idk if this is an issue or just me, but how does one tag a user with spaces and or certain symbols? for instance, Ho-Oh and Lugia, and I Liek Squirtles? i can't seem to properly tag them.

For the former you do need to actually paste in the special characters:

@✯Ho-OhLugia✯

For the latter...

@I liek Squirtles

Well, that's weird. Neither of those work, and I'm certain that the first one used to work sometime in the past.
That is a good question.

Edit: Testing a thing:

??? What? I can't be tagged? Then I guess I can't play tag then.

Anyway, does that mean I have to change my username to remove the stars?

In order to tag people with spaces in their username, you have to include quotations around their username in order for the tagging to work.

Code:
Example: @"Username with space here"

It seems like we will need to put quotes around the name if it doesn't have alphanumeric characters.

As proof, I submit that I edited my post above with quotes around the names, and now both of them work.

I referenced my own username without quotes and that worked. But it seems like quotes will work regardless.
