I didn't realize mentions could be turned off! Great news for those with PLZ accounts
lolz didnt even occur to me about how plz accounts would be affected though I do know how emoticonists get hit and I'm not even popular XD
Who would every turn off Mentions? How would you know if people were talking about you?
I'm a official beta tester without being premium.

I love the 'mentions' feature. No unsightly spam messages when doing features
good for popular and less popular artists
Well, there you have it then. For all of the people who were worried their inboxes would be spammed with too many notices...problem solved!
Thanks for the advice!
