Is it possible to add an alias to a name in Trello, so that I can know who the person is?

It's not possible at the moment for one user to tag an alias onto another user, but associated with a user account is a full name and a username and an avatar, so they have plenty of opportunity to present a real world identity and a username of their choice. Assuming they wish to be 'known' in the first place.

To be honest other users identities are not exactly well hidden in my opinion - when you hover over a user's avatar, a tooltip shows Full name (username). For this to be useful, I'd strongly recommend that for the benefit of team participation, users enter their real name in the 'full name' field.

That does not technically solve the problem at all... – TiansHUo Mar 7 '12 at 0:55
True - but it answers your question - ie It's not possible – Roger Attrill Mar 7 '12 at 7:30
