    I figured it out. It you type @ and then the userid of the person, it will work. The trouble is I was assuming the userid is the first initial and the last name. Most people have their userid as the full first name, a dash, and then their full last name. You can guess at it, but the text editor will not tell you if you are right until you post it, unless the name is on your friend list.

    So what you can do is view the person’s profile. The userid is the @ sign following the person’s name at the top of the screen. I don’t know how I missed that!

    As I always say, location information is critical to correctly identifying a fossil specimen. It this specimen was found on a Richmondian Stage formation in the Cincinnati Arch, then it’s probably Protaraea richmondensis.

    • It was indeed in the Cincinnati Arch, although I’m hazy on which locality. Apologies for not being able to provide more specific information.

    How do you use “@” to tag a member in a discussion? When I type @I get a dropdown list of people on my friend list, but can’t tag other people. when I type @ and the person’s first initial and last name, it doesn’t turn it into a real tag.

    The Topic Tags box is just creating a character string tag for the discussion, rather than a contextual tag for a userid.

    I can’t seem to tag Kyle Hartshorn. @khartshorn doesn’t work and I can’t find a tag for him.

    I personally have very little free time to be a Myfossil Newsletter editor. I’m having trouble keeping up with the drydredgers.org and geofair.com websites because I do the “Cincinnati Fossils” kits  and the resin and plaster 4.5 inch trilobite casts that we now offer to various local shops.  I’m sure Jack would love to have a real Dry Dredgers Bulletin editor. He has been standing in as editor (and doing a great job with it) after Greg Hand retired and no one in the club stepped forward to take over the job.

    We should prepare a Dry Dredgers Bulletin article explaining the situation with sustaining Myfossil and asking for volunteers for newsletter editor and specific positions related to the newsletter.

    @jbauer how long do we have before we loose the UF staff? What will be the situation and level of involvement of the existing key individuals after the funding cessation? If the Dry Dredgers membership had a clear picture of the situation it may be easier to motivate people to help.

    Here’s another photo from the Palos Verdes Peninsula field trip. This one is at a good vantage point in Del Cerro Park in Rancho overlooking some of the landslide evidence of Portuguese Bend. It was a fine must drizzle that made visibility zero as Austin faithfully pointed out all the geological features to us. We had big smiles. Thanks Austin!

    A big thanks to Austin Hendy and Jorge Velez-Juarbe for providing an enjoyable and educational field trip to see the Stratigraphy and Paleontology Of the Verdes Peninsula. Here’s a pic of Austin at a nice stop where we got to collect in San Pedro. #fossil
