BBO User Names File


BBO User Names File

A user names file can be used in the webapp BBOtoXML to convert BBO user names to their real names. The file must be in the following format:

#names
bboname,firstname,surname,nationalID

where bboname is a user's name on BBO, firstname and surname is user's actual name.

The nationalID field is optional and, if present, is the national ID of the player (e.g. EBU number).

When used for EBU UMS, nationalID should be present for all users, even those without an EBU number. The users without an EBU number should have 88888888 in this field to avoid problems with the UMS upload.

Trailing commas are allowed at the end of the line.

The names file should have a .txt file name extension.
