 Your name was not displayed as anything because you removed the name from
 your profile.

 I fixed it by typing in your name properly (that appears to be an o with
 an umlaut to me, if I'm mistaken let me know) and setting your display
 name to that. Then it shows up correctly in both the profiles and on the

 The forums do support displaying other characters in display names, but if
 the name was entered before the fixes last year, then they may need to be
 resaved in order for them to be saved and used correctly.
