Tagging users with spaces in their name

  • Whoandwhatitis by Whoandwhatitis moderator

    I wanted to mention someone in a post by using the @ format, but I've been unable to figure out how to do this with people that have a space in their name, or other non-alphanumeric characters.

    Is this a limitation of the system, or is there a specific format to accomplish this?

    For example: I can tag @Whoandwhatitis, but I can't tag @Who and what it is.

    You can't. 😕 This is one of the bugs in the current Talk system that drives me particularly crazy. Another thing that does so is that tagging someone doesn't really do much!

    Both of these things are high-priority to be fixed in the next generation of Talk.
