Not too long ago, there was a nice new feature implemented for comment replies to users whose username starts with a non-alphanumeric character; namely, that typing
@ is sufficient to bring up the autocompletion. The relevant thread is here.
Recently, I have been in a chatroom with a user whose username has above properties; however, when I typed the
@ in chat to try and ping them, no autocompletion was triggered.
I suspect that it was simply overlooked to update the chat ping functionality to reflect the change that was made to comment replies.
So my request is simple:
Please activate the
@-triggered autocompletion for usernames which start with non-alphanumeric characters in chat as well.
