@mention people on dev.to
Jochem Stoel Apr 14
Can we @mention other people here on dev.to in articles and/or comments? I did not find this. If this is currently not a feature then I would like to suggest it.
- Enables people to directly reference the post or profile when quoting somebody. Often I am writing the introduction to an article inspired by something someone said or people debated.
- (assuming we are notified when mentioned) Enables you to invite someone to the conversation or bring a post or comment to the attention of somebody without sending them a private message. Hey! This article is super relevant. @jochemstoel you should read this.
- A few more reasons to add this feature.
Following folks on dev.to has always been key to customizing the kind of content you're more likely to see in your feed and notifications, but now that we have DEV Connect I feel like there is even more we can do by following folks with shared interests and willingness to be helpful.
