Mention someone using their first name

Version 2

    Have you ever seen someone @mention someone using just their first name (or a nickname)? Ever wonder how it's done? Here you go!


    If I want to mention my friend "Louie Ingle", but I want it to appear as "Louie", I can do the following:


    1. @mention the whole name as normal
    2. Click once on the name to highlight it

    3. Click somewhere inside the text of the name
    4. Use the <Delete> key to remove the last name
    5. Click away from the name


    You can also insert text into the name if you would like:

    Neil "Crazy Legs" Mussett
