So I'm in a few servers that act as communication between an alliance/guild in a game, and sometimes I get pinged purely cause the poster wants to send out instructions to other guild members that are somewhat related to me, but don't require me to do anything... so like when the officers know I'm currently unavailable so they tell the rest of my alliance to back me up on the stuff I can't do.
It's really annoying when I come back the next day and there's like 5 messages just telling others to finish the job I started. So here's my idea.
Basically, with this feature, adding a certain character before the @ in a mention (maybe `@ or something), and this will mean that the 'mentioned' user will not get a mention notification, but will still be highlighted.
I'd be perfectly fine if this feature is never implemented; just thought that this might keep some people that little bit more sane... so yeah read this how you will.
