I was trying to reference user sushi-just-ask in a submission comment. The markdown engine doesn't recognize it.


<!~sushi-just-ask>

Just shows up as the literal text, and not the user reference with thumbnail.

You have to take out the hyphens. If you're ever unsure, type the name exactly as it appears in their url, eg
https://www.weasyl.com/~sushijustask
<!~sushijustask>

for now that should be able to help you.
Perhaps the parser could do this automajically somehow in future, but I'm not 100% sure.

ok, that works! no hyphens!
