Tag posters in topic

I have a request from one of my users - to be able to "tag" other board members similar to Facebook and Twitter. This seems like a good idea. I searched the Mod fora but did not find a mod that does this. Does anyone know if there is a mod that already does this?

TIA.

"tag" can mean more than the world may ever know. Imagine I wouldn't use Facebook and Twitter and give more details on all the things you expect.

Good point.

They want the ability, when they create a topic, to select other board members as being "tagged". When the topic is submitted, the "tagged" members will then receive a notification that they have been "tagged", by whom, with a link to the topic.

  1. Is this meant for one time only or should it be permanent (like those selected users are then subscribed to the topic)?
  2. How does that harmonize with not being spammed (it needs at least a new option for every user saying "Allow others to tag me")?

Thanks for the response.
a. My users would only want a one time notice, I believe.
b. I think just an option whether to receive "tagging" notifications or not, like PM notifications, would suffice.
