Hi Kev
Another statistical challenge that I think could make us all try to contribute toward, could be the Forum members' output in every rating period.
For example, we can work out the average of gain/loss of those members who played a rateable amount of games throughout the rating period and compare it with the previous one.
On the individual basis the player - member who contributed more points would receive a star or something like that, whilst the person who absolutely stuffed up and contributed the biggest negative score would receive something like a wooden spoon award.
In both cases, relevant smileys (Howie can find really good ones) can be added in front of the person's ID or signature.
I think something like that would add to our efforts to play better chess.
Now, I don't know if this proposal is posted in the right thread here, or should I post it in the Ratings Arena thread?

PS To make it even more interesting we can have awards for the best five and boowards for the worst five!
