Advanced @User Tagging: What is it?

DragonByte Technologies is proud to present [DBTech] Advanced @User Tagging.

The @user Tagging mod is designed to increase activity on your forum by allowing members to mention each other in posts when talking about them.
This is done in a very easy way, very similar to how Twitter mentions people. We use @ ; as the tags, so for instance you could say:
----
This new mod from @Dragonbyte Tech; is pretty cool.
----
The “@DragonByte Tech;” Will become a link to the DragonByte Tech users profile, it will also inform DragonByte Tech they had been mentioned, and link to the relevant thread/post via a new area in the profile section, as well as a new tab in the shoutbox.

It also allows members to “tag” the thread for specific other members by inputting their usernames in the tag box above the posts of the thread.

This is a great way to increase your forum activity with no extra admin input required – people will start to mention posts/threads to their friends, which will increase the amount of posting. This is especially useful of forums which have an international contingent (so threads posted in during the night for some of your members don't go overlooked) or forums which have a lot of posts/threads each day – again to make sure that a post a person might want to read doesn't get lost in the crowd.

In versions prior to the latest at the time of writing, this was the default behaviour.

In later versions, these mentions are included, but the thread title is changed to the phrase n_a.

This change was made for performance reasons, otherwise it would have been impossible to practically implement vB Optimise caching of the queries required to calculate mentions to be displayed.

This does not happen, unless you mention a new user in place of the old one (or add a new mention). The new user will then get a notification.

This behaviour makes much more sense in the latest version at the time of writing, where they will still see the new mention in their profile tab (although the thread title is hidden, and is not a link to the thread).

- Edit - I did not notice others above have reported this already.

I've been seeing a lot of N/A entries on profiles and after updating, it has revealed they're marked as Deleted Posts entries. However, these posts do not seem to be deleted (Not found when searching for soft deleted posts by users). I have posted 2 screenshots. The second one shows something more peculiar, two entries at the same time, one marked "Deleted" and another containing the thread title of the quote. I could only guess that it could have something to do with a user editing his post and modifying the @tag? This happens on multiple occasions on many profiles.

What about the thread itself, is that visible?

Can you check the values of the visible column in the post and thread tables for one of those entries? If there's an issue that I can't replicate locally, I'll need to see that data in order to fix it

Installed on 4.2.0, the in-post tagging didn't work, @username didn't trigger anything.

Are there any other mods that do in-post tagging but much simpler? I only need in-post tagging, no mention, no quote, no emails, no thread-level tagging, no stats. This one is too heavy...
