Also I miss being able to click on people's name when I do the mention thing. I have to spell out long names sometimes to do the mention thing.

Mentions have been hit an miss with me. Certain users won't pop up in my list like @arcticf0x (and others) and they won't get the ping either. @Redwood Girl comes up in my list, but she won't get the ping.

  • myininaya
No I'm saying you should be able to click the person's name and instead having to spell out every character of their name
jagatuba
  • jagatuba
That's what I'm saying too. For example: @myininaya I just typed @myi and your name popped up. Hit return and BLAM! there you are.

So you have to type m-y-i-n-i-n-a-y-a to mention me?
jagatuba
  • jagatuba
No just @myi
myininaya
  • myininaya
@jagatuba oh
myininaya
  • myininaya
i been trying to click it
jagatuba
  • jagatuba
Followed by enter.
myininaya
  • myininaya
but still you should be able click when the dropbox is giving you multiple people
jagatuba
  • jagatuba
I think you can click it too. I just find enter as being faster. Let me see if mine works by clicking still. @myi . . .??? Oh weird. you're right.

Yeah for me I work on a lappy a lot so I always use KB shortcut whenever possible. So even when I got the drop with a bunch of people in it I used the cursor keys to highlight the right one, but I just tried that and that's not working now either. WTFarfignewton?

I also noticed doing the mention thingy locks things up
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Well that's fail heh. I'll mention it in a sec and see what's up, thanks. Side note: I believe the dropdown only includes people you're a fan of and *possibly* people online in the current group.

@shadowfiend Sorry friend, but I beg to differ when I just mentioned you I got a whole list of offline users and arcticf0x and I were online at the same time when I noticed it wasn't working with his. *shrug* Oh well. At least iy mostly works. You guys rock.

What about the locking thing? Does it seemed to lock with you guys?
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Hm. Well that's certainly the way it's *supposed* to work :) Locking?

When I do @ ,the whole website freezes for me :(
myininaya
  • myininaya
It does it every time. I have to wait like maybe 15-30 seconds for it to unfreeze.
myininaya
  • myininaya
Ok maybe 19 seconds I just counted using the Mississippi units lol
myininaya
  • myininaya
@amistre64 said it freezes for him too
amistre64
  • amistre64
yep, its like the computer is waiting to populate a list of names to choose from
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Ah. Yes, I noticed that a few minutes ago. Shouldn't be happening, but I suspect it's because we try to render everyone when you first hit @, rather than waiting for the first letter to come in and filter the list a bit.

Hey guys, so to answer a few questions. 1. Redwood Girl isn't getting mentions because of the space in her name. As we've mentioned in the past we're going to be converting those to underscores shortly. That'll fix the issue. 2. You should definitely be able to click the mentions in the result list. This was working in past releases and it would seem that it is no longer working, so that's a bug. 3. Thanks for bringing the @ mention issue to my attention, because I have yet to experience it. Although it seems that we may be running into some issues where things get screwy after your browser has been open on the site for a long period of time. We're definitely going to look into it.
myininaya
  • myininaya
Oh so number 3, you are talking about the freeze thing. I did close my browser and came back and it seems that the @ thing is not freezing the site anymore. Thanks for letting me know.

Yep, these exact things have been happeneing to me too, not able to click people from the drop down list and having to type the name to mention people. I reported this to @cshalvey too (yes i had to type this mention because it wont click on the list). Freezes haven't been common so much with me, have occured a couple of times though, but that could only have been me.
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
Well, in regard to clicking on the list do keep in mind that you can use either your enter key or tab key to auto-complete the highlighted selection. And use up/down to move the highlight around.
jagatuba
  • jagatuba
@farmdawgnation Yes that is what I usually do when I'm on my laptop. but yesterday it was not working when @myininaya and I were discussing this. It seems to be working right now, but I'm also on my Mac right now, so It might have been an issue specific to the lappy. I test it again later if I get the motivation to pull it out.
