I haven't been able to find anything, but it'd be cool if someone were to create a pinging/highlighting notification system. I find that a large percentage of members prefer to use "@user" instead of quoting. People are also used to being able to tag others on many of the various social media sites, and it only makes sense that something like this should be developed for 3.1. It can't be too complicated considering everything you need is already there, with the notifications on quoting, but I can't really say - hence the request.

It is more complicated than you may think. But considering the requests someone really should do that.
Maybe me...? :P

But be aware, with a REALLY big board with many users it can lead to slower loading times or something like that, we'll see.
If you have a specific extension request and you are willing to pay for, you can write me a PM.

Ahh, that doesn't surprise me. When it's back up a link would be appreciated!

Haha, that's why I was careful with my wording ;] Mhm, it would be a very useful feature. Well, if you think you're up for the task then why not?! I see, how big would you class "really big"..? I've got around 1,000 members, but to most that would usually be considered small.

Hahaha, really, hopefully you will have like 100000 members (if you're famous).

If you have a forum with 27000000 users, you should have like 400 servers hahahah

Okay guys, I am getting closer!
I can tell you that I really will release an extension for this (:

I don't know if I do anything stupid wich can be done better (I have heard some things with different suggestions for this one), but... if it works the way I want it to work, everything is good.

So, be prepared!

I'll use cool plugins for autosuggest and username finding, I'll modify them heavy for my needs, and I have many things planned.
Just wanted to say I am on this an show you a bit of it. It will take some more time :P

Visually, you've nailed it. :)

Can you use phpBB's functions for username finding? There are some functions utilized at the live member search (try typing something in the Username field): memberlist.php?mode=searchuser
