Okay this idea sucks, dont read it.
Well, seeing that some us have long usernames or are never really ever referred to by our real usernames on /main I thought it would be nice to have something where we are pinged or have the box glow when we are called nicknames.
For example, DarkChaplain. Most people don't want to formally use '@' so they call him DC or Chappy or DaCha when wanting to casually talk and if he is in a different tab, he will not be notified when someone is referring to him. And for someone with even more nicknames I think it would be even more beneficial.
Also, user someone and T. The word "someone" is fairly used in /main and it would help if he were notified by his IRL name, Perry, which a good number of users call him. Moving on to user, T, who is notified anytime the letter T is typed, would benefit from being able to turn the notifications off completely or only be notified by a name of his choice, possibly, Watermelon.
Basically, most likely located in the settings, I'd like to see an option where we can add names to a list of things we would like to be notified by in /main. Am I making sense?
Something like this maybe
Im sure the check boxes need improvement.
There are probably a lot of flaws in this suggestion so it might not even be considered but I just wanted to throw it out there. I think it would be a nice thing to have. I'm not sure if it is even possible. If anyone else spots flaws or has anything to add to it please feel free to.
