NAF Integration improvement
As most of you have probably seen by now, there are new options to link FUMBBL accounts with NAF accounts. For those of you who have a NAF account from before, it's not a very difficult process to do this: Click the link on your coach page, Click to connect/update the NAF account. This redirects you to the NAF site, where you (probably) log in and then grant access to FUMBBL to get your userid and name. Once done, FUMBBL will be able to store your NAF ID and NAF Name in a secure way (it's using OAuth2 as a communication protocol).

So what does this mean, and why do we need this?

With the advent of NAF Online Ratings on the NAF site, there has been a number of NAF rated tournaments run on FUMBBL. I personally think this is amazing, and love that this is an option both for FUMBBL and for The NAF. To allow this to function, and get matches played on FUMBBL be associated with the appropriate NAF account, coaches have in the past been asked to put their NAF Id and Name on their team bio for each tournament.

This is a manual process both for the coaches playing, and for the organizers, who had to manually input this data and deal with typos and erroneous spellings and mistakes. With this manual method, there was also no real way to be sure that someone on FUMBBL actually is the owner of the NAF account they claimed to be (I don't know if this actually was a problem in practice; haven't heard of any cases of this actually happening).

Either way, from the start it was clear to me that an OAuth-based (or some other standard tech) would be the best way to manage this identity synchronization between FUMBBL and The NAF, and after me pestering Stimme about it during the World Cup, and then again a couple of days ago, Stimme got some help from a friend and got the NAF-side parts to work and FUMBBL coaches can now go through the process to fetch their NAF info and store it on FUMBBL for future participation in NAF rated tournaments on here.

There is a small additional detail to mention: The old manually entered data is still there (and can still technically be managed by the appropriate staff). If you have an account with NAF data that has been manually entered, your coach page will have an "Unverified" tag next to the NAF id. Simply go through the linking process (which doesn't really link the accounts, it just uses the process to securely fetch NAF Id and Name from the NAF site), and the tag will disappear.

NAF Names and IDs will appear on coach pages of anyone who has NAF data registered, but you will not see if it's unverified or not at this stage.

Either way, this is a fairly technical thing to have changed, but it's a lot easier for the NAF staff. I encourage anyone who enters a NAF Online tournament and have a NAF account to go through this connection process to reduce the amount of work they have to do on the admin side (and as a side-effect, ratings will appear quicker on the NAF site after a tournament completes).

It's also possible to re-run this process if your NAF name is changed for some reason.

Thanks Christer.

It requires you to renew your NAF subscription to activate, which is also good!!! :D
Posted by commisaro on 2023-10-03 21:31:27
Woah, your NAF number is 5! 0_o
Posted by Sp00keh on 2023-10-04 09:49:12
Really nice

Could it be possible to link accounts but not do it publicly?
Posted by Christer on 2023-10-04 10:28:00
The purpose of this linking is to allow games you play in NAF Online tournaments to affect your NAF rating. Hiding the connection on here will be fairly pointless as it's trivial to correlate the match records here and on NAF to show the link anyway.

Currently, I have no plans to allow this to be hidden, but this may change if the connection is used for more things than the match results.
Posted by Sp00keh on 2023-10-04 11:55:39
I only mention it because NAF accounts have mostly real names on them
Not everyone wants their real named linked to stuff
Not everyone will play an NAF tournament on fumbbl, but might want to link accounts anyway - I see a lot of people already have linked up regardless

Thanks for the continued work
Posted by Christer on 2023-10-04 12:53:52
This fetches the NAF account name, not the real name. They are different (unless you, like me, use your real name as your NAF account name).
Posted by Sp00keh on 2023-10-04 15:34:11
Yea, I see that. I just mean it creates a link between fumbbl name > NAF name > real name, that didn't necessarily exist before
Posted by Stimme on 2023-10-04 15:55:19
You have the option to now show your real name on your NAF coachpage.

Examples:

Sweet!
And on the Rankings page as well?

Many thanks
Posted by Stimme on 2023-10-04 18:10:00
Should have said "not show" in my previous comment.
It's a global setting, so the real name will not be displayed anywhere to the public.
Posted by Melmoth on 2023-10-04 19:35:38
Very nice feature. Thx a lot Christer
Posted by BeanBelly on 2023-10-06 13:40:32
Thanks Christer. Worked well once I’d logged in to NAF. So for others trying it might go like this for you too: (1) hit the link from FUMBBL to NAF, and log into NAF (2) click the link again FUMBBL to NAF and you land on the verification page

while good to have, I'd like an option to remove the button, and/or if it exists for it to be clearer. I don't have, and likely never will have, a NAF account. But now I have this button for 'connect NAF account' in red right under my name, and it's annoying to have it there all the time getting in my way. I'd like an option in settings to disable it from appearing since I'm never going to need it.

If there is a way to disable it already, I couldn't find it in settings, and I coudln't find it by googling,
