This might be a silly question, but I can't find a solution. Is there a way to notify someone in my answer/question? I know there is a way in comments by writing
@SomeOne, but I would like to do something similar in an answer.
I have found only this, it is copied from tex.se, since this is the site, where I have the problem (although I hope the solution might be global, if there is a solution).
Replying in comments
The owner of the post you're commenting on will always be notified of your comment. If you are replying to someone else who has previously commented on the same post, mention their username: @peter and @PeterSmith will both notify a previous commenter named “Peter Smith”.
It is generally sufficient to mention only the first name of the user whose comment you are replying to, e.g. @ben or @marc. However you may need to be more specific if three people named Ben replied in earlier comments, by adding the first character of the last name, e.g. @benm or @benc Spaces are not valid in comment reply names, so don't use @peter smith, always enter it as @peters or @petersmith.
If the user you're replying to has no natural first name and last name, simply enter enough characters of the name to make it clear who you are responding to. Three is the minimum, so if you're replying to Fantastico, enter @fan, @fant, or @fantastic.
You can use the same method to notify any editor of the post, or – if this is the case – to the ♦ moderator who closed the question.
But this does not say anything about my problem.
- Is there a way to notify someone from stack community in my answer/question?
- If so, how to do it?
I have had a question and no one answered it. I have finally find a solution and would like to post it, since others might find that useful. But in my answer I have used something in someone else's answer in different question and I would like them to know I have mentioned them.
I have used
feature-request tag because I do not know if this feature exists.
