    Yes - in the UserCP under Settings (right at the bottom!)

    Getting rid of the "@" in a displayed post after the event would be good though.
    Yeh it could be slow.

    I liked having the @ myself as I thought it made it a little more obvious what happened. Thoughts?

    I don't mind the @ at the front - though can we not auto-add the semi-colon if the @ prefix is used with a valid username?

    Btw... shouldn't we merge this and the "@Username" thread now?

I'm of the opinion that any mentioned username should be tagged automatically (and retrospectively) without a twitterism in front of it.
    Automatic tagging sounds a good idea until someone takes the name iPad, FOIA or ID10T (apologies if I've mentioned any real usrs, but I'm not off to check!)

    Prefixing with @ is good idea to stop auto tagging by accident.

    As for the semi-colon on the end, we'll soon get used to it
