How is it possible to alert a contributor of an answer of your post that you have answered to him ?

In other words, to put his name in color in comments.

I didn't find back the manipulation to this.

Sorry for this question which is not very interesting from a mathematica point of view. But, it didn't find it in the help of the forum.

This question came from our site for users of Wolfram Mathematica.

  • Use the @ before his/her username? – Emy Feb 11 '16 at 15:57
  • @Emy Thank you you. But on long names and may be in old posts, it seems to me that it doesn't work – Bendesarts Feb 11 '16 at 16:01

    @Bendesarts If you comment on an answer, the person who wrote the answer will be notified. If you want to notify a commenter, you need to use the @ syntax. It is not possible to notify someone who is neither the author of the answer, nor commented on it. Notifications are in-website only, so if the person hasn't opened StackExchange, s/he will not receive the notification. – Szabolcs Feb 11 '16 at 16:04
