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 ~~ I found something interesting, my username is 'cyril' and that Cyril's username is 'fouge' I think.
The forum returns same mention list if you access below URLs
Hope this helps you guys figure out the root cause ~~

I've tried that, but never got it to work yet.
I found yet another issues with @ mentions recently:
The originator of this post has just a 2-letter username - "Ad":
The forum doesn't offer any names even close to that:
Hi cyril, looking closely you'll see that is because you are both actually @'ed in those two posts :-)
"Ad" must be an old user. The OOTB setting to kick off the search for usernames in @'ing situations, is 3 characters. This can't be changed, but the minimum username length can. In our case, the latter setting was 2 characters - to support old usernames that needed to be migrated (re-created). So I guess we'll set it back to 3, provided that won't affect existing users. Of course, that will not help the ones with old, 2-letter username. They will remain unmentionable.

Just found another truly bizarre one - If I try to @mention Fred as "@Fred" it gives completely the wrong name:
The actual name is "Computerguided" - not "Fred" at all!!
How on earth are users supposed to work that out?!?!
