Hi Mauricio,

Would it be be possible to have GZ pick up user "mentions" and notify that user that they have been tagged?

Quite often some-one will mention that (for example) @stevebiddle or @johnr knows the answer to a problem....

Cheers, Matt.

/\@(\w+\b)/ig

Don't ask me if it works on ASP but it works in Python..

Matches a word of one or more characters between an @ and the end of the first word. The i at the end makes it case insensitive and the g makes it match more than one.

When run on "testing for @danielfaulknor in a thread" it returns "danielfaulknor"

When run on the OP, it returns "stevebiddle" and "johnr"

danielfaulknor: /\@(\w+\b)/ig


It also catches "freitasm@geekzone.co.nz" (matches geekzone). Ideally it would ignore if there's a period that is followed by another character different than space too...

Thanks @hairy1 for the suggestion and @danielfaulknor for the code. It worked on ASP VBScript as /\@(\w+\b)

Summoning @johnr, did you get this message?

Thanks very much @freitasm for the new feature! I think @sbiddle and @scottpalmer are tied up with a serious function today!
