    My username is linked to another profile.

    Hey guys for some reason my username is linked to another profile.
    If you click on it it takes you to View Profile: marco324 - Wiihacks - Nintendo Wii Hacks Community which is not me.
    The correct link would be http://www.wiihacks.com/members/marco-.html

    Maybe you guys can help me?
    Not sure if it's because the "!" on it? I noticed the "-" in the link... so if it is, you can change my username to ndolphin64

    Let me know! Thanks again

    It's definitely because of the "!" in your username.

    hmm....aside from changing your nick I am not sure if that is something I can fix. I will send this to the server Admin and see what he can do.

    That's exactly what you'd have to do. Somewhere buried in the mod section at one time Gen3SF posted about the issue. Any user with "non-standard" characters will cause the profile to not display with that particular user's name (instead, something similar but not the same). I believe the conversation also involved fatal's input by way of Gen. "nothing can be done."

    Indeed. Those unfamiliar characters act like wildcards when it tries to index a username, so it will try to find the next familiar character.

    While we generally do not allow name changes, I will make an exception do to the circumstances. It appears that ndolphin64 is available. Once you acknowledge that you have seen this message I will change it. You will not be able to log in with Marco! anymore but your posts and stats will all still be the same.
