Resolved Can't get the placeholders to work

I'm trying to make it so that players get a prefix that shows what element they chose but this happens:
3886

this is through PermissionsEx
groups:
default:
options:
default: true
prefix: '&8[{ElementColor}{Element}&8] &r'
this is my languages.yml file (i tried it both enabled and disabled and it still doesn't working)
Chat:
Enable: true
Format: '<elementcolor><element> <name>: <message>'
Colors:
Spirit: DARK_AQUA
SpiritSub: DARK_PURPLE
LightSpirit: AQUA
LightSpiritSub: WHITE
DarkSpirit: BLUE
DarkSpiritSub: DARK_GRAY
Avatar: DARK_PURPLE
Air: GRAY
AirSub: DARK_GRAY
Water: AQUA
WaterSub: DARK_AQUA
Earth: GREEN
EarthSub: DARK_GREEN
Fire: RED
FireSub: DARK_RED
Chi: GOLD
and this is my EssentialsChat
format: '{DISPLAYNAME}:&r {MESSAGE}'
#format: '&7[{GROUP}]&r {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
#format: '&7{PREFIX}&r {DISPLAYNAME}&r &7{SUFFIX}&r: {MESSAGE}'

group-formats:
# Default: '{WORLDNAME} {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
# Admins: '{WORLDNAME} &c[{GROUP}]&r {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&c {MESSAGE}'

Plugins installed:

You should put the prefix in the chat formatting of essentials. And be sure to use fully uppercase placeholders.

Hey! So I deleted the prefix from PermissionsEx and did this on Essentials:
format: '[{ELEMENTCOLOR}{ELEMENT}] {DISPLAYNAME}:&r {MESSAGE}'
#format: '&7[{GROUP}]&r {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
#format: '&7{PREFIX}&r {DISPLAYNAME}&r &7{SUFFIX}&r: {MESSAGE}'
and it turned out to this:
3888

Seems like there is something else going on then, because even your square brackets aren't showing up in the formatting. If they were, then it may be a PK issue, but they don't come up as well.
