David, you appear to have achieved a feat unique in Forum history and come up with an idea about which everybody agrees.
Hats off to you sir.
My own new grade exists in part because of one bad result from January 2013 dropping out of the count. This is hardly satisfactory, but like others I can see the value in January grades, but perhaps the system could be tweaked a little.I was certainly nervous about creating some bizarre behaviours to make sure you play 30 games to get rid of ome bad results - but actually I think there is more incentive with the current arrangement ot try and manage the number of games that you carry forward?
