Fixed Tagging with Parentheses Doesn't Work

    If I want to tag @Jeremy, for example, and put it in parentheses, it won't make a hyperlink; because of that, I don't think the recipient of the tag is alerted.

    Here is an example: A lot of the staff on XenForo are helpful (especially @Jeremy).

    Edit - 9:26 AM (PST): Okay, that's odd. It didn't work when I tried tagging @Mike the other day with his username in parentheses.

    I actually tweaked this earlier, but it's specific to double stacking certain punctuation:


    When punctuation is followed by something other than a space, we don't treat it as a "break" in tagging unless it's followed by specific characters. I've added ) to this second character list, though not rolled it out here yet.

    This is where it didn't tag.

    I originally had (which I learned how to do thanks to @Mike!). Maybe it's the exclamation point.

    We posted at the same time. Oops.

    Anyway, got it. Thanks!
