Mention feature is a pain

Mention feature is a pain
Every time I go to use the mention feature, it seems like the option to auto-select a name doesn't work. Instead of placing the name after the "@" symbol, it will just erase everything and I have to start over. Often, I end up having to just manually type in the quotation marks and the name after the @ symbol.

Am I doing something wrong?
If you're frightened of dying, and you're holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away. But if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the Earth.

@wyzas Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

It seems like half the time, when I click the name, instead of placing the name after the @ symbol, the box to pick the name just goes away instead of placing the name there.

So what am I doing wrong.

@EgoDeath: Premature clicking. They have medication for that now.

lol Okay I'll try to be more patient, but I don't think that's the issue tbh

I can't replicate the problem. If anyone else could, that would help.

RE: Mention feature is a pain
Please help. I have not been on this forum for a while but my previous username was pgrimes15. The site does not recognize my login now and says my email is an invalid address when I try to retrieve my password (ironically the very email I am using right now). I have re-registered as Grimesy but would prefer to have my old name as I had some kudos and had made a donation. Can you help me with this?.

I’m sure it can be fixed, but it may take an administrator to do it. Be patient, as they don’t come round that often.

You might want to post this in the ‘Questions for Staff’ forum, it may get acted on more quickly.

RE: Mention feature is a pain
I can replicate the issue. It happens during posting from my desktop. If I’m quoting or replying and I @ mention the name breaks and what name I type ends up injected into the quote tag in the reply. Something to do with the tags and code and maintaining cursor focus in how a mention is applied and creates the lookup to user
"There ought to be a term that would designate those who actually follow the teachings of Jesus, since the word 'Christian' has been largely divorced from those teachings, and so polluted by fundamentalists that it has come to connote their polar opposite: intolerance, vindictive hatred, and bigotry." -- Philip Stater, Huffington Post
