    So I'm loving mentions.

    Quote notifications, on the other hand, I'm not such a fan of. Generally speaking what happens is this: I see a subscribed thread has been posted in, so open the thread and read the reply. Then I have to go to my notifications to dismiss the notification that someone has quoted me.

    A way to turn quote notifications off would be nice. Or, alternatively, visiting the thread in question deactivating the notification.

    In a related matter, I hadn't realised that people use the forum quote feature so much. I just copy/paste into Quick Reply if I want to quote someone.

    I think the quote notification is helpful, but I can definitely see how it could get annoying. I quote people even when what I'm quoting is one post above.

    Anyway, awesome stuff.

    It depends on how much you post I'd say. Taure is someone that would get quoted a lot imo.

    Us not so much.
