This site is getting so good I feel greedy asking Russ and Chrismo
any improvements. But I thought it would be interesting to include a
graph to represent fluctuations in one's rating over time, so that
people could see how they, and their opponents, are going from
strength to strength (or, in my case, from weakness to weakness).

reflecting number of games played, might even be included!
Originally posted by PawnokeyholeYou are quite correct, compared to the game histories, the space required for rating over time for every game would be insignificant.
Would it really generate a lot of data, compared to all
the individual game histories, at 4 (or 5) digits per game played?
Originally posted by RussWhile Russ messes around with the clever stuff; creating all the improvements that are visible on the site and fixing all the bugs, I take care off all the really important stuff, like storing rating histories.
This is a good idea, but the problem we have is the huge volume of
data it would generate. Maybe if we did a weekly snapshot, and only
for players who are currently active, we could minimise the problem.
Would weekly updates be sufficient, or are you after a game by game

Here is a first pass on some new code for you guys to try:
If you want to see other people's stats then do this
where XXXX is a user id.
If you don't understand this, fear not - I will link from the site proper soon.
Post any feedback to this thread.
