Asking Questions and using Mentions on a Proof
This article is intended to explain the process of asking Questions, mentioning other collaborators and replying to them.
There are 2 methods of communicating with other collaborators on a Proof.
Ask a question directly to another collaborator, this adds your question to the comment list and emails the relevant collaborator informing them that you are asking a question.
Mention another collaborator, this enables you to direct another collaborator to a comment you have made or have been included on.
