It would be nice if Xen could recognize the @KierDarby text and transform it into a live link.

I agree and disagree they are the same and different however I have replied to this idea in the other thread... I will quote...This seems like a duplicate of the thread you linked to...
There are problems with the @ idea in that say for example my name is Ceri May with a space... @Ceri May wouldn't work.... as it would be @ to Ceri not to Ceri May... On a mod for vB that did this they had to resort to using the ; tag... so you got @Ceri May; but this became more complicate than it needed.... Again I think just alert on quote would be good enough.
The problem with this is that people would start using the @username thing instead of using quotes. This would make it harder for others to follow the conversation. I agree that there should be some kind of reply notification, but I don't think this is the way to go.
As Enigma said because of the ability to have spaces in usernames this would be both very server intensive and complicated for the users to do... The only really easy way to do this would be to limit username's to dis-allow spaces and I don't think that would go down to well.+10 for this.
