New Enhanced Player Profile
Hello again, players! Remember that poll we ran last year? We asked you what we could add to the site to enhance your user experience. Well, I took some elements from the three choices given in the poll and have created a new, enhanced version of the Player Profile.
Before, you could only check your results for a given month. Now, when you go to your new profile, a new left side menu will show up with links to all months starting in 2012. Each month has a value next to it that tells the number of games you scored in that month. We also added a graph showing a player's point accumulation per month. Lastly, on the 'Detailed View' table, each date now links to the full game results for that event.
We hope you guys enjoy these new features and please provide feedback about what else we could add to make it even better! To check it out, fill out your name below and click go to profile!
