I need to superping a user that apparently only has an Area 51 account, but when I try to use


I get

User not found: @@xxxxx@discuss

I imagine there's something wrong with the way the domain name is parsed.

How about dropping the discuss subdomain? –  random Feb 6 '12 at 20:50
@random Without that, the superping isn't processed as one. –  badp Feb 6 '12 at 20:52
Discuss is generally weird -- you can't subscribe to posts there either, for example. Presumably it's a different branch than normal metas? –  Matthew Read Feb 6 '12 at 21:22
superping​​​​​​? –  BlueRaja Feb 6 '12 at 23:22
@BlueRaja It's a mod thing. –  John Feb 6 '12 at 23:31
@MatthewRead - Area51 is built on the SE 1.0 engine. There's a planned update which will rework the whole thing, so the 2.0 update (and this conversation) aren't really a big deal. –  Kevin Vermeer Feb 6 '12 at 23:38
@Kevin Interesting, thanks for the info. –  Matthew Read Feb 7 '12 at 16:31
