    If you want to get someone's attention to a specific post you're writing, you can tag them. To tag them, you simply use the @ and type their username (without any spaces) after it. It will show up in their alerts, thus bringing their attention to the post.

    Go ahead and give it a try!

    Yep, that's the way it's supposed to work. If I tag you, you get an alert. If I quote you, you get an alert. If I tag AND quote you, you get one alert. :)
