    How about on profiles for someone's losses it shows the percentage of resigned games Compared to their checkmated games for that person.

    What exactly would you gain from that information?

    To me it would be quite useless.

    A person with a lot of resignations as compared to checkmates could be a person entering a lot of tournaments and resigning due to gameload. Or it could be a player who sees when there is no hope.

    A person having a lot of checkmates as opposed to resginations could be a player who stubbornly holds on until checkmate (their good right) or a person not realizing that they will be checkmated or a person trying to give the opponent the option to play out the win...

    It might let me know if I want to challenge that person.

    Some sites show the percentage of people disconnecting from the game. So that's like showing that they would leave the game and let the time run out.

    Is "losses by timeout" insufficient?

    So, in other words, you want a new benchmark by which you can discriminate against other players.

    Ummm, no.
