Figured we should have a sticky for something like this, and luckily I actually have a big announcement for the first post.

The site is now trying out a "mentions" feature. All info can be found here: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/6-gamefaqs-announcements/74382667

Basically adding "@" (without quotation marks) before a users name will send a notification to that user, letting them know they have been mentioned. For example, if you needed to contact or summon the board owner or leader, you'd use this:

@BlacknGold86
@KeyBlade999

Any abuse of this feature on this board to antagonize/irritate ANY user (regardless of if they're a member), will not be tolerated, but don't be shy about using it. Just don't be a dick <_<

I have a few other things I'd like to mention, but I don't have the time atm.

If you have any questions, comments, etc. pertaining to improving the board or even about the board itself feel free to post it here.

I'm also going to be using it to spitball random ideas to you guys for feedback. I may be the board owner, but it wouldn't be much of a community board without a community, so I very much value any input you may have.

The mention feature, I don't know why should I use it. I can simply contact a user directly by searching him. Is there any better use of it?

Eh, I only used it seriously once, to "summon" someone that forgot about a game topic they made.

I think K it's mostly just for fun, but until there's an option to ignore mentions I see them being used for some serious shenanigans.

It's useful for bringing certain topics to certain users' attention. This is especially true if you want to bring in several users (otherwise takes time), are ignoring or otherwise declining to receive PMs, or generally just solves the problem wherein most users put PMs on low priority and don't read or respond immediately.

I've received a few PMs in the last few days from people wanting to become a leader.

We don't really need a second leader at the moment, but once we hit 150-175 members how would you guys feel about voting in new leaders instead of me just picking one?

Also, this is a long... LONG way off, but I'm considering capping the member limit to 500 to fit in with the theme of the board. Much of our member list is inactive anyway, and it adds a feeling of membership I think.

Much of our member list is inactive anyway, so that would be when I start losing inactive users in favor of new/active users, but we could always just keep the default 1000 cap as well.

As I said this is an extremely long way off, but what do you guys think?

500 sounds like too much to me. But it's your board, so whatever you want, you do.
