I've attempted to make this change a few times and it turns out 3rd time is the charm! You can now type out multiple words to match the game or user you're trying to tag with the @ or # symbol!

You're right. I wasn't allowing special characters but have put in ! and ' now. Are there other common characters that a game could have in the title that we're missing (also note, that if you type in "Clank Legacy" that the game does show up normal.
Another common character is a colon ":" such as #Root: The Underworld Expansion. It's really nice that it'll recognize it even without the special characters though!
Added it to the list!

Can you show me an example? It seems to be working fine for me.
Well it's a little hard to show on mobile but here's a link to #Gloomhaven but spaces don't cut the link. Or using a period. I can even move the cursor elsewhere and still the link will persist... #wingspan only shows expansions btw so it's impossible to link many games. Editing the post still keeps adding to the link. Mobile Firefox.
It's now fixed!
It works on desktop Firefox but not on mobile Firefox.
Unfortunately not for me. Let's try again linking #Gloomhaven. Looks like it won't cut the link... #Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion. Ok so I can remove the link to continue my post but it defeats the point of linking.
This is what it looks like for me:

I know it's been a while but I've done a lot of work to make sure things work on all platforms. Could you try it again?

also i see 1 like minimun for every post but I'm pretty sure they have no likes.
I've tried this with mobile Firefox, Chrome and opera.
1 like minimum is from the person who posts it (you automatically like the post yourself).
Unfortunately it's not working on mobile. The default text stays in the box while I type. The thing I type goes on top of the text. This text box does weird things in general on mobile. It keeps asking me to paste without me even pressing the paste button. Also the linking still doesn't work: #Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion space typing some more. blah blah... 123
Perfect! I'll get to work!

So on mobile it works fine for me but I do have that issue on my laptop, if I do some clever manoeuvring (often typing a single letter/word first and then putting the link in the space) then it does work
