This task is about preventing the username suggestion list (T232601) from opening if the @ is preceded by a non-whitespace character.
This way, people can type things like email addresses and article names (e.g. 3D@Home) without having to interact with the username suggestion list.
This issue was reported by @Thryduulf at en.wiki here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Talk_pages_project#Feedback_request:_pinging_and_other_tools_in_source_mode.
- Open the Reply or New Discussion Tool's Visual mode
- Type: hello@
- Notice that upon typing @, the username suggestion list appears
- ✅ Notice that upon typing @, the username suggestion list does NOT appear
Note: the behavior above should also apply to the two tools' Source modes once T257391 is implemented.
- The 'Desired behavior" is implemented
- @Thryduulf is notified
