    A problem with my name

    My name is Nick van der Vis, but for some reason it will show as Nick Vis on all of the scores I submitted so far. Is there any way I can fix this myself? (i checked my settings already, but couldn't find anything useful there. maybe i just missed it. if that's the case, please point out where exactly i'd find it?)

    If you make any changes to your personal info, signature, you have to reverify your account. I can see you have 1,025 credibility

    i didn't change anything, i just suddenly couldn't see them anymore.
    (i'm talking about at the top of the page, i know i can see my credibility on the side here, but no submission points.)

    ... because you're dealing with a scoreboard that has not been programmed to understand surnames can be multiple words. There is a built-in assumption that any words in between the first & last are "middle names" or something similar.

    Are you on my radar?
    I'd rather be last on every game than throw my time away chasing only one score.

    I'm not someone that can guarantee one way or the other. What we can do is keep talking about it until someone @ TG comments and acknowledges the problem. :)

    For example, when I submit a score as one of the team accounts I am a member of the post shows the first name of the first person and the surname of the last person. So, for example, "Andrew Peter and Lucianna Myfanwy Mee" gets posted as just "Andrew Mee". :(

    Are you on my radar?
