This question already has an answer here:

I logged into Stack Overflow and saw that I had three notifications; turns out those notifications were meant for another user:

enter image description here

I've gone in and checked the chat message where I was apparently mentioned; none of them were edited:

@tchrist just using @ᔕᖺᘎᕊ with an @ before it.

and this:

@ᔕᖺᘎᕊ test

and also this:

@ᔕᖺᘎᕊ Check your GH

Why was I 'pinged' when another user was mentioned? Was this supposed to happen, or is this a bug of some kind?

  • @PeterJ Thanks! I did check first but the title of that question isn't the best. – AStopher Sep 24 '15 at 14:43
  • @cybermonkey: sorry, at the time when this was happening the title did reflect what was going on. (Edited in the mean time) – Fabby Sep 24 '15 at 15:22
