    Some web pages are missing a Next page feature !

    For instance Player tables - I only get the first 20 rated players + myself & the players rated immediately above and below me.

    Or Find Player - From 1500 to 1600 - 20 results and no more even though there are 100's (most probably). Not 100s but 12s definetely.

    ... yes and I found the following line:

    xenaphobe 1200 120 120 0 0

    he has a 1200 rating with 120 games played and all won? I guess this is a mistake!
    There should be also a table not just for the rating, but for the most games won, a table with the smalest number of lost games, ...

    (I know the future leading guy in the category "most games lost"... )

    RE: The next missing next buttons.

    Yeah - thanks for bringing this up. This is a 'hang-over' from our early days which is yet to be rectified.

    One day soon...

    if you look at xenaphobe's (NOT xenophobe's!) games you will notice many, if not all, were Fool's Mates wins against a cascade of other nicknames that had the interesting pattern of consistently loosing to each other in a manner that progressively funneled points to xenaphobe.
    There were a number of instances of this sort of rating manipulation in the past, by several different nicknames/groups. When these abuses are discovered, The Great, Wise, and Benevolent Powers Who Lead Us tend to reset said ratings back to 1200.
