I love how we always totally disagree on things that are simply a matter of opinion! It’s amazing having another person I know who seems to always have the opposite opinion to me on things that don’t really matter one way or the other
I reckon you should be able to press a button to toggle one view or the other. Unfortunately, I think that the way the graph is presented is closely controlled by the back-end - efficiency rather than flexibility being chosen in the tradeoff.
PS: what I like about the per-game rank graph is that there are no step changes in it. This test account didn’t “suddenly” become 8k, as per the by-time graph, that happened over a sequence of 4 games at the beginning, for example.
If you zoom in the time-rating graph, the step will disappear. Anyhow, that’s a reason why I suggest a game-rating graph besides. People are not always playing go games at the same frequency. If long time no game, the time-rating graph will be a step up and a horizontal line. It’s a little boring before you zoom in and zoom out.
Can I suggest that the info that’s displayed on the side, about the game and such, also displays the game result? It’s not really clear whether the game is a win or a loss for the player right now without clicking on the game.
