"Summon" member notification

Hear me out on this one. I know of 1 forum (MSF - Mazdaspeedforums) that has this and I thought it was pretty cool. Instead of 'asking' for specific member(s) to view a thread only to have them overlook it or take months to notice it, you could "summon" the member. On MSF, you type in "@ (enter member name here)" and that member will get sent a notification message. The notification is similar to the "like" that's been incorporated in this forum (which I like btw ). Instead of waiting or sending the member a PM, you can just enter their member name after the "@" symbol, which would send them a notification message. What do you guys think?

EDIT: I believe you can also click on the 'summons' like you would a link and be linked to their profile. Pretty cool.

As long as it isn't active in the classified section. I can see people posting an ad and then "summoning" everyone and their grandmas to view their thread. Or someone making a "help I have a problem" thread and summoning the whole forum to try and get help.

It sounds cool as long as there are ways to prevent people from abusing it.

True...in terms of abusing it. I'm sure there could be a way of deactivating it in the classifieds.

We should just create stickies with links pointing to threads. Clean up the sections a bit.

I can see Paul canceling his account from all the swap and mod questions people keep asking over and over. I guarantee he will have the most @'s out of anyone on the forum.lol.
