Commenting in a PR is non intuitive

I generally @ people all the time in a PR. In most cases, the suggestions seem to be ordered in a weird order.

I would like to see it made a bit smarter.

  • When first pressing “@”, the first suggestion is myself, which is a bit weird, I would expect it to be the person I am replying to.
  • When I want to refine the search and reply to the person, I press “d”, but then it puts the person “datouzan” 3 down, and I have to type “@dato” to find them. Yes, I could press the down arrow, but to me, if it makes the suggestion as the second person, I would think that pressing ‘d’ would then have them show first, and pressing d is easier than the down arrow.

Yes, very minor, but if you are writing a lot of comments each day, the micro annoyances add up.
