Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Currently parts of the chat engine ignore Unicode characters and punctuation, so if someone's name consists of non-Latin characters it's impossible to ping them.

Presumably there are Stack Exchange plans to improve support for internationalisation(?) If there are, could this be put on the todo list?

After seeing your gravatar, I keep reading this question as unicorn usernames... :-) – user162697 Aug 7 '11 at 15:16
It's not only Unicode characters. My username there is F'x (which is ASCII only) and I can't be pinged either… – F'x Sep 2 '11 at 9:32
@FX, did you have that user name on the sites too? (And if so: did notification fail then as well?) – Arjan Sep 2 '11 at 17:22
