    @ZeroHour:

    Ah I see - you need the semi colon at the end too... Anyway it can be done without that?

    Hmm - @ZeroHour: both you, @localzuk and myself have been mentioned at least twice, but the count is still at 1?

    This is due to you tagging yourself I think.

    Interesting - it changed the semi-colon to a colon when it posted the message (I swear blind I typed a semi!)

    I thought this - except it increased to 1 after I did my test at the top, but not when @localzuk: did it.. interstingly it went to 3 after you did it!

    would be nice if it autotagged a username! though this would prob slow things down too much..
