I have a user, whose name is 2012User. When I try to superping them (
@@) in the public 3DPrinting chatroom, with
@@2012, their name does not appear in the auto-complete user search suggestions box thing1:
They have a rep over over 100 (192), they have posted questions on the 3D Printing site, so they are an established user. Why is superping not working, or rather, why is their username not listed in the user suggestions?
@@email@example.com seems to make the user suggestion work correctly, but it is rather longwinded:
I do wonder if it is the old issue of 3DPrinting's site name causing issues again? See 3DPrinting question URLs aren't parsed in chat [duplicate]
I have tried pinging them with both
@@firstname.lastname@example.org but the latter doesn't appear to resolve the name correctly, and ends up looking like this
@@email@example.com please join us in chat
whereas I'd expect it to look like:
@2012User please join us in chat
Also, I'm not sure if either of them (
@@firstname.lastname@example.org) worked as the user has not responded.
Note that other users with usernames beginning with numbers appear in the user suggestion just fine, as the first screen shot shows, just this particular user.
1 I don't know the correct term for this UI component
