Re: Ask Chuck Kennedy
Thanks for the explanation. You are right - it would take a little intelligence to be able grab the most recent rating before the event. But I can't imagine it would be too complicated in comparison to a lot of the searches/calculations that currently spit out data from the ratings database.
You can actually see players' progress really well in the "ratings history" part of each player's stats. That bar graph is cool. But when looking at events from years past, it is a pain to click on each player to get a real-time historical snapshot (and then have to remember it all).
As usual, thanks for all the work you and the team do to make this stuff so accessible!
