How to alert a member you've posted about them

or posed a question to them, quoted them, etc. One of the reasons I try to use an @ sign before another member's name is-if they've set up their preferences to be alerted by a pop-up box, or via email, they'll get that alert when referenced specifically by user name. They will also see a red number to the right of their inbox on the right side of the banner by their name.
So, type an @ followed by the first few letters of their user name and that name will appear in a drop down box; tap it to select, the whole name will appear in the dialogue box. (No space after the @sign)
My apologies if everyone in the world knew this, but it took me weeks, weeks I tell you, to figure this out and I had help!

    @Twojgrams, Thanks for sharing! Along the same lines, once you've done that, you can click on the @ and their name, it takes you to their profile, and if you click on the "message" you can send them a message that not everyone can read as well. It took ME a while to figure that one out as well. :)
