It's adding semicolons after doublequotes that follow at signs.

These don't show up if you go to edit the post.
It's also trying to parse the at signs as if they were callouts for user names. It doesn't send the notifications, though.

some testing
@()
@("test")
@aioua
@"aioua"
@test"test"
@""""
@test test "test"
@test
"test"

life's a game that you're bound to lose / like using a hammer to pound in screws
fuck up once and you break your thumb / if you're happy at all then you're god damn dumb
that's right we're on a fucked up cruise / God is dead but at least we have booze
bad things happen, no one knows why / the sun burns out and everyone dies

    This is now occurring in quote blocks as well

    Yeah it's been like this for a while, the '@' symbol fucks with it and the regex around the code stuff.

    not a doctor, not a lawyer, examples I use may not be fully researched so don't take out of context plz, don't @ me

    Apparently the people with spaces in their name are still getting the notification, its just the link to their profile that's broken.

    At least for the ones I did today.

    It's a visual glitch, the right user is still kicked.

    @nospace

    @name with space

    @("test")
    @nospace
    
    @"name with space"
    
    @("test")
    




    EDIT: I noticed the problem with normal quote-wrapped at mentions got fixed at some point, so I though I'd test the other cases
    still parsing in code blocks, still flipping out and adding semicolons if there's an @ and a " adjacent

    I'm having a problem were after I did an @ the bar that you can click to autocomplete the name keeps popping up. Every time I hit "Enter" it erases the last word I wrote and instead inserts the name in the @ bar.

    This sounds similar to the smiley face thing, where if you didn't do one of the "first-class" faces, then it would keep that popup of the suggested faces and you couldn't ever hit Enter.

    As a workaround, does hitting Escape when the autocomplete bar is up get rid of the bar (at least temporarily)? Which let's you Enter when you need to?

    Yeah there are still two things
    @"name"
    
    that parses, though it shouldn't

    and

    @fkdjfkd"

    that gets all kinds of weird, I didn't type a semicolon there
