1. @widget do you have an idea why my !solarempire references don't work?

    1. @kamikaze You're not among the members.

      1. @nerthos So what, I cannot reference groups I'm not a member of? I can reference ponies I'm not subscribed to just fine!

        1. @kamikaze For groups you can't without joining.

          Friday, 18-Jan-13 06:05:27 UTC from web
        2. @kamikaze You have to be a member of a group to post to it. It's not a mention, the post becomes part of the group.

          1. @toksyuryel Well, I don't want to be part of the !solarempire or even post TO it. I just want ponies to be able to click a link so they can see what I'm talking about.

        3. @kamikaze You could, though, use a # instead of a !, since ! mentions show when you click the # tag fr a word.

          1. @nerthos Didn't know that, test: #

            Friday, 18-Jan-13 06:08:02 UTC from web
            1. @kamikaze That didn't work, test 2: #

          2. @nerthos OK, however it doesn't know about aliases and it doesn't lead ponies to the group, which was my original intent.

            Friday, 18-Jan-13 06:10:50 UTC from web
            1. @kamikaze Because apparently there are no posts in that refer to the group as !se.

              Friday, 18-Jan-13 06:12:44 UTC from web
              1. @nerthos Even if they were, it wouldn't show !solarempire posts along with !se posts.

                Friday, 18-Jan-13 06:13:41 UTC from web
                1. @kamikaze It wouldn't.

                  Friday, 18-Jan-13 06:14:03 UTC from web
        4. @kamikaze correct. you must be a member of a group to use their tag

          Friday, 18-Jan-13 06:11:04 UTC from web
          1. We're moving in circles. I don't want to be a member of the group, I just want to reference it. Clearly what I want cannot be done.

            Friday, 18-Jan-13 06:12:11 UTC from web
            1. @kamikaze yup

              Friday, 18-Jan-13 06:12:36 UTC from web
            2. @kamikaze

              Friday, 18-Jan-13 06:13:13 UTC from web
              1. @nerthos That's nowhere near as smooth as referencing the !lunarrepublic.

                Friday, 18-Jan-13 06:14:22 UTC from web
                1. @kamikaze Totally. !lunarrepublic is best republic.

                  Friday, 18-Jan-13 06:14:58 UTC from web
                  1. @nerthos Without a doubt.
