    I have a username whose username starts with a [ but when someone tries to mention him with like @[username] it doesn't work. Any suggestions how to fix this?

    Missed that, searched on mentions :) Will ask the user to change his name if he would like to receive mentions then :)

    And to prevent similar issues in the future you can setup a regexp to only allow letters, numbers and underscores for nicknames.
