Check out the announcement about the new mention system dA has implemented:

Deviant and Art MentionsMentions: Connecting People
Mentions are a new, highly requested feature that makes engaging friends and artists in conversation more dynamic than ever before.
What is a Mention?
A Mention is when a deviant’s username, icon, or artwork is included in a comment or Journal. Mentions create links to the deviants or artwork you include, allowing you to highlight artists and engage deviants with ease.
Links to pages on deviantART can quickly be distinguished by their bold, dark-blue color, while external links are darker and have an arrow indicating you are leaving deviantART.
Deviants you mention are notified in the new Mentions section of the Message Center, making engaging and involving others in conversation a simple, hassle-free experience.
How to Mention
There are four ways to mention a deviant.
Code
Example
Displays as
username
@spyed
spyed
username
:devspyed:
spyed
:iconusername:
:ic


If it works the way it should, simply mentioning my account with a :dev: or :icon: tag in your description, or including the thumb of the stock image you used should notify me of the use of the stock. Assuming it all works properly, you can consider this type of notification sufficient for the requirement in my license agreement to show me your work.  For more help with linking things on dA, please see: FAQ #81: How can I create links to other deviants, deviations, or websites?

If you mention me or thumbnail the stock in the artist comments, you do not have to send me an additional message to tell me about the stock use. Doing so will result in redundant messages and make it more difficult for me to sort through and keep up. ^__^  However, if you choose to not link to me in the artist comments, please be sure you are sending me a message to show me the work.

Hopefully this system works well and this will make it easier for me to find art using the stock and easier for artists to be in compliance with notification requirements. :D

EDIT: Apparently, if you write your artist comments and forget to mention the stock, editing it to add it will not notify me. In that case, please be sure you still message me.  :D

EDIT 2: Obviously, if you post the art off dA you will still have to message me to show me. ^___^; Thought they also implemented this handy off site link icon that shows up next to links to other sites and that will help me a lot, too!

EDIT 3: It seems to be working in most cases, but there's still some times when people have credited me and I'm not getting the mention. ;(  If you don't get a favorite from me within about a week or so, please feel free to message me if you want to be sure I've seen your art!  I don't want to miss a thing!!

EDIT 4: If you post a link to the photo as a URL, it will not tag me. It has to be a thumb (which only subscribers can do, right?) or my DA name as an icon or dev link.

Finally, something useful!  Hopefully this will help you keep up on all the work that your stock is used in, especially since I know I'm guilty of forgetting to send you a note when stock is used.

I'm really excited about it since a lot of people credit and don't tell me ;D I don't want to miss out on cool art! >w<

But it definitely doesn't seem to be working 100% of the time yet ~__~

Well, they did just launch it and, as we've seen with some of their new feature launches, it will likely break a few times before it starts working perfectly.  However, I'm excited to see how much more art gets credited and recognized this way.  It'll be so great!

on someone's poll. they were talking about mentioning people, and i said i hadn't tried it yet, and then tried it in said comment.

it's worked other times now.. just not that time. but Silvia has managed to mention herself via her other accounts. :S its. weird. maybe its just a glitch. im going to test it again at the weekend and see, if im still having trouble i'll send a bug report.

*SenshiStock (this won't show in your mentions because it's in your journal) One other thing, you only get a mention in a artist comments when the deviation is first created, if you edit them in there shouldn't be any notification
