Lets say you made 600 moves in the last 30 days.
At the start you have 30 games in progress. Of these 27 were in closing stages and have now finished.
So your stats would show
600 moves / 3 games in progress = 200
If your games hadn't finished until the following day your stats would show
600 moves / 30 games in progress = 20
So the figures are pretty meaningless
Meaningless? No, I don't think so.
He makes 20 moves in each game on average in the last 30 days. Crisp, I think.
If your game with him lasts 40 moves, then it will take statistically two days to compleate a game.
I never play a game for myself, I play it with another person. Some opponents I play resign when he loses his first pawn, others play every game out tot hte last move with mate. Only when you have that stat too, you will know how long a game will last, still statistically.
In my proposition, you can find out how active he is. How many moves he makes, in relation to how many games he has.
My point is that the numbre of moves made since the 1st of the month doesn't say much in the beginning of the month. Number of moves made the last 30 days does. This with the number of games currently played (as is already today) gives how active, statistically, he will be in our games.
