Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14 Better tracking for invites for our own internal metrics.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14 Group creation is disabled for nonadmins, and nonofficial groups are no longer listed in group search. You can still get to all nonofficial groups by using their URI, and if you're in them you'll still be in them and have them listed in your dropdown.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14 Some backend changes in how we handle builds. This just makes us happier and doesn't reflect on you at all, except it was the reason we had that hiccup when deploying.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14 Oh, I guess you can now see the people you're a fan of in a nice little list at top left. That's pretty cool.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Whats the little person icon next to the notifications icon?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14@asnaseer @myininaya is what I'm talking about.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14Mentions yield links, and notifications. You'll find some new settings in your notification settings regarding who you get notified about when they mention you.

shadowfiend

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14Most notably, you can limit it so you only find out if someone you're a fan of mentions you, which I anticipate some superstars like say @myininaya, @amistre64 and @satellite73 will probably want to use.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14Oh look, a slight issue with our parser hehe. Also worth mentioning, this is mostly the work of @farmdawgnation with some collaboration from @mattfeury , design all by @darthsid as usual, and the fact that it's not superincredibly buggy is thanks to @msayer3 . Enjoy!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I guess the @ mention only works if you specify the full user name after it  does it handle prefix matching, e.g. will this work for myininaya: @myin?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So some notes on the matching for @ mentions... You can either have the follow with a colon or a space. So @asnaseer: will work but @asnaseer. won't, because periods are valid pieces of usernames. We'll be working on a way to try and streamline that, if possible in the future.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right, to change your ping settings just go to "Settings" and click "Notification Settings"... you'll find all the controls for whose mentions will trigger a notification there.
