I know this is somewhat of a rare request/edge case, but this is becoming really annoying. In the faq, which I've linked to below, you state that for the comment reply system to work,
There must be a starts-with, case-insensitive match of at least three characters in the display name.
Could you please parse the word after that, or consider reducing the number of matching characters required down to two, because, I think as you could see now, the first word of my username1 consists of only two letters, and apparently nobody knows of the correct way of doing this, which in my opinion is quite obscure:
Spaces are removed from the display names for matching purposes
I mean, the only instance where I know somebody did this right is here: Is there such thing as a relative jQuery selector?.
I've basically been reduced to opening up questions with my six last comment and refreshing them one by one to watch for replies. Its painful and stupid. Sigh.
The problem isn't just with my name specifically, though. Although most (all?) English names have at least three characters, this is not true with the Chinese language. A lot of Chinese characters when are anglicized become two character words. Last names with two characters (anglicized into two words in English) are also allowed. Yes, its not really an i18n problem, but surly you could have foreseen this before setting the limit to three?
So, look, I would really like not to have to change this display name into camalCase just to get comment replies working.
1The entirety of which is my last name, by the way, so please stop calling me 'Yi' :)
How do comment @replies work?
