Perhaps I'm being a bit thick but what does "@plusname" appearing in posts mean?

If you type @ followed by wre...you'll get a little blue box with my name in it. Click on the appropriate persons name if there is a choice.  0_0 That person will then (theoretically) get a notification. Mine have stopped for some reason but you can practice on me anyway if you like. @So Chic
