Yes I understand that, I plan on making an alias so that I can see stats like I see my own - it's much easier to work with then.
As for the hud, I have just been backing up my DB then messing around with SQL, then restoring the DB after I am finished so no damage done
This explains why you can't look at an individual player if they are part of an alias then, as the individual player "no longer exists" in the DB (although can be put back as you say).
I have messed around with the reports as you mentioned earlier, filtering out my name from the results, however I think that it is better to be able to work with the population data as I can work with my own.
Thanks anyway for your help, I know this isn't exactly a routine enquiry.
