    How about a Highest rating won against and a lowest rating lost against ?

    Perhaps the former makes sense, but not the latter. There have been occasions where very skilled players have experienced big rating drops because of timeouts (either on vacation or being irresponsible). As a result, sometimes someone with a 900 rating might in fact be a 1500+ player. It would suck for your page to say that you lost to someone with a 900 rating when, in fact, that person was actually a 1500 player.

    Just a consideration.

    I would like to see average rating played against as well as best rating beat.... that would be nice.

    i want to know what percentage of their lost games is lost by timeout

    and

    i want to know the longest any of their opponents has been waiting for them to move
    (calculate it once per day only - no need for constant updates, i only really want to know if anyone is waiting for 20 days)

    I was a regular on the site until I was excluded for no reason and with no explanation. The social forums were closed because he disagreed with freedom of speech . When I asked him why I was being pushed off the site he did not even have the decency to answer me . That is now why I am at RHP and am delighted to be a subscriber......long live RHP.

    This sounds really lame!Were you a subscriber?
    However RHP is a more friendliest community:I played60 games till now on GK and even if I usually say ''good luck'' before every game and try to have a little chat,no one answered................

    I just wanted to voice my support for the idea. I think these would be great! The current rating system is great, but it can be a poor indication of a player's actual strength.

    I also think Russ is the best admin on the web. So don't let t his cut into your beer drinking time. You deserve a cold one! Enjoy!
