I figured I would necro an old thread instead of making a new one.

Is there any possibility of implementing something like this?

There was a site I was on that you cold use an @ symbol before someone name and it would "alert" them that they were mentioned in a specific post.

I realize you could just PM someone, but sometimes the context is lost.

Notifications should be possible, but whether it's a good idea is up for debate. Also, there might be performance issues.

What we certainly could and probably should do is somehow highlight posts or somehow bring attention to posts with an @ mention.

This has limited utility for me

mostly because I search for my own name every few days so I can Beetlejuice people
