What jQuery plugin is used to display the user card and tag information pop-ups? I was convinced one of the team posted details about the implementation before but my google and SO searching skills are failing me today.

I am considering implementing a similar feature for a in-house project and I am looking for a starting point.

Note that if you'd ask for the same effect on SO, you'd have a complete working fiddle in minutes. – Denys Séguret Jul 19 '12 at 9:41
@dystroy Correct. But I didn't want a working fiddle :) I wanted to determine if I needed to figure it out myself. – BinaryMisfit Jul 19 '12 at 9:59

As far as I could delve into the code and see, it's not using any plugin just custom code and ordinary jQuery animation.

The function used is called MagicPopup, it's part of the full JavaScript code used in the site and is publicly available.

I suspected as much, I suspect the plugin I am referring to is something else one of the developers referred to once before. – BinaryMisfit Jul 19 '12 at 7:06
