A note about not being able to tag members

I have had a couple people ask about not being able to tag members lately. This is often due to either a voluntary(to take a break) or involuntary suspension.

Regular members are not able to tag someone when they are on suspension. At least thats how the software is supposed to work. I have seen some tagged while suspended. It may be dependent on whether their profile is public or private as well as to whether can tag on suspension. I’m not 100% sure on that.

Anyway, point being, this is often the reason that users cannot be tagged.


This can also happen due to anonymization.

If you want to find out what’s up with a member, you can use the search function. If they are not anoned, you should be able to find a post by them, click on their profile and see if they are suspended. Unless their profile is private.

Mods, admin and (I think) members with leadership trust level can still tag anyone on suspension. Don’t ask me why. This is just the way it works.
