New mention by username plugin! (similar to Facebook)

New Mention Plugin!

I've just installed a plugin that lets you guys mention others here by tags and they will receive a notification about it, kind of like on Facebook. All you do is while typing a post, mention another by username using the @ character first, and as you type their username, a drop down box will appear. Select the person you want to mention and they will automatically be wrapped with the mention tags like this.

Code: Select all

[mention]username[/mention]
Make sure to spell their username correctly or it will not work and they will not receive a notification. It is not case sensitive. The drop down looks like this:

I'm gonna test it out now and mention some of you here, to see if it works. :)

What do you guys think? You like this feature? This way others will know when you've mentioned them and want them to know about it.
