See: https://devzone.nordicsemi.com/f/nordic-q-a/42606/nrf52840-doesn-t-advertise/166030#166030 - where I tried to @ mention Cyril but got cyril instead!
And no, it's not just a matter of typing the upper- or lower-case 'C' - the forum ignores that and suggests only the one name!

Hi awneillooks like there's some confusion around usernames vs display names?Strange about the whitespace and casing though.I'll look into things and try to find out what's going on. Cheers;
Yes - that's it.
But the Forum really doesn't provide a way to find the real username from the "display" name.
I have sometimes managed to get around the whitespace issue by "guessing" the real username (from the user's profile page) - but it doesn't always work ...
Another example here:
@Simon gives me several posssible names:
But none of them is the Simon that I was looking for!
1) there's something with users that have a space (" ") in their display names:
For example @firstname Lastame - typing @First with a space the user is not returned when @mentioning.
What we’ve found is that when typing @first name lastname in quick succession the user is returned despite there being a space. But if the user hesitates on the space for a moment the @mention functionality stops its search and fails to find the user. @mentioning would be improved with more of a timeout when inserting @firstname lastname.
2) In some cases, the user you want to @mention has not been designated a display name, or his displayname id the same as his username.Therefore you will not see the common displayname (username) in brackets, in the @mention search list. This could be overcome by us making it mandatory for users to create a displayname on sign up.
Anyways;I’ll ensure this gets raised as a product enhancement. Any comments on the above let me know.
