User Mentioning v1.4.3 - limited to one mention per post?
It seems that mentioning multiple users with the @usermention feature will only work with the last person mentioned.
The idea of using @usermentions effectively is to reply to multiple users in a single reply, but it seems that you still have to mention each person in their own reply.
Will this be fixed?
Please note that we don't use username for mentioning. This is the nicename, you can change it in My Profile Account page. Also please make sure each @nicename is free from all chars around. For example @nicename. and @nicename! will not work. It should be @nicename . and @nicename !

Thanks for explaining. So it should work to notify multiple users who were mentioned in a single post?
I believe a comma was used to separate the @nicename of each, which is perhaps why it didn't work for the first several users.
This will not work: @nicename, @nicename, @nicename,
This will work fine: @nicename , @nicename , @nicename
We'll make it more intuitive in future releases so such symbols will be ignored in case they are close.
Wonderful, thanks for the explanation! I'm hoping to see an auto-complete feature where the user only has to type the @ and it will fill in the nicename as they type. Some of my users have a different nicename/username and it's not intuitive currently.
