The other day, someone in chat posted a link to a comment that pinged me. To clarify, the comment contained the text @DJMcMayhem, but the chat message did not. When they posted the chat message, I heard a familiar "ding", and a little red circle appeared on my screen.

You can see this chat message here in the transcript, although the relevant comments are now deleted.

Surely this is not the intended behavior! What's the point of pinging someone when you did not explicitly type @username in chat?

  • No repro. The @username is indeed red for me, but there is no ping and no little red circle. Aug 16, 2016 at 15:18
