Today we've added the ability to change which users can Mention you. In order to access this option, navigate to your Privacy Settings under My Settings. Here is a direct link: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/user/settings_privacy

With this new option, you can choose to either continue receiving Mentions from all users, restrict the system to Friends only, allow all Verified Users, or to simply turn them off completely. Note that regardless of your setting, the Mention will always show up in the posting user's post. The only difference now is whether or not you receive the accompanying Notification.
"Um, let's face it, you'd be better off staying at the Hilton."

We made another change to Mentions. Now, when you are Mentioned in a quote, you will no longer receive another Notification about it. The Mention will still show up in your list, though it will be noted with a quotation mark icon so you know it was just a quote.
