Beta! Anyway

Features:

  • Restricts the characters in username to standard English characters A-Z, numbers 0-9, and the underscore sign.
  • Disallow spaces among username characters.
  • Mention other users if you type @Nickname in the question, answer or comment contents.

No autocomplete, no notification, and of course not perfect. Works on my site, not sure on yours.

Not to rain on your parade, but there already is a plugin providing this feature (https://github.com/q2apro/q2apro-on-site-notifications).

No, my plugin has nothing to to with Kai's plugin. You misunderstood. The only plugin that overlaps mine is pupil1985's dynamic mention public.

So you're creating a link to the profile of the mentioned user? Isn't the main point of a mention to have the mentioned user notified?

My simple plugin can be integrated into q2apro's plugin to get the users notified, but I will only do that if Q2A finally uses q2apro plugin as a default one. Currently, if I want to do so I have to request plugin users to install q2apro's plugin, or I have to replicate his tool.         Well, I think people can use part of my codes to merge with other plugins, rather than as a standalone one.
