More specifically @ the forum coders

What's up with the automatic bolding of @ signs?

I notice the change applies retroactively, and there's a bug where often it causes some garbage characters to appear on the next line: "/>"

It looks rather bad when (more often than not) the bolding is unintended or the garbage characters appear, and we can already bold these things on our own. Also, if you put a space between someone's names (like @Weird Adam) it'll only bold the first part.

@ForExample
Look at these random characters that just appeared. But if I do it with a space between them, it'll look fine.

@LikeThis

See?


It seems like an unnecessary addition when we could already do this ourselves without worrying about buggy automatic formatting messing everything up, but it isn't a big deal. Not complaining, just pointing out a few oddities to help out.

EDIT: Whoa, something happened to the line break formatting, too. I just did a normal line break and it added the same garbage characters. Weird.

I think the @ stuff is intentional, as I find that I always start my posts with @PersonNameHere: on chatrooms when I want to ask one person. Alas, since forums can quote & PM easily, I think it's a bit irrelevant.

Please no "Destroy This!" gags, please.

Right, I understand it is intentional, of course. I was just pointing out a few minor problems associated with it in case they didn't notice. But by the way, there is no PM feature on this forum.

On a different note, please implement a restriction on how many threads a person can create per day. If this stupid post spamming continues this'll end up looking like the old Nintendo forum. Ugh!

Is there a way to escape asteriks so they don't boldface stuff? You know sometimes I want to do some imparting of emotion sans emoticons, like faints or something, but I just get the word boldfaced.

I wonder what happens if I double them up? **shock**, **horror**

Cool, looks like you just double-star to stop it bolding. I must remember this critical information for living daily life.

What would be cool would be if you could check people who @reply you like on twitter, so that you can always skip straight to those threads, just in case you miss some messages that are directed at you.

Well, you can get notified about posts of interest which you create. Therefore I suggest creating duplicate threads for every thread you're interested in to get people to reply to both the original one and the one you've created so you'll get the email notification.

@Sean Aaron: You've just confused me. How about I click the "Watch Topic" button in future instead? But anyways: I stand by my point.

I just use the All unread topics link and sift through that. Although I never really do post that much ^^'
