Just two questions
1. Where in the ACP can we find the setting to turn on/off the mentioning users feature in post?
2. We presently use the mod on 3.X to mention user so I am glad to see a native(and hopefully less buggy) built-in aspect However when I try to do a mass tagging(with a bunch of my members names) that I copied and pasted,,,,,it does not tag them. Just posts as plain text. So would we have to manually type them out OR is there a way to copy and paste the user's names to tag them?
(This is where I hope either IPS makes it where we can tag usergroups or one of our fabulous devs makes a mod to extend the native @ feature)Thanks!
I use the the @mentions feature as well, I've actually yet to experience any bugs with it? However, on 3.4 series simply typing @ then the usernames links to the user profile, shows the user card and parses when post is submitted.
On 4.0 you need to type (@ symbol) then the username in lowercase and wait for the list to appear and select the member, it's a bit cumbersome, I don't know why it can't work in a similar fashion.
Actually you'll also find that if you type @ then a member name or some random text you'll be prevented from hitting enter to add a new line.
How it looks on IPS4

I raised this a while ago, unfortunately the system in v4 doesn't work in that way, you have to wait for the drop down and click their name. No one else seemed to think this was a problem at the time I'm afraid :)
@bigPaws - I've mentioned it a few times, IPS implementation into the core is most welcome but could be improved.
That sounds like a bug to me
It's been reported @Mark - the only thing I didn't report on that, was the issue with the drop down and not being able to just type the @ sign followed by the members name.
