That's not something we can do on our side. That's a Minecraft thing for Microsoft. I hope you are able to get it changed!

Yeah. I thought the same thing too. But this is the only place that my name has that minus symbol at.

Sorry for my delay in replying, this is caused here to prevent possible clashes with names when users change their username to one that we've previously seen before (since we only update usernames on the site once you connect to the server there's a possibility you might be taking the Minecraft name of a user which has a site account matching that name, but which they've just never updated by connecting to the server. (Essentially resulting in 2 people trying to have the same name here on Noobscraft; the original person with that name, and then the new person who now has that name in Minecraft) To prevent possible issues if we've seen the name before in certain situations it gets prefixed here on the site with the dash temporarily).

Since there isn't anyone else with that name on the site at this time I have now fixed your name here; you will have been emailed with new login information. Hopefully that's resolved things for you, but do let me know if you need further help with it, or want further clarification :).
