@mentions feature on the Help Community

Hello Help Community,

Today, I'd like to let you know about a new feature that was just released for our Help Community: @mentions

How does it work?
It’s very straightforward and similar to how @mention works on social media platforms. In the text field, when you type “@”, a box appears that shows all the users who have participated in the topic you are posting to. You select a user, and his username will appear in the post. Once published that username is shown as a link (directing to the user profile). The mentioned user will receive an email, stating he has been mentioned in a post with a link to that post.

Next to typing “@” , you can also activate the @mention functionality by clicking on the “@” icon that has been added to the text editor.

If you want to mention a user who is not active in a thread; just type his username and after 3 characters all usernames that begin with those letters will appear in alphabetical order.

When will the mentions feature return to Soundcloud? For years we all used mentions with @Mathis to call our friends' attention to specific tracks, sets, or playlists, and randomly a month or so ago that feature went away. Why?? Now I only get notifications if someone follows me. I miss getting notifications from other users using the mentions feature. Is that ever coming back?? I miss it!!
