    Since we can’t get a special list of “Mentions You’ve Received” like the list of “Likes You’ve Received”, or an email alert specifically just for Mentions, I’d like to know how others go about finding where they’ve been mentioned/tagged. I seem to miss a lot of them just using the drop down of alerts. I’m sure it’s just my oversight, but since there are so many different ways of doing things around here (different paths, menus, etc to achieve the same result) I thought I’d see if someone has a way that I haven’t discovered.
    Thanks in advance!

    I miss tags all day every day.
    I haven't figured out a way to find them easily yet.

    I just pull the list of alerts and do a '''find on page" search for ''mentioned" then "quoted". Not the most efficient but it works.

    It should be one of the tools in your browser.
    I'm using an Android phone and Chrome. There are three vertical dots in the upper right corner of my screen. If I click that symbol I can select find in page from a drop down menu.

    Oh ok...I don't have that.
    I thought you meant something here on BYC but you are meaning a search function in your actual browser.

    Thanks!
    I had done that on desktop, but forgot my mobile browser (safari-iPhone) has that capability too. I’ll try it and see if I can get used to it.

    Still curious of other ways too
