Possible Duplicate:
Change all @username references in comments when a user changes their name?

Have noticed occasionally a comment @ someone's handle that isn't found anywhere on the page (using a browser's search functionality) - Example Allow highlighting certain bits of a code fragment or quote, and subsequent comments supposedly directed towards @Down

I presume this is because OP's sometimes change handles, but the system doesn't change these elements in posts.

Any chance of making the system change all @oldhandles, to the new handle upon OP change?

  • I see no instance in that question where the @name is not on the page. – user206222 Jan 14 '13 at 2:14
