Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

A while back we used to be able to type [vis_name][/vis_name] and the forum software would turn that BBCode into the name of the logged in user that was viewing the page.

It freaked a bunch of people out who took things personally and shortly after it was disabled.

Doesn't GAF already do this when you highlight a person's name and it says "latest activity"?
