    Yes, I completely agree.

    As you know, this has been brought up before:-

    When you look at a graph, isn't the top number on the left just about your highest ever (roughly)?

    No (it's just the highest within the past 300 games)

    Say, that at your first game as a member, you win luckily to an opponent of a high rating. Then your rating will be *very* high. I've seen people with a rating of 1800, after that it will (slowly) decrease to its true level.
    Hence - the highest ever rating can't be of any value if you don't know what happened the first (some fifty?) games until it has settled.

    Golden King User 285560 is an extreme example of what I mean.
