Mentioning or notifying a user in a comment with @ does not display First/Last Name but login username


We are quite perplexed how this functionality has been implemented.

Using the @John Smith in a comment returns this ~smithj instead of John Smith.

If this is the way it is... then please escalate as the functionality is not helpful as is.
