Short answer: no.

You can put the '@' sign in front of their username, but they will not get an email about it.

Just a note - the "@" will only generate an email if the person tagged has turned on the notification email in their settings

@falcondeal: so is there a way to tag them activly so they will see it? I don't usually do non deals woot discussions.

@theoneill555: for deal.woot only... right?

@philosopherott: Not that I know of, otherthan coming into deals.woot and @ tagging them then providing a link to the woot.com discussion.

@falcondeal: Correct - @ tagging is only on deals.woot

On the flip side, woot proper has PMs and deals doesn't

@theoneill555: But PMs do not send an email saying, "Hey you have a PM!" either.

And not everyone subscribes to getting email when they are mentioned, either...

I don't get an email even if someone does it in deals.woot. Oh well.

@tippypaws: Click on "Your Account" next to your user name. Then check under "Email Preferences" to see if you are subscribed!

@inkycatz: I tried to tag you in the discussion for the Gunnar glasses along with others and there was no link to go with the tag. That is how this question came to be.

@philosopherott: Yup! Fortunately we've got the product rep in the thread itself to provide additional information. I hope it helps you out!

@philosopherott: Does Dr. Who have anything to do with your bowtie Friday?
