Interestingly or not tried this on a local dev install and it worked as expected on bbp topic textarea, thought no more and uploaded to a staging site where it apparently failed to work, after checking all the obvious, script enqueueing correctly etc found the only difference was I had the bbp textarea toolbar buttons activated, and indeed activating those on the staging site kicked the @mentions into life.

This hack works except that it does NOT work on group created forums. Any ideas on how to fix this?
