    Ever needed to tag a user that has non-standard characters in their name?
    Example: ๑۩†Holy†۩๑
    Tagging "@Holy" will not work.

    1. Go to the user you want to tag's forum profile.
    2. Take note of the user's number ID in the url.

    3. Format and example.
    Code:
    [user=<number ID>]@<name you want call them>[/user]
    Example:
    [user=2156]@Holy the Great[/user]
    
    4. Result: @Holy the Great
    5. ...
    6. Profit???

    (Holy, agree to this post if you get the tagged alert.)
