One thing you can do in messages is “at” someone (like @okushimo ) which will put the message in a user’s notifications since you mentioned them.

Our annual IFComp virtual meetup of the Seattle/Tacoma IF group will be on Sunday, October 17 from 2 PM to 4 PM (ish) via Discord. Group members who have an entry in this year’s competition are encouraged to present their games; we’ll play a sample of each (about 30 min) and take questions as we go. This was a lot of fun last year, so we’re looking forward to being able to do it again.
