Idle curiosity, which I hope Michael or someone else may be able to satisfy; how does the database or site assign the primary team shown next to a player?
Clubs are listed in descending order of â€œactivityâ€.
Iâ€™d better expand on that. By activity I mean the number of games youâ€™ve played for the club in team events, plus the number of games youâ€™ve played in its internal competitions.
If only it were so simple. Congresses come into it as well. Congresses donâ€™t have to report your club, but they often do, and when one does your games in that congress will count toward the clubâ€™s activity. This is a bit arbitrary if you belong to three or four other clubs, and downright misleading if the club reported is one you havenâ€™t belonged to in the last eight years. (This happens.) So activity counts arenâ€™t entirely reliable.
To keep your list of clubs reasonably up to date, the system applies a cutoff. Clubs are shown only if they have appeared in your record in the last two or three years.
