I've seen on some comments that there is a comment related to a specific user that has indicate with @ and after the user name.

Is a really good thing for me but can be that i've not seen, but it appears strange that i must write the user's nick and that there is not a way to have a dropdown menu in that appears the nick of users that partecipate at the question?

Currently this feature is not available. Its a nice to have feature request.

I was very much impressed the way facebook does this - Facebook matches your friend/LIKE list as you type just few characters. No need to press @user too. Lot's of intelligence goes behind.

BTW, I'm working on this feature.


Integrating this will autocomplete @usernames like Facebook!

@pajju, did you find a solution on how to correctly position the autocomplete dropdown over the text input?
