Family (Last) Names of users

The new procedure for URLs needs last names (Family names) of users.

Therefore Rad needs to check for all EconomicBlogs:

  • That the last name is not empty
  • We would like one single word as family name,
    • We don’t like : G. Holcombe as last name, leave this a Holcombe
No Multiple Last Name
  • Family names of none persons shall be written in one word.
    • Example: Wall Street Journal becomes
      First Name: Journal
      Last Name: WallStreet


Help: You can see the family name in easily in the user overview. When there are two words and it its a real person then all is fine, you do not need to edit.

Family Name
Normal case Example: Scott Sumner

Exception1: For all none-persons like “Spiegel”, “Spott Money”, “The National Interest”, “The Telegraph”, you need to use one word like “SprottMoney”
no “the” in this word

Family Names will be : Spiegel, SprottMoney, NationalInterest, Telegraph

Exception2: Multiple writer in one user



Use Nickname for Central Banks

Central Banks are also organisations. Here we use the short names: SNB, RBA, RBNZ, ECB.



Set Last Names of Multi user

add the two or three family names with “-”

First name is empty
