No but if you cant find the thread here's the link

If you are looking for a thread try the search option, the extended search gives you additional options to help narrow down the field.  Another option is do a google search using this code -> site:beatlesbible.com/forum <- and then the word or words you are looking for. Upon clicking on a search result the forum search takes you to the beginning of the thread whereas google search takes you to the post.

There is additional stuff to it all but thats what i know, after that it gets too intricate for me.

Thanks so much, mean!  That's such valuable advice that I'm bookmarking it.  I really appreciate that.  For a mean guy you're pretty cool.

Use the @ sign and then begin typing the username of the person you want to contact (it can be case sensitive so be mindful of capital letters), it will bring it a list of the available posters so for yourself its @Pet. . .  which brings @PeterWeatherby.

If you use the Rich Text editor for posting on the forum, the auto-fill works for doing @ notifications. The auto-fill doesn't work if you are using the HTML editor.

I am trying to figure out why I don't get some notifications. The person's post looks right with the @ and my username in blue, etc., but I don't get the notification at the top of my page.

Right now, I have notifications from Kite, Joe, Ron Nasty, ISWD, parlance, Zig, ScrambledEggs, meanmistermustard, and Bungalow Bob. Are all of you using the Rich Text editor?

I am using the HTML editor. I am testing all the varieties of putting in my username to see what comes out in the wash: @Ahhh Girl @ahhh girl @Ahhh Girl @ahhh-girl @Ahhh-Girl And, I'm thinking that "preview" doesn't always show you what you are going to get. I learned the dash thing because I adore the HTML editor because it works better for most things I need to do, but the @ thing doesn't auto-fill. So to notify a more-than-one-word-username-person I have to use dashes. For example to @ Kite I have to type mr(dash)kite(dash)3 @Mr. Kite

EDIT: well, no, only @Ahhh Girl worked. I still don't know why I don't get some notifications.

I don't get some notificstions sometimes either.

To answer your question I also use the HTML editor. All of you with different names then the ones you signed up with should feel special if I @ you right! a-hard-days-night-george-10

I know. I know. You can thank @trcanberra for my name change. It is a long story...and a darn fun/funny one. I treasure it. That one little clue in that post still gets to me.

I know the John sucks part, but not the story. And I've always been interested in where you got cbatcu

It is better if most folks don't know. It is a closely guarded secret.

Lots of banknotes, small denominations, brown paper bag and the story is yours.

Umm - kidding :)

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 This is the first thing I thought of when I read your post.

You keep all your money in a big, brown bag inside a zoo. What a thing to do!

I wish I were something close to being a rich man :)

I won't go into the finances as I know a few folks here are even worse off than me just now - but it's touch and go over the next few months.

Umm - sorry for going off-topic, I promise not to do it again (today at least).

I might as well write this out here more plainly. To @ me, type cbatcu after the @.

Anyone who has changed usernames since joining the forum has something similar going on. If you want to @ Ron Nasty, type mja6758 after the @.

Oh and you can't edit a post to mention someone if you want to mention someone after you make a post, you have to make another post.

 

Also you can't mention someone more than once in a post

Why did this feature stop working for me? I haven't been able to do it in several months.

What do you mean? Is it that you can't mention anyone, or that you can't receive mentions? When I first joined, I found I was opted out of mentions-- it's a thing in your account settings. 

@Expert Textpert 

I just mentioned you. Do you feel @tted? 

Wot ye lookin at? Half of what I say is meaningless... but I say it just to fill the other half with Beatlerubbish. Too fab four you, sorry

I am not opted out and I do receive mentions. Early last year I think I was able to mention others as well, but the feature went away. I have asked about it before but it was not resolved.

If you quote a post that has a mention, does it work?

Let's see. Apparently so.

@Starr Shine?

It works on my iPhone but not my MacBook at home or my Dell at work.

I'm not sure what would happen if I copy from the Mac. Right now I am "in bed" as my location specifies.

I get the mention notification again if someone quotes a post with a old mention in it.
