What are the rules of pinging? You can ping a user on comments and in chat, but the rules for doing so aren't clear.
- You can ping a user by commenting on his post and by writing
@usernamein a group of comments he previously commented in, but can you ping someone who has not previously commented?
- I've seen many people try (myself among them!) to ping a person in a question or answer by writing
@usernamein the question/answer -- does that work?
- Pinging someone in chat -- only if they have participated in chat before?
