They did this on pedlar, I liked it.

so #mixmixi would then get you an unsolicited PM.. guess it's okay as long as your username isn't related to a deal or retailer..

I was thinking of a notification rather than an email. But yes good point. Wondering how many people use retailers name as their username? I mean if you're meant to be tagged, then it shouldn't be doing anything with retailers as far as someone is putting a # before the exact username of yours, right?

It might be a good update to the site. One or two might abuse it and mention people just to get their deals voted up.

I've seen the odd name like ASDADeals or something random like that. none come to mind exactly.. think the @username would be a good feature.. as @oUkTuRkEyIII said has been used by other sites.. guess the issue would arrise when comical/adult items are posted..
Though that could be editable by tick box in your profile to enable tagging or not

Thanks for the suggestion. I vaguely remember something being requested a while ago so i'll see if I can get some feedback on that request. I'll update back when I can.
