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
      Mention1.jpg
    2. Click once on the name to highlight it
      Mention2.jpg

    3. Click somewhere inside the text of the name
      Mention3.jpg
    4. Use the <Delete> key to remove the last name
      Mention4.jpg
    5. Click away from the name

     

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

    Neil "Crazy Legs" Mussett
