Autocomplete for Mentions

Thu Nov 7, 2013, 4:54 PM
We've just launched an addition to the Mentions feature that makes it easier than ever to interact with your friends!

When using @ to Mention a deviant or Group, a list will now appear in a menu while you type that includes deviants and Groups you +Watch, as well as deviants who have already commented in the conversation. This addition makes conversation more dynamic than ever, as communication becomes even easier.

Note that this feature is only available on places where the "Add Media" button is available (comments, deviation descriptions, Journals, etc.).

Try it out!


This addition has been launched to Beta Testers, so feel free to try it out by using @ to Mention deviants you +Watch! We'd appreciate any and all feedback you have. Feedback can be left in the comments on this document, and if you encounter any bugs or other issues, please file them in the devBUG Issue Tracker, under the Autocomplete project.


We've just launched an addition to the Mentions feature that makes it easier than ever to interact with your friends! Now, when you begin typing a username after the "@" symbol, you'll see a list of your friends and other deviants.

This sounds like a fantastic idea, except having a whole list of deviants pop up is kinda tedious. It seems similar to what facebook has when you are trying to find someone. They automatically give you a list of people and auto-select the first option. 
It would be easier if it's only people we watch or who watch us that pop up. Or friends even. At the very least, I would like the option to limit the people who will appear in the list in settings, like being able to see only friends, or watchers, or others who have commented when you type in the at symbol. Perhaps a checklist in Settings where you can check off the kinds of usernames of deviants you want to be able to see. Just to make it all sort better. 
Because if I want to reply to someone else who has commented, I'm not that lazy that I can't just scroll down to find them and hit 'Reply'. ^^ But it still seems like a feature with potential.

seems great to me! This seems quicker than this whole ":dev" thingy, at least when it goes to people we watch. Will there be a possibility of tagging also other Deviants, somewhere in the future? That would make them easier to find

It's a nice feature but now I can't use some of my favorite text-smilyfaces like @ v@ or @ w@;; or @ u@ basically anything with @'s as eyes, they turn out like this -> ~v@ ~w@; ~u@ <- so it'd be nice to have the option of NOT linking to a deviant profile if you wanted.. since some deviants made their username just 1 letter

add an italics/bold/sub/whatever tag in between the @ symbol and the letter then close the tag :D

Umm... This feature is pretty good but you should try to limit the people that us can mention.

Now it can even summon someone I don't know. =A=

Then someone I don't know(not my watcher or someone I watch) can summon me too by random auto complete in this feature.QAQ

I bet eventually, it will be some random advertisement by this feature. QAQ

The journal one didn't pop up for me, though.

Thank you for the membership, by the way!  That's very generous of you.  I'll have to draw you a thing when I have time.

Intriguing! I like it! If there is a way to add and subtract names that popped up on the list manually, that would be a massive thumbs!

Perhaps the next part could be for those who like "plz" accounts where it searches in a similar fashion, but types the ":icon:" instead of the "@" so it will give the image instead of the link in addition to being able to search with the "@".

Well, I like it for usernames. Works well. But I am a contributor for a group that doesn't show up on the list... Is there any reason for this?
