So, I come on here quite frequently and post a few times a day. Then I may not come on for a few days and I have 20 notifications. Generally it's just someone replying to a thread I commented on so I will generally just skip it if I am real busy. However a few weeks later just randomly scrolling through an older topic, I see that someone quoted or replied to something I said. Do you reply? No, because that was a month ago. However if we had a tag system that notified you someone "mentioned" you in a topic, I would be able to see it and reply. This is actually the only forum out of 10 I am a member of that doesn't have the tag system.
For any of you who may not know what the tag system is, it's where you can "tag" someone in a topic by using the @ (at sign). So if someone went, "hello @T.C." It would notify me someone was talking about me or wants my attention on a topic/thread/post they responded to.
