Whenever I try to reply or refer to another Doper in a post using the @username convention, it never seems to work the way I expect. When I type the @ character, it shows me a list of user names (which I thought was supposed to be everyone who had already posted in the thread). And as I type the user name the list shrinks to match what I’ve typed, but here’s the thing – it never shows me the name of the user I’m looking for. I wind up having to type the entire user name in.
So, am I doing this wrong, or just not understanding how it is supposed to work?
