T267680: Do not show "self" in username suggestion list

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

Hello, It's me again :D Again, it's awesome. One thing I noticed and I hope it would be easy to fix is that when I open the menu to ping people, it gives me a list of suggestions which is usually users who participated in the discussion. The problem is that if I participated in the discussion already, my name also shows up there which doesn't make much sense. Also removing it reduces the cognitive burden of choosing the right user from the list. Thanks again!

Yes, I noticed that too.

Great spot, @Ladsgroup – thank you for saying something about this. I agree the username suggestion list should work as you are describing.

This is the ticket where work to adapt it to function in this way is here: phab:T267680.
