Pretty cool, I had something like this at my forum at one point but found it to be abused often... I kept seeing threads in my SPAM forum with things like "MGM sucks!" or "MGM, I'm calling you out..." etc. so I removed it so as not to scare off new members :p

I actually did something like that too... I made a thread saying "username has been banned for flooding" .... everyone freaked out saying "I didnt do anything!"

This same trick was performed by an admin of a forum I used to participate in a few years ago. I think it was a variable called $bbusername or something. I don't know if vB still using it or not. The variable was on the thread title which says: 'username, you're my favourite member' so it was more eye-catching & members were getting astonished. One member said:
Why? I've just registered 2 hours ago & I haven't posted anything yet! :canttalk: :unhunh:

The thread vastly went into several pages while members realized the trick. It was very funny indeed.

I've heard of the two, the $whatever method and the [you] method... I have installed both at one point or another :p

How does this work anyway?
It takes the username of whoever is viewing the thread and replaces a keyword in the post with that username. Could be [you] or [username] or anything.
