This post is just a test.
Some usernames of members are made of two or more "words" separated with one or more spaces. The symbol @ has been used as a link to profile page for the named member, but not clear if the spaces interfere with this link expressiveness.
@membername1234
@membername 1234
@membername_1234
@membername-1234

A specific example, actual membername needs to be used.
@Aufbauwerk 2045
@Aufbauwerk2045
@Aufbauwerk_2045
@Aufbauwerk-2045
Actual member's username is Aufbauwerk 2045 .

And there it is! The form needs to be @word01 word02 .
That's if member's name is word01 word02 .
