Yes, because he/she could have become brig from some sort of artificial means so it doesn't actually show you anything concrete. Besides, if you're facing a Corporal and his/her median score is above or below Corporal that's going to tell you what you really need to know right?

Everyone who bothered to post in this thread, yeah looks that way.
Although, this has sort of turned into a suggestion for lowest, highest and mean rank, the last of which I think may have some use.

I think the real point of this is to brag and remember good times, not demean and remember bad times. So, I think the lowest is probably a bad idea.

As for mean, I don't remember reading that, but I believe it's in there. I'm not sure how that would work. Average score at midnight since the day you joined? Average score after each game finished? That's a little more hazy and probably a lot more harder to code than the highest score.

Either way, I'm going to sticky this thread for a bit.

The low and high score should at least be possible to a user to check it somewhere in the site, without needing to use maprank
Not necessarly in the profile, but in the scoreboard for ex.

funky is a non bragger....shun him!

ooooo I got a good idea! what if the lowest score was your lowest score after a month of play. That would be pretty fair. People learn after a month and usually have a score that represents some sort o skill and learning. or a long/shorter time. the lowest score ever would be kind of dumb if your lowest score is 950 after you lost 3 games when you joined and knew nothing.

Mean score isnt a bad idea just a lot harder to code id bet.

using bob after a month my score was 1500. How much I learned as a noob and where I was at score wise.
Mean after 3-4 years is around colonel I think..so 2500-3000
High is 4000

There should be in fact "Show detailed statistics" of an user, where everything is listed, for start it is ok to write only highest rank/score, but there should be also lowest rank/score, graph of gaining medals over time, graph of played games over time etc... but I know I'm asking too much

I don't know that you're asking too much. I don't think I really want the lowest score, personally, but I don't care that much.

I don't know about the graphs. What are you envisioning the axes being? Time (in days, months?) or based on games played vs medals and scores, etc.?

I really, really like the way redhotpawn.com shows you the user statistic. It shows games played, highest/average/lowest rating for each of 90 day/1 year/5 year periods. The current rating only tells part of the story. Maybe the person has been playing particularly well lately. Maybe he's been playing poorly. Maybe he's been having bad luck. Maybe good. Or maybe he's been medal hunting. Or trying to see how high he can get his rank.

I don't have any problem with highest score, and I think funky makes a good point that mean score would be something that would actually provide meaningful information. Once we get beyond high score though, I don't think that it's a great idea to continue adding to the profile. The profile currently shows a few things about you including your achievements such as medals and your current score. I think a player's highest score is as important an achievement as the medals that they've won and have no problem with that being on the profile page. So, I am in support of this suggestion.

I would love a User Stats page that has a lot of the stuff maprank has on it, but I don't see that happening nearly as quickly as just adding high score to the profiles.

It would also be useful for a few other circumstances.

If I see a Private who once was a Brigadier, I will think differently than if I see a Private who only ever made Corporal. It could be that the cook just lucked out, went up a bunch by, say, playing an unusual map a lot when folks did not understand it yet. However, a cook who used to be a Brigadier might also be a farmer or otherwise attempting to "game the system". OR, conversely, it might be a good player that went down trying to learn a new map/style

So, why wasn't this suggestion implemented yet?

Players would stop putting their High Score/ Higher Rank in the location/occupation/signature and would put more relevant information if they wished to.
Besides, like someone has already pointed out, the High Score is sometimes more meaningful than the actual ranking and says a lot about the experience of the player.

Cheers!

that example is a bit extreme. if someone on this site is a private who once was a brig he's really put lots of efforts into point dumping!
