Does @Mod @Moderators etc work, or do I have to notify individually (@Qiaochu @Willie @Zev @Mariano, etc) if I seek moderator intervention?


1 Answer 1


Moderator intervention is invoked using the "flag" link, not a comment.

In addition, the @-notification only works if the user is already participating in the comment thread. If you just randomly @Mariano on a comment thread which he has not commented on, he will not received any notification whatsoever. (In other words, the @-notification is expressly for comment responses and not for summoning genies.)

  • $\begingroup$ What does this have to do with summoning genies? Afterall, the notifications are intended to clean up the site, not for the fulfillment of my personal wishes. Anyhow, thanks for the concise answer. $\endgroup$
