    .... you wanted to ask a general question, and wanted it to be a public note [so that everyone could benefit from the answers], but wanted to direct it to a specific person so they would get a "ding".....

    Say that I wanted to ask Dave54 a question about a fish disease. If I made a general post under that topic, Dave54 might never see it.

    I could PM him, but then no one but me would benefit from his answers.

    Or I could PM him and let him know that I made a post that required his attention....

    Yup, you could tag a member in the post by simply typing the @ symbol before their name - eg @Mmathis

    Most members will have their notifications set up so that they get an alert when they have been tagged in a post. If they have disabled this function then it work work though.

    Hope this helps! (y)
