    I love this site and I hope nobody gets offended when I say the graphical display of my ranking changes on the profile page is a bit of an eyesore. Don’t waste your time changing it or anything, there are better things you could be doing like figuring out “If opponent moves c4, then Nc3” etc.

    However, I was wondering if we could be given access to the raw data used to draw the graphs so we can make a few that look a little nicer Some might say this is a petty and silly request but I am a petty and silly man .

    I know it could be done alone but it’s a lot less work this way.

    It's all there in your profile page.
    If you view the page source, then you'll see that there are four arrays defined - gameIdArray has the game ids, playerArray has your rating at the time of the game start, opponentArray has the rating of the opponent and there is also a dateArray for the last move of the game.

    The first element of each array is the last game played. You'll only get the last three hundred games this way though.

    Should be easy enough to cut-and-paste this into excel (or whatever) to get your own pretty graphs.
