Names not showing up in the "To:" field of PMs

Apologies if this has already been asked or answered; I looked around and didn't find anything.

Usually when I go to send a PM and start typing the Elliquiy member name in the "To:" field, a list of possible names comes up, growing shorter as it narrows down until I type enough that the list is down to just 1 name.  Then I click on the name.

Now when I start typing, nothing happens.  I tried sending a PM to someone just by typing the member name, but then I noticed when I was replying to a PM, the  member name was in the "To:" field with quotation marks around it.

So has something been changed?  And/or do I need to put a member name in quotations for it to be received?

Have you switched browsers or if not have you tried refreshing your browser?


Well, that's interesting.  I'm using Chrome, have always used Chrome. I tried refreshing, closing and re-opening, still the same thing.  But I opened Internet Explorer and logged on to Elliquiy and it worked fine.  So not sure if it's Chrome, or just my copy of Chrome (probably the latter).



Chrome breaks things, repeatedly. It might work again next update : /

Chrome is persnickety.  I don't know why I thought of the browser but I'm glad it worked.


Well, Google plays very fast and loose with updates to it.

They're right about the browser. I use a smartphone on E. But if I use my stock browser or Dolphin, the list shows, if I use Opera Mini, it doesn't show. There's several other things that don't work on Opera Mini. I really only use it because it's a lot faster than the other two. Then if I'm actually posting or doing something that requires coding, I use one of the others.
