**Problem:** When users mention/ping people, those people are not always informed. This can have several reasons:
- There is a limit to how many people you may mention at once. If you mention more than 20, it is treated as a mistake by the system and no mention is sent out
- Users might have written the user name wrong
Other reasons (see)
Currently, users don't get feedback whether their mentions have worked, so they need to check it manually on the mentioned' people's sites.
**Suggested Solution:** It was suggested in the wishlist to receive a notification, similar to "The article has been saved", saying "You have pinged the XX, YY, ZZ". Ideally, this message should also contain information about why people that should have received a notification did not receive one.
**Background:** This proposal received 22 points (#9) in the German Community Wishlist
