I am an active player on Lichess. I noticed the feature where they show the real life chess title besides the name. Could this be implemented on Chess Stack Exchange? Or is it just not feasible due to low activity of chess masters as compared to Lichess? Could we have a vote for the same?
Perhaps this could be a feature in the "expandable usercard" section of the site. I'm no expert on the coding/work required, but perhaps we could implement the expandable usercard for users with enough reputation and/or have a verified FIDE title. This way, a title, once verified, can always be seen.
Not sure how well the verification process would work. Lichess seems to handle large amounts of request fairly well; it might be a good idea to require a user to be a member of Chess.SE for at least 10? 30? days to minimize spam requests.
Actually, having FIDE ids would be a good start for users who wish to disclose their membership.
