Last initial

Could you ad the ability display the last initial of a player instead of the whole last name? I have too many mikes and I don't want to put last names on the web. Thanks for all your hard work.

I just make the "nickname" for each player his/her first name with last initial.  Then I display nickname.

This way I can always alter a nickname when I have players with same first name and same last initial.  Happens fairly often.

Name Format button on Preferences tab.  Select "First name last initial" format.

sweet...I was using the nickname as a work around. thanks

works for in game stuff like the seating, which solves one problem. I was more hoping for exporting ti html, but the nickname works well too. thanks again.

Whenever you use the Name field (as opposed to the Firstname, Lastname, or Nickname fields), you'll get it in the format chosen, even when you export.  Are you seeing something different?
