Autocomplete of @ mentions

I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m a little tired of trying to figure out which characters are uppercase i instead of l, a 1 instead of l, or 0 instead of o. That and trying to remember what numbers come after a name.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a list of possible names pop up if you typed @ ?

The forums will already do it automatically. For in game, I suppose one work around would be to look at the player profile, click the button that lets you start a mail to them, then copy or cut the player name, exit out of the email, and paste the result after the @ sign.

But yes, an in game autocomplete would be useful. I’m not sure how well PG would be able to implement it though. You’d want to make it so that it autocompletes based on the “group” you are in (team chat vs alliance chat vs group chat etc.).

Sounds like something that may put a strain on the chat which can be fragile, but if they can implement it without breaking the chat for any users, all the power to them!
