    I have a similar issue: I am showing as "Eric" instead of "Eric P" I thought I knew who i was, but now I'm not sure. I guess if all of the other Eric's have a last initial, it is ok, but in case this is a symptom of a larger problem I thought you should know. Thanks

    How about David P. or FFG. The way it is now, even I don't know who I am) Thanks again.

    Who should I ask about this?

    Yeah, this is a bit weird. In prior years, if two people had the same first name, they both had a last initial shown. Otherwise, it was just first names. However, this year, we have people who have the same first names as others without the initial. And Kris N gets a last initial, in spite of being the only Kris on the board.

    However, it looks like obscurerichard is already on this one, so I'll leave him to do his job.

    The current algorithm in use is to use only a first name if it is unique among the participants, and to disambiguate using one or more letters from the last name.

    I think it would be good to allow logged in users to update their display name without having to get the administrators involved.

    The issue is, it's not working that way. See my comment, above.

    It looks like the first to register gets the unadorned name. I can change yours to Eric P now though.

    God bless @obscurerichard for taking this on. He's spending an incredible amount of time, night/day/weekend on all of this. I am completely swamped at work, so I have absolutely zero regrets for stepping away from this madness -- Except that I feel bad for Richard (especially where lack of documentation etc. adds to the learning curve of the current software). A lot of external deps changed this year, though -- changes to Strava authorization being particularly significant and disappearance of wunderground for weather data. So this is no small effort. And, of course, he's doing this almost completely alone.

    If you don't mind, that would be great. And a million thanks for all that you are doing!

    I finally got my dev environment working yesterday, so I'll be helping a bit more from here on out, but not nearly as much as I'd like to. As always, anyone with coding experience (Especially Python) is very welcome to help out with the website and backend.

    One of the downsides of being obscure.
