Correct. Also, the process of running through all of the usernames and then trimming out the whitespace every time someone goes to tag. This board alone would have to run an operation like that against 8000 members. It's just not too efficient, thanks for the idea anyway though. Anything that would require something like that would have to be avoided.
I took IcyMx's suggestion for that. I've already pretty much
(nicked some regex...) for the tagging function. Works perfectly for @Username, and @[User Name]. So unless a better option is figured out, that's how it'll be.
I took Crystal's suggestion and the @ is stripped out after tagging someone. It just leaves a link to their username. I do feel it looks cleanest this way.
