Hi,

I have an obvious suggestion for providing nicer stats for participants.
(If this thing already exists somewhere, sorry, could you point me to it
please?)

Rather than (or in addition to) the "Participant's Block Submission
History", could we add a line graph plot of *cumulative* work done VS
time, for each participant? These stats would be much more useful than
Block Submission History, esp. for people (like myself) who do not
fetch-flush on a strictly regular schedule. A cumulative work VS time
graph would show change in keyrate nicely together with total work done.

I just did this with MSExcel, using data from Submission History... There
was a slight problem with Excel97 not being able to automatically
understand the dates as dates.
So anyway, if this graph thing can't be done on the statsbox, perhaps
someone can do an add-on? Perhaps one that reads directly from the html
table of Submission History. (pretty-please...)

(I would also prefer this to a keyrate VS time graph, is it just me?)

Also, on the "Participant Summary" page, I suggest the "Current Rate" field
be defined rather as work submitted over time interval from last flush, or
something like that... The present calculation tends to give crazy-large
figures for "Current Rate" because it assumes that any work submitted that
day was completed on a single day (I suspect).

Obvious ideas I guess. Too much of a hassle to implement?
I've no idea... but nice stats will always be good for dnet...

Thanks and best regards,
dt
