    User mention system on short user names

    I wonder if there is a limit on the number of characters a user name have to be to have the user mention system kick in after an @? I have a few admin user names that are two characters and a handful of user names that are three characters. Since my site is fairly small I dont think there would be a performance issue letting the user mention system work from two characters up. Can I adjust a setting for this somewhere?

    It's hardcoded to 3 characters. You have to edit ckeditor-rollup.js to change it and do it every time you upgrade. I think there's a JIRA to make the character limit configurable.
