My user name was changed when the web was updated (and requesting a referee)

Hi.
It's been a while since I last entered RetroUprising.
I came back here to watch my old replays, and I found out that my user was changed when the web page was updated.
The thing was that my original user name included "á", because my name is Hernán, and that apparently cut the name there when everything was reset.
Either I'd like to have my old user name back, or have a new one, that could be "Her", that is my nickname amongst my friends.
But "Hern" doesn't mean anything. It's just a little more than half my name, and it doesn't make sense in spanish (grammatically speaking).
Is there a way to change it? Or must anyone else do it for me?
Please, admins... help

Other thing that's been bothering me is that long SNES replays appear to be broken. I recently tried to watch a couple of them with a friend, but half-way through the input they become unstable and everything goes out of sync.
Is there a way to fix this?
Otherwise, can I just download them and watch them in my PC?

And another thing, and this one is the most important one:
It's about a particular game that I care about a lot, but I'd prefer not to discuss it in public because it involves another user, who I don't know personally and who I don't have nothing against. It's just about that particular game.
I'd like to talk about it with a referee, if possible, via private messages.
How can I contact one of them? (it's a NES game).

Thanks.

I shall try Hernán, it may bork the system though so no promises.

Looks like it worked.

As for the SNES playback, we are aware of the issue and it is being worked on.

As for a referee to contact, send a PM to the user "Wolf", he's got nothing better to do.

Re: My user name was changed when the web was updated (and requesting a referee)

Hi.

It's been 10 days since I wrote to Wolf and I still got no reply.
Maybe he hasn't got the time to checking the submissions, because they are fairly long. I can understand that, and it's fine.
I tried writing to Elrod21 because I remember him from 2.013, but maybe he isn't a ref anymore.
Anyone knows how to contact a ref and get a reply?

It's about a specific score, and it involves the site's rules, but it also involves another user, so I'd like to talk about it privately.
The only thing I can say is that a score of mine, done following RU rules (which I talked via PM's with refs back then), was beaten, and that I think the new record breaks some RU rules.
I tried to contact a ref to see if something can be done, but if I still can't get a reply, I'll be obligated to post about it in the forum. I don't like that idea very much, because I believe that talking publicly about another player's submission, giving user name and everything, would be rude, and I have nothing against anyone.
So, if everything continues to be the same, the only remaining possible thing for me will be to play again. But I don't like that idea, either. I can easily triplicate or quadruplicate the current record, but I believe the game's competition would be ruined that way because it would become a matter of who leeches the most.

Long story short, a couple years ago I was allowed to do some point pressing in specific spots at a given game, for 1 life until time ran out, making a total of 2 lives of point pressing in my submission, on which I beat the game; while the current 1st place submission leeched for 8 complete lives, 5 of them in the same spot, not to mention a good amount of partial leeching in several lives, beating my score for a few points, then quitting the game soon.
I believe it's unfair (in terms of fair play).

Any help is welcome.

Thanks.
