Name Pinging in Chat

Recommended Posts

As most of you probably know, if you say someone's name in chat, on that user's end, they will receive a ping sound to notify them they're being talked to. However, when you add a comma next to that person's name, they aren't pinged. For example, if someone says "JavaLikesAgua, hi!", I will receive no ping sound (or see "*") and will rely solely on silently reading chat when my name is mentioned. If someone says, "JavaLikesAgua hi!", I get a ping. Many of us talk with the comma directly after the name.

My idea is to change it so the comma is discounted in reading whether or not to send a ping to the person on their end (however it works). This way, guests will more easily see answers sent to them. Just something that could be added.
