Over the years I've seen several requests on these fora for a nickname field and a weekly Notify Me option. I established my '58 site almost 12 years ago and never had such a request from my classmates. I established a site for the class of '62 this past weekend and have already had requests for both. Hopefully, they will both work their way up the wish list once the much more pressing issues are resolved.

They are still on the list.

Any update on when this might be implemented?

I don't feel a nickname field is needed. It's easy to add a nickname in quotes after the first name in the first name field. We have several examples in our Classmate Profiles list:

John "Doogee" Dlugos
Bruce "Smokey" Duncan
William "Bill" Johnson
George "Skip" Lull
Rich "Mouse" Malmstrom
Ed "Chip" McDonough
Bob "Albert" Price

But, if a nickname field is added, it should mesh with the first name field.

That is certainly and option but an additional field, interacting as you suggest, would make it more intuitive for most users.
