Mentioning fellow GAGers is cool and all but?

It gets a little nettlesome when you have to keep checking to see whether or not you spelled their names correctly.

Should that be something to improve on? Like, an autofill?
Is anyone okay without an autofill?

  • I actually appreciate the fact that people are now forced to spell my username correctly. I would go even further and make it so that you even have to use the right capitalization for the mentioning to work. I hate it when people type "sandplanet" or "Sandplanet" instead of "SandPlanet". And one thing I like about my username is how the middle looks somewhat mirror-inverted - "dP". It saddens me to see my name without that. :(

  • You can just simply highlight the username and right click "copy and paste". What's so hard about that?

  • I personally wish Comments had a "REPLY" button on them that you could press and it would type in @theusernameyouwant automatically into the comment you're writing.

    Also, this is why it's nice to have an easily rememberable name, not like @Dbt25677 and stuff. Who remembers that? You need to check your follow list just to know their name, haha.

  • I'd like to be able to click a button next to a name and have it copied to my clipboard. Then I can paste it wherever. This is not impossible, and is done in many websites.

  • It's not a problem for me, I've either memorized
    all the names I need, or I just copy-paste them.

    I don't need something like an "autofill"
    if I need something I'll do it myself. ^.~
