# Post editors are not suggested recipients for @-addressing

There is no username popup suggesting completion when typing an editor's user name prefix.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Find a post by AUser that was edited by UserB
2. Write a comment addressing @UserB

Expected results:

When having typed @U, the completion popup should suggest @UserB

Actual results:

No popup, as if there were no such user in the list of addressable users.

The Meta post on this feature states; while referencing this answer:

Notifications apply to the author, commenters, and editors of the question or answer that you are commenting on—users not in that list cannot be notified. You can also notify a ♦ moderator who closed the question.

The popup can easily be seen as an indicator whether the user whose name I'm typing will receive my message, since, while typing a user's name and the name disappears from the suggestion list, it means I mistyped and the user will not be notified.

This behavior suggests that editors will not be notified at all, while they actually are. This is why I classified this as a bug.

• For some user names, the popup is a helpful indicator whether I type the name correctly at all: I didn't know that @ldigas' user name starts with a lower case L until I attempted to @-address a comment. @I just didn't show the autocompletion. – Daniel Beck Dec 7 '11 at 8:40
