Girls, guys, how often do you get mentions through the @mention function?

When the feature was introduced I would receive about one every 3 days or so.
Today, it's 1 to 2 per day. Though I love the feature, it's especially interesting if you think a fellow GAG'er may be capable of helping someone or if someone has commented on your opinion.

How often do you receive mentions?

  • More than 2 times daily
    17% (6)12% (3)15% (9)Vote
  • 1 or 2 times daily

  • (Almost) never

And you are? I'm a GirlI'm a Guy

    • Oh I was going to mention you in that "best of" post the other day for best advice, but I decided not to comment.

    • Aww thank you so much Hans, that's very sweet of you to say :)

      And thank you @cavmanier :) I try to give good advice when I can.

  • The only time I get mentions...

    Is when there is a question about who on GaG has nice eyes...

    or something where my eyes can play into it.

    • Who on GAG is wearing a cap @Betwyn?
      And of course, your eyes are impressive. But you're more than just eyes. Nice person. Thanks for being here as counterweight to all those creeps and anon insulting specialists!

    • I thought everyone had a crush on you.

    • @justbeinghonest That would be news to me lol

  • I don't know Hans 😐 mostly this mofo is mentioning me @BertMacklinFBI lol once or twice every day? I really don't know.. People keep calling me misscoffeebabe and not Misscoffeehead lol I think I should change it according to what people see fit lol 🙈

      I'll be off in a minute or 5, going to the fitness room for some workouts! Staying healthy...

    • Haha omg! 🙈 a bio on Misscoffeehead now that's something.. Mm.. Quite interesting to see! But sweet! Haha hey you might be able to do a better job then my current bio on GaG.. It's just got a song I have in my head, it's lyrics, and a happy holiday message to everyone on here lol 🙈
      Haha yeah cool cool.. You have to stay healthy.. When you can ☺️

  • Awwww :(
    I wish I could know who voted D. I'd mention them :)

    I get mentioned like once per week. Someone usually saying that I'm funny or give brutally honest opinions. 'Tis about it. It's nice to get them once in a while :)

    • Haha another GAG'er made me aware that the mention @asker goes into no mans land... this will not create a mention on the side of the asker... funny situation :-)

    • Haha I see... is GAG'ing a good way to become sleepy? Or did it make you even more alert?

  • I'm rarely mentioned. The only time someone mentions me is when I comment their answer or when they comment mine. Otherwise, no one mentions me (but that's because I'm not well-known on GAG).

    • Yeah that depends on the person mentioning you... if someone needs to vent frustration that mention won't make you happy :-(
      If someone want to appreciate you that's better. And if they ask you to help someone out that's fine as well...

    • Haha, no problem! I'll give you one @AnayaWilliams :-)

    • this is part of the war also. There is a war between those who have taken sides and those who have not. So by not taking a side, you have actually taken a side! Unfortunate :/

    • Oh goodness Laura, your strategic knowledge exceeds that of General Schwarzkopf in the Gulf War and Rommel in WW2!

  • I get at least one or two a day but that's because I comment on other people's opinions. Also, a lot of unnecessary mentions by people who don't realise you get notified when the comment on your opinion.

    • Goodness no... if the site offers that option why would I be sarcastic about it?
      Some of us enjoy the interaction and some enjoy being rather low profile.
      The only ones I really worry about, are those who push the anon button and start insulting people. They are a problem. All others are to some degree our friends. So don't worry, I wasn't sarcastic at all.

    • Oh okay. You can never tell with the Internet. Yeah sure can go either way when you're just reading it. :)

  • Maybe once a day?

    • Actually I'm quite good with numbers. It was one of my better subjects in school.

    • In my case it's quite funny. I'm good with figures but I'm very bad in bookkeeping.
      I can more or less "read" a bookkeeping but if you give me a number of docs and say "book them" I'm completely in trouble :-)
      That's special because in my job - business controller - working with figures and checking info in the bookkeeping of the company is my everyday activity.
      So... I'm weird hahahah!

  • Very often.

    • Than why do you find it such a problem? Your GAG name itself also provides some anonimity so why would it be a problem to get mentioned? It's the interaction with people that makes GAG exciting!

    • Gag is used so that a person is not blocked, mentioned or messaged. My account is open to messaging

    The @ addressing facility works, just like the #search works.
    For the @ it's important to use the screen name the exact way it's spelled: @hans222 may not work @Hans221. is doubtful too.
