I wasn't on HB for very long, so I'm not sure if it was on there. It probably was since a lot of forums have this already. Soooo those that know what it is already can just tl;dr the shit below.(and even this paragraph)
The suggestion I call 'mentions' is just something simple but really helpful. A good example of it being used is on Facebook, with tagging someone in a picture. I would just say 'Me & Ben' and his name would be highlighted and a notification would be sent to him so he knows someone mentioned him somewhere.
Well that's the same basic concept of 'mentions', except here I would say '@Ben' and a notification would be sent and it would say 'Gbm has mentioned you here(there would be a link provided to the thread)'. I said before it would be useful for the Neopets Trading section, RS trading section(if there is one, idk) and the Art selling section, and it isn't just useful for selling sections it can be useful in Spams and other places, I'm just using the selling areas as an example since those would have more of a better effect for this idea.
If I'm selling things or even buying things, instead of having to go through PMs/VMs/MSN/ect I could just post on selling/buying thread, which would bump the thread up, and notify the buyer/seller they haven't given me anything yet or I could mention a specific person who would be interested in the thread.
There's other threads/needs you could use it for too, like if you're talking to multiple members at once and instead of quoting each and every single post, you could just say well @Epic, you suck. @Ben, sup broseph, ect.
Also, if this idea is considered, I also noticed that one person who implemented the idea also added how many times that person was mentioned in posts, it was put under the persons user information every time they posted. It isn't really needed but it's just a thought.
If you didn't get any of what I said/things weren't explained properly then visit this thread:
My guess is DLing what is shown ^ there will also implement what I mentioned about it mentions showing under your gender/posts, and everything else that's needed.
Basically, if you want to avoid reading this poorly written-out, detailed, post then read that thread I linked.

Oh! Like the ping system on subeta? I really liked that. It's a good/easy way to get someone's attention.
I also like this idea, seems a simple and very handy way to alert somebody (:
I like that idea, it would be nice to know who talks about you.
I second approve of this. We had it CR
@Gbm I think this would be really cool!
Good idea I hope someone makes it happen, I would love to in a way "tag" people in my posts.
I love this kind of ideas
Innovative ones are the law :3
Any idea if this will ever be considered at all, Admins?
