Profile [2]
« on: November 06, 2014, 09:20:48 AM »
This may be dumb but I noticed recently the there is a number in brackets next to my profile in the header. A week ago, I noticed it was Profile [1] now it's Profile [2].



Any ideas of what it means?

The number is unread mentions.

You can mention people like this: @dwnthehatch
You'll get alerted that I mentioned you, and that number represents the unread mentions you have.

You can clear it by visiting the mentions page within your profile (click your profile, then hover over the Profile Info link and select the Mentions link).

I have plans to make it easier, but free time has been very limited lately :(

That wasn't dumb.
This is dumb:
How do I mention someone, just add an "@" before their name?

yes. type the @ and then start typing their name.
Autocomplete should popup and you can select the correct person.

I'm doing it wrong. Help?

I can't find a Profile Info link to hover over, after clicking my profile.
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

Once logged in and going to Profile, do you see this?...





Although, yours probably doesn't show 'dazzo'      ;D

Dude, relax your chicken.

I appreciate the assist, dazzo. Now backing away from heavy machinery as well.

What seems weird is that I'd re-visited all those threads already.

yeah, the software isn't that smart :(
the only way to clear them is by visiting that mention page
