User Name Problem, Please Help ASAP Answered

Hi.. I joined today using username while joining I got user anem as it was written in Gmail, ie, "mChakraborty" In Profile section I see I can change my user name to something else, and its one time changeable only.
I change my user name 'mchakraborty' to "SunShine®" YES! I exactly wriiten that. But after updating the name looks like "SunShine®"
Now that's not what I want as a user name, I m a active elite member in H33T.COM and in several other site, if the username didn't back to its original shape i.e "SunShine®" then I cant guide my followers, friends and others to this site nor I can tag, even bad, they will not recognize me even they are here!

Please change / edit the user name as soon as possible! I can't upload any of my case mod pictures using this user name.

NB: "SunShine®" ---> I want this as my user name! it was available at the time when I searched..

thanks & regards : Me :)

kelseymh and kiteman have your answers. Your username comes up just like you requested, however non-standard characters (almost everything that's not on a standard English keyboard) will be replaced with other characters that computers read differently than humans. We cannot change the site to accept non-standard characters in the URL string.

Also, as suggested, I have removed your personal contact information from this posting. If you have any further questions please let us know.

You should not use non-standard characters. They aren't allowed in URLs, and have to be translated to something acceptable. That translation may not be what you wish.

Looking at the stats panel, your username appears as you prefer.

I strongly suggest you edit your topic posting - it is very unwise to publish your contact details in plain text.
