Message thing broken

The message system that recognises usernames when you type the first 3 or so letters is broken.

This is a very recent thing.

Please fix

I wonder if it is a permissions thing.  It works when I start to type piz... but no one else.

I see the problem. It's SMF being... well, being SMF. It will only work for members whose names start in lowercase (so it works for pizaaplanet, rooster and junker; but not for Parsifal or Thork). I'll see what I can do about it.
There is free speech and there is being an annoying twat. This user is exercising his right to the latter.

Fixed. Is it working for you now, Thork?

It works as long as I start typing the name in the proper case.  It may have worked that way all along as I hadn't tried.

Yes, it would do that. It only just occurred to me that people might want to use it in a case-insensitive manner. Fixed.

Perfect, thank you.

Consider the matter closed.
