If I include a username (e.g. @atavakoli) in an answer or comment, I'd like it to link to that person.  I'd also like that person to be notified that they were mentioned in a post.

Is there a way to do this in the core, or is there a known plugin that does this?

There is a plugin from 2011 for this purpose, maybe you try it: http://www.question2answer.org/qa/6084/notification-plugin-available

Furthermore, I am developing a new plugin for this purpose: http://www.question2answer.org/qa/25686/who-is-interested-in-%40user-mentioning-notification-system - Released soon ;)

Thanks! I looked at the plugin, which seems to have a few unresolved issues that would keep me from using it at this time.  I've commented on the second question (i.e. that I would be interested in such a plugin being developed).

I'll accept your answer pending the release/usability of that plugin :)
