If mentioning a built-in trust level group, like
@basic_members — does that include higher trust levels or not? To me,
@basic_members, sounds as if higher trust levels are not included. However, if someone types
@full_members, then that sounds as if higher trust levels, are included?
Maybe, to avoid these confusing things, the autocomplete usernames for group mentions could be like
@basic_members_and_higher_trust_levels? Then it's pretty clear which people are getting mentioned & notified?
Mentioning such large groups is done so very infrequently (maybe should be allowed for staff only), so having those rather long mentions (
@basic_members_and_higher_trust_levels is many characters long), barely matters.

I did this: If one mentions
@basic_members, then only those groups are notified. Not
@full_membersand higher trust levels.
Because "new members" sounds as if it does not include full members and regular members etc — those aren't new. They are instead a bit long time members.
@full_members, does notify higher trust levels too. Because "full members" sounds as if includes higher trust levels. After all, a trusted member, is also a full member, of course (but it's not a new member). So maybe then, the least surprising behavior, is to yes include them. And in the same way,
@trusted_membersincludes the higher trust levels:
So everything works the way one would expect it to work, if one didn't know anything about trust levels or that they exist at all.ReplySolution
