    Here is another method for searching VSalon from Google:

    Hint - forum thread search tools suck, if you want to find something type in what you want into google and then do site:somesitesomewhere.com

    For example, I typed this into google: "riding in the heat site:velocipedesalon.com" and I found it!

    i will surely catch crap for asking, but i'm asking anyway: what is the deal with the little green rectangle under everyone's username. the majority of people display "new kid graduate" when hovered over??

    That is your "reputation" based on post count + the rating others have given yourself. I've never put much thought into the labels for this system. I'm open for suggestions but honestly never went in for that sort of thing...I'm more of a shirts and skins guy.

    Hi,
    In keeping with the question above; where are these "rep power" reviews? I got to a 3, and I've no idea how. Then today, I'm down to a 2 and I'm all freaked out! Did I offend someone or break something? Or is it just a matter of the "likes" given to post-count or something?

    Tagging @ Vsalon

    You may "tag" or "mention" or "quote" Vsalonistas by using these formats: @username (tag), use the quote function to "quote" both results in vsalonists seeing a notification and a change in their stats I have tagged user Curt Goodrich in the example below using: @Curt Goodrich >>

    Also, you can tag folks within the thread. Look at the top right of each thread. In the example below I have typed the user names in the "tagging" box separated by semi colons. *Note there is a type ahead function that will attempt to find the users you seek (soooo Star Wars eh?) >>

    Using the normal "Quote" function will cause the quoted Vsalonista to receive a notifcation. In the case below Vsalonista "Two" will get a notification and link he has been quoted:

    You will see some new things once this gets rolling:
    "Tag" and "Mention" stats in the upper right corner of your posts >>
    taglisttoppage1.jpg

    Notifications happen two ways. First, your browser may be aware of notifications and will create a popup with link(s) to the thread where you are tagged/mentioned. Second, in the upper right hand corner of your users screen (see image below) click for the dropdown and navigate to the thread where you are mentioned/tagged >>

    Last, nobody should get obnoxious emails. If you do let a moderator know and we will talk you down...I mean show you how to fix that. You may opt-in or tune these functions via your control panel. We have deployed this with very vanilla settings for everyone eg do nothing and nothing bad will happen.

    Peace love and bottle rockets MoFos.

    Also, a good place to see tags, mentions etc. is your profile. Click "My Profile" (far upper right of your screen) and behold >>>
