When I click on my profile different user?

When I click on my username to pull up my profile it instead shows the banned member thing-fish24(2) name.

It's because of the dash and parens in your username. When this came up in another thread recently, IBobi said the only workaround for DVD Talk's forum is to have the special characters removed from your username.

Wow, quick response. Can I just change my name to DVDjunkie78? My original username was DVDjunkie21 but that doesn't quite fit anymore. If not, it's ok to remove the special characters. :-)

I would avoid any variant of "dvdjunkie" as a user name. There's a well-known user with that handle.

I'm changing it to be DVDho78DTS now. This might take a few minutes to complete. I'm also not sure if the profile link will work immediately or if there'll be a little bit of lag time.

Edit - seems to be good to go!

I believe this is our most popular forum.

It's way better than other.
