So; 1069/39=27.41 moves. Round of to nearest integer, then 27.
Your avarage number of moves per day is 27.
I don't know if you really read what I wrote, but I'm talking about the minimum *required* number of moves per day (a theoretical calculation based on the number of games and their timeouts), not the *actual* number of moves made. I've made many more moves than were necessary. At my current game load, I could get by on a minimum of about 7.5 moves per day.
It's true, this wouldn't take into account things like later tournament rounds starting up. Also, it would be hard to track the "hardcore" tournaments (zero timeout). But it still could be useful as an approximation.
Also, if this was displayed in the profile, you could use it to help choose opponents who didn't seem overloaded. e.g., there is a big difference between someone with 100 21-day games in progress and someone with 100 1-day games in progress. (Of course you could also figure that out by just looking through all their games, but that would be very tedious.)
