i.e. jo bloggs achieves 2 band norms in 1300-1600 and then boosts their rating to 1601.
I guess I might go green some day using your colors, but will probably be blue for a long time.
I had hopes of bouncing around green and dark orange with some chance of being blue some day!
Check this out sometime and poke some numbers in it.
It will give you win percents and show you how much better a 1580 rated player is than a 1320. I don't think they should have the same color.
