I think it'd be great!

On the chess site GameKnot, they include stats on a player's page, and one thing they track is your highest rank in the past 90 days, the past year, and all rated games. I don't think CC needs to bother going that far, but highest rank/score attained would be a nice addition to the profile.

That's just because you like to play real games-not just ones slanted completely in your favor. ;)

I always thought it was wierd when people paste a picture of their highest rank or write it in their sig. It's basically like showing evidence they're washed up or something. You just end up thinking, "well that must have been a fluke" or "Hmm they must have lost their touch". I guess I'm not really anti or anything but I don't think that people who post that sort of thing realize what it looks like to others: kind of pathetic.

I think it's a great idea even if it has been proposed many times before. there are countless players out there posting their highest score/position on their wall (the rank is useless, you know what the score corresponds to..).
I don't think someone with an old great high score means he's a has been, it just means he stopped caring at some point because he is medal hunting, or has just been plaing stupid costy settings for fun, always good to know what your opponent is capable of.

I didn't say it meant absolutely that he/she is a has-been but that's just what it looks like and since this suggestion probably appeals to people who are looking for prestige for a rank they no longer hold, it's just kind of an empty concept. So you've abandoned rank for the sake of getting medals, etc., but you want to show everyone that you were a contender once? Not only is it a "you can't have your cake and eat it too" sort of thing but it is evidence of being washed up in that it represents living in a past which does not currently apply to you. I can see the conqueror medal as that's a real achievement but if you've managed to reach Brig for a few days... Whoopdie dooo! If people want to show their highest rank attained, just put it in your sig like all the other sad looking people. If it means that much to you, this is a small amount of work and besides, most people don't really care obviously. Otherwise more people would be doing it.
This all reminds me of when you hear someone say "I used to be this/that" in rl. Your mental response is: Ok, so what? Are you insecure or something?

I don't see much advantage to this. Why not statistically relevant numbers instead of outliers? How about median, first and third quartile scores? "Highest" is an arbitrary score and tells us nothing.

It has been 2 years since it was last suggested so maybe a good time to revisit. A player's current rank is displayed in games and forums so having the highest attained rank on the profile shows what they have accomplished. I agree to include the highest attained score. I don't see much value to lowest score or rank.

FYI - if you want to learn about a Canadian soldier who was promoted (and demoted) 9 times then read about "Smokey" Smith who was a VC recipient http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smokey_Smith It was rumored that he spent the night in jail before receiving his award so he would be sober for the presentation. His highest attained rank was Sargeant.

I think it would be great to have this. I am one person who would really like to hit brig. and I could easily do that with team games because I'm so good ;) but when I start adding in fun games that are all chance I ahve to give up my ability to get a highscore, it would be great for the player to have a high scor eon their profile becasue as stated before it would allow us to have on there "what we are made of, as well as where we are actually at being the current score. I approve of this 100%

MERGED suggestions here. Thank you, Swifte for the help.

I see no downside to having this other than the coding required. I'm in favor of it.

humm sorry but I still see no point in your arguments here. If we are so many to display our highest rank obtained on our profile, well I guess we are just a bunch of "sad looking people" according to you but I guess we can all live with that.

I would say that the insecure person is the one thinking that way lol.
