    Is there any way to program the mentiom function that you use the @ to mention the person but once the post is made you don't see the @?

    It's a little thing but it drives me nuts seeing the @s

    It's like hashtags...
    Why? Don't sweat the little things.

    I'm not sweating, just asking a question

    You know the person has been mentioned because it shows up in blue and you can click on it. the @ visible isn't necessary

    It's not annoying enough to justify spending money on it...

    Unless it's cheap, LOL

    Pro function does have some neat functions though

    I could probably hack it out but it would just get lost if you ever upgrade/reinstall.

    That said, I don't mind seeing the @ signs, it makes it clear when someone wanted to call attention to a person in the post.

    Is it possible to change the mention code to go from @ to #, just to troll @loki some more...?
