2) Deal Alerts are things that you signed up for. Possibly when you entered site-wide contests that offered extra entries when you left the box checked allowing deal alerts for threads about that day's merchant. eg: Dell sponsored giveaways = DAs for Dell deal threads.
If I don't want to quote users, but want them to know that I mentioned them in my post (assuming this is possible), how do I do so? Is there a special way that their usernames must be mentioned / typed?
The only way they will be notified specifically that you have mentioned their name in a post within a thread is to quote them.
If you don't want to have the text that they wrote to be quoted, you can remove it and just leave a "dot" in the quotes
(like I did above ^ for your quote).
If you are reading this you are most likely new to SlickDeals.net (also know as "SD"). This thread is to help smooth your transition into a new and exciting world of saving money. Let me be the first to welcome you!
Your curiosities and inquiries are most likely answered here. If not, feel free to post in this thread and your question(s) will be answered shortly.

PMs are limited to one during your initiation period into SD. This includes PMs you send and receive. Delete the PM you have sent/received to send or receive another one. Repeat until you are a regular member.
The reason why is simple. SD gets spammed crazy! It happens when you are a major website. New user spammers come here to post their websites and links to evilly lure you into "deals" that are not really deals. You probably do not notice it because the staff of this site does such an excellent job of insuring each members safety and security but it happens on a daily basis. Furthermore, this limitation is to protect members from malicious & unwanted messages, posts, and other such communications.
The exact formula will never be given out. NEVER. The reason for this is so spammers don't know the "magic" equation, fulfill it, and then spam you. All I can say is that you need to participate more. It will happen before you know it.
Your other questions should be answered in the SD FAQ Mega Thread. Please read it and see if your questions are answered. If not, feel free to ask. SDers are always eager to help their fellow members, new and old.
