Can't message groups that you cannot mention

(Jay Pfaffman) #1

Continuing the discussion from Split into two settings: "Who can message and @mention this group?":

It seems that in order to be able to message a group you must also have to be able to @mention it. If you cannot @mention a group it won’t be recommended in the auto-complete list of users; you can, however, type the group’s whole name and be able to message the group.

Now that @mention and message are separate settings, it seems like a bug that completion on the message interface works only if you can also @mention the group.

Possibly, what do you think @tgxworld?

To confirm on meta @team can be messaged and not mentioned per:


My wonderful sock account can not message meta, cause I can not pick @team when creating a message. Something is coupled incorrectly.
