    Is it possible to add to a player's profile their win-loss rates when they play white or black?
    It may be helpful for some people to see at a glance if they are stronger on one side than the other.

    Okay then. That's one player down. Now just another 10,682 to go.
    What do you say RHP? Can you write a script into the player profile pages that tabulates their win-loss-draw rates for black and for white?

    I'm adding to my own thread because I still think this is a good idea and I want to get some forum chatter going. Some players don't know how terribly awful they are on one side of the board compared to the other. They don't have anything to gauge themselves with . . . yet. When you challenge somebody you never played before, wouldn't you be interested to know if they are aces playing black and utter crap playing white.
    Isn't this the most sane, rational, and logical evolution of the RHP player profile pages?
    Whose with me?
    Can I get an amen?

    Unfortunately RHP can't add every little piece of stats we as chess players want.

    If it did every players page would take an hour to load.

    I assume he meant for opponents.

    It's in the player tables. If you use Greasemonkey and ouroboros' scripts, you even get percentages, e.g.

    1 Akizy [Netherlands] 2452 319 (89% ) 17 (5% ) 22 (6% )

    Edit: Damned autosmilies.
