For this question here, How can international students with weak work experience overcome logistical difficulties in seeking work in the United States? , I am unable to tag users as I want to reply to the user who posted the second answer with a clarification.

Typing the @ symbol and the first few letters of his name, does not trigger the autocompletion request. Manually typing his name after the @ symbol does not work either as after I hit save, the @symbol followed by the user name disappears. Could this be a bug?


The owner of the post is automatically notified of all comments on it, so the system "helpfully" removes your "@author-name" text as redundant. This trips up lots of people; you are not alone. The author will get your message, so go ahead and comment.

See How do comment @replies work? for more information.
