Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I was trying to respond to a comment in the following question http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/169746/my-gravatar-is-a-swastika-generate-new-gravatar

I typed the @ followed by da to indicate my response to OP, whose name was damage. I remember that if I press spacebar, the user name usually auto completed but it didn't do it today.

When I initially typed the username's initial characters, the name appeared on the top.

Initial typing

Hitting spacebar did not complete the username

After hitting space bar

Did I do something wrong or am I thinking wrong that spacebar would complete the name?

Browser:

I am using Google Chrome Version 25.0.1364.97 m on Windows 7

Isn't it a tab that does the auto-completion? At least, that works for me (Chrome + Ubuntu).
