I see a similar post from a few months ago, marked as 'closed', but without any apparent resolution.
The power of P2 is great. But the biggest weakness I have found is its apparent inability to notify a user of a post mentioning them. In a group environment such as P2 is intended to support, being able to flag someone down via email and have them check the blog is important. I need to be able to assign a task to someone within the blog and hoping they stumble across it isn't adequate... I need an email to fire over their way informing them of the post.
Maybe this is falls into the area of 'plug-in' rather than 'theme', but a solution of some sort would certainly be good for me! Wondering... would BuddyPress add this functionality?
