Member profile problem - FIXED

Hey Guys.

Howcome when I click on my member profile it gives me another persons details!

I am registered as Sarah~ but when you click on my info I get Sarah details come up. I know same name but I thought the ~ at the end would make a difference.
I have tried to edit it and it saves ok, but still appears wrong.

Do I have to re-register under another name?

Re: Member profile problem

The tilde may not be a character that the forum recognises, this would be best posted in forum/board comments.

i'll ask a mod to move it for you
