This is a design sketch for the "summon command", which is a way of notifying a Wikidot user directly of an important page or comment.

The syntax is: [[user username!]]. Using this syntax in any comment or page causes a notification to go the user, with this email subject: "[sitename] %%created_by%% wants your attention".

Use cases:

  • Ask someone to join a thread or chat
  • Let someone know you're talking about them

The summon takes effect when a page is created, but not when it is edited.
