I just hate when people see my nickname as one word, so being able to change it to either "the canine" or "TheCanine" would be cool and I think there are more people, who would also want the chance to capitalize some letters in their nicknames, so if we get capital letters working, there'll be less need for spaces. 🤔

@thecanine I see 😁

@prologic No, if you add display names, that one can freely change as they please, I’ll do so often and push the limit with any and all kinds of unicode I’ll manage to shove in there, like I used to do on other socials. 😂

Sounds like you’re referring to something I’d call “Display Name” 😆

Evidently I am not going to be exchanging that many twts (if anything at all) with someone with a slash on their nick, but it would be nice to either set some "standard", or fix mentions (again?!) to accommodate.

@thecanine No worrries 🤗

Gets kind of difficult to support spaces when a space is the token separates 😂

@prologic I must have miss-clicked, sorry about that. As for the topic of nicknames, I definitely think spaces should be allowed (outside of the beginning and end) and numbers should probably be allowed too, if they aren’t already. 🤔

@thecanine I think you replied in the wrong thread/yarn 😅

The only downside of course is, new discovery. It is impossible to know, reach out to someone new, without them first following you. But that was always a shortcoming before. Do we really need this? Or should “social connections” be organic anyway? I don’t know… 🤔 I’m included personally to rm -rf *webmention* all the code in yarnd as it’s hard to support anyway…

@movq Hmmm after carefully reading your crique, I’m inclined to agree with you with respect to entirely dropping the notion of any kind of “hey I’m trying to mention you here!”. That is to say, the original spec (for all it’s short ocmings), really it’s beauty was the “pull mode” which I really quite like.

So… Can we just decide never to support this at all? And instead expect (which is up to clients really and doesn’t need to be roamlized) clients to keep track of if they’ve been mentioned already be mere fact of parsing feeds they follow?
