BASEPAGENAME doesn't give the username on Flow Topic pages
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Some templates that are intended for user talk pages use {{BASEPAGENAME}} to say something like "Hello, username". This doesn't work when a Flow topic is shown alone—the GUID is shown instead.

I couldn't find another magic word that can replace BASEPAGENAME in a robust way.

I don't want to make this task too technical and solution-oriented, but to focus on the problem: there should be a convenient and robust way to auto-insert the username of the intended recipient, which will work in all contexts. It can be a magic word, or something else.
