Currently when chatting in pidgin my name that is displayed whenever I send a chat is too long and makes reading the chat difficult and sometimes confusing.
Is there a way to make the display name for all of the different protocols be something shorter like a nickname or something?
An example my facebook reads like this
(01:14:16 PM) firstname.lastname@example.org/df747fe6_4BBB0493F66AE:
and I want it to look like this
