention him, having a fast contact each other on the thread. (didn't like so much but is useful if you see better).
    • Have a limit for Mention in each post (like 5 or 10)
    • If possible, have limiter for each user mentioning the same user (I spam mention Dave, so after I do it 5/10 times repeatedly will send a message for Staff analyses the situation, if pointless, receive warn/ban.)

    That's it, if I think in one more to be added I will edit.

    Here's the features that the Mention mod can do.

    [DBTech] Advanced User Tagging v2 (vB4) - vBulletin.org Forum

    See if what you are suggesting is possible to do.

    Yeah that would be good. So we get a notification when someone quotes our post.

    Only agree with the first one:
    Every time you quote other post and have Mention on it, don't count to the Mentioned user.
    that's it.

    To be honest I think the first, second and third are important and should be added.
    Why would a user mention so many people? I bet he didn't even talk to the half he mentioned...
    When you quote obviously want to talk to the user, have sense add a Mention in quote, if possible.

    Most of my mentions (95%) are reported posts.
    making a limit to mention when necessary wouldnt be too well
    (applies to 3rd and 4th suggestions you made)
    Sometimes quotes used as examples in stickies and other special posts...

    It's common Mods get Mentions to facility their job on the website.
    The limit I said would be the same person mention the same user repeatedly, but I didn't know you get so many from the same users.
    And quote should mention only if have a name on it, you can put quotes tags without names too, or use the code tags.
