Stated to be for the 3.3.0 serie.

The extensions door is always open though. ;)
Uhh, following that ticket now.
I'm very pleased to see someone take initiative, even though its early days still.

To resume:

- A new [mention][/mention] bbcode
- A new popup-up when you start writing @ after a space if you are in WYSIWYG mode
- @mention parsed automatically when the post is submitted (with a checkbox and an option to disable it, like for the smileys)
Just to add to this my suggestions:
- Have an option to be able to get mentioned by friends only AND/OR being not able to be mentioned at all.
- When we start typing afterwards @ it will prioritize our friend list people first.
- Maybe have a little search done when first character is typed after @ to check if any usernames that start with that character first before fetching avatars. Show only 5-10 usernames in the popup who's avatar will be shown (and loaded). Hopefully this will reduce the load and make it faster.
