    It occurs to me that I've been associated with this site for what is approaching one fifth (20% ) of the time I have ever existed - I find this quite impressive (yeah I'm easily impressed!)

    over to you ...

    How does that compare with the average chess player?

    Aren't all of us exceptional or average or mediocre in some areas; how is it possible to net an individual's
    unique profile to arrive at a human rating (which may well change positively or negatively over time)?

    I have been on this site for approximately 4.76% of my life.

    That's an amazing quantitative rating; how would you assign a meaningful qualitative index or rating?

    To assign a qualitative value, I think I am able to say that I have learned 99% of the chess I know on this site, as when I joined in February I really only knew how the pieces moved.

    So, [4.76%/1526] would be your own unique combined quantitative/qualitative site rating?

    Wouldn't approximately be 5%?

    Not amazing at all when you consider the fact that the site is less than 13 years old.
    Of necessity, older players have low ratings and younger players can be close to 50%.
