i don't think it is useful but if it is going to be submitted then shouldn't the submission be that our highest ever is posted on our profile, not our best since last week.

Yes. I'm letting the developers determine the best way to do it. Are you sure that they can not get the highest score ever?

pretty certain. map rank can't either.

a few years ago the logs were lost. all Lack was able to glean from those games is who won.

Even if we can't do that, it's still a good idea to use the data since we started recording scores. After a year, it will give a pretty good indication of what people are capable of.

it is not possible to get everyone;s high score with absolute certainty. with a lot of effort we could reproduce what map rank does and go back in time and get a decent estimate. i am happy to keep this suggestion in submitted, however it is unlikely to get a high priority at this time due to the cost/benefit tradeoffs involved.
