Remove the ping (@Mention) option from original question

Dear community members,

 

I’m proposing an idea to remove the ability to ping members in a ‘Question’ post. This will only apply to the original question. The reason I’m suggesting this idea is because I have seen a few occurrences where new and sometimes not so new users have pinged a few members  directly in their question and this is considered not good netiquette. So why provide the option? I’m new to the forum, so I do not know what could be some of the good reasons to ping members directly in an original question. So this may not be a good idea in the end.

And the idea partly came up after reading this https://community.oracle.com/ideas/2266

I have searched for a similar idea, but couldn’t find one. If this already exists please ignore/downvote. (or I can delete, if it is possible)

 

Thanks,

Sherry
