I am pretty sure, that it was a conscious decision, that you searched only through the users of the current project. Most likely this is due to the performance of the search. But actually this limits the use for everything, which is public. Especially it lowers the use in the Discussion Tool. Because there everyone wants to mention everyone else.

Is there a chance to change this?

    Yea performance would have to be a consideration for autocompleting all usernames. We do have [#8293] with the idea of suggesting other people who have participated on the thread already.

    Additionally its worth noting that you can type @anyone and even if it doesn't autocomplete I believe it'll still notify them and be a link when saved.

    Correct, this works. But it is so unintuitive, that people aren't doing it.
    [#8293] would also be great.

    Another cracy idea...
    Why not doing a search in the following order:

    • search in the project
    • if we found nothing: search in the thread
    • if we still found nothing: search in all users

    I played around a bit with it. And to overcome the performance issue, I now delayed the display of the result. Might sound insane, but to me this doesn't feel wrong. Because the tooltip just displays recommendations, and no exact match.
    https://forge-allura.apache.org/u/labi/allura/

    And I only start searching globally, if nothing was found in the project user list.
