Real-name database on KGS

Thanks to Koffein on KGS there is now a real-name database from KGS players. It contains some well-known and less-known players, including a lot of professional and dan players.

If you can't find out about someone's identity, this source should definitely be the first one to check. Currently it contains 321 players, but I hope in some time it will be expanded even more as this is already the second edition. It contains such top KGS players' as: macisajt, solaris, artem92, LoveHER, breakfast, roln111 just to name a few.

If you know about somebody who is not included in the database, please let Koffein know. You can download the full database from Koffein's info on KGS, or from the following link:

You need Open Office Base to be able to open it. Enjoy!

There is this amazing file format that everyone can open called a CSV or text file.

v3 ( ~350 names ) is available now with a new downloadlink:
(finally away from rapidshare)
i won´t publish any further updates here, pls check my kgs profile for further updates.

i don´t think open office can export the database to another format, atleast i didn´t find any option which means i´d have to manually copy every name into another file. Because of that i´m afraid you have to use open office until someone wants to do that work.

It would be really useful to have a list of the top players on the KGS list who we don't know the real names of ... Aza for example?

I got that list. Nothing special, actually. No sensations, most European players, their egf ratings and real names.

Is it possible for it to be available in any other format - want to download open office :(

Is any player from korean or chinese top 50 on that list?

any sensations? hmm ..
you are on that list too :p

yes, most names are from kgs profiles (double checked with egd to avoid fake names) + some help from a few people

btw, it´s mainly a european database

I believe it's mostly from the sources you mentioned plus personal sources.. might be useful if u wanna contact sby through kgs and dunno his id though.

Any sensations in this list? Or mainly info from open sources? Such as Sensei, KGS profile, GoDiscussions ...
