One thing we talked about but have not implemented was notifications for when a link to a comment or post is used in a comment or post. "Cards"

For example, ButterflyEffect would get a notification for the below card:

That'd be kind of neat. I think, though, I would like the ability to toggle that function on or off as I please.

I think it's good that notifications can be toggled on and off but I'm not keen on getting overly granular with it. Do you think you'll be bombarded by people referencing your posts and comments?

I don't think so. I just hope so.

Ha! Fair enough. Me too

I strongly support this. The commentor or poster mentioned is likely to be both interested in the subject matter of the conversation and in how their ideas are being referred to. I think it may function almost like a citation, just adapted for an online social site. Personally, I'd appreciate receiving these to protect the integrity of my ideas and words. If it's being used in a way I didn't intend, having the notification would allow me to correct any misunderstandings.

Or, of course, we could all just have an informal agreement to tag people who's posts/comments we reference.
