..when I do the "@xxxxxx" thing it never comes up in bold like I see on other people's posts...does this mean that my notifications aren't working? What am I doing wrong? : :cry:
Oh my God, what's happened? I don't know man...I just got here myself!

Out of interest, when you type @ and then the first few characters of the username, does it come up with an autocomplete box? (see pic)

Does it work if you manually type

Code: Select all

Nope. Will try manual method. Thanks.

Edited to add: works on my phone, not on my tablet... must be something to do with settings

Works on everything except my ipad which sometimes does and sometimes has complete conniption and refuses to type anything. I find more frustrating the on off nature of spell check. Its really highlighted how bad my spelling has become when I have to stop and look it up. Even basic words can leave my mind a blank! :shock:
or pre spell check- Evin bassic wurds leaf my mind a blancke :D

That was a fellow journalist’s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. It’s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.
