could there be also a ranking of players based on the highest rating of nicknames per ip address?
it's so difficult to tell just how many actual individuals are feasibly availalbe to play a game within a range of ratings as well as it being difficult to determine one's ranking among persons, not nicknames which can congest the list.
Anyone care to reply?
Honestly, no one understands what the hell you're talking about.
I ran the question through a translator and now it's making more sense.
Very nice Lazlo... Do you know any sites that would translate normal english into elizabethan?
I recall one that translated Modern English to Old English, but I think you're looking for Early Modern English (or did the Elizabethan's speak Middle English?). Spir_An will know which it is.
Anyway, Shakespeare already wrote everything you might ever need. Knowing you, you're probably looking for something like this:
Why, such is love's transgression.
Griefs of mine own lie heavy in my breast,
Which thou wilt propagate, to have it prest
With more of thine: this love that thou hast shown
Doth add more grief to too much of mine own.
Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs;
Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes;
Being vex'd a sea nourish'd with lovers' tears:
What is it else? a madness most discreet,
A choking gall and a preserving sweet.
How dare you
Yeah Shakespeare's English was Early Modern. That phase is usually deemed to have begun around 1500 AD, and so includes the Elizabethan and Jacobean playwrights. I don't know if an end point has been decided upon.
I can't remember when Middle English began either but it was really only the end of the Middle Ages, let's say the last 2 or 3 centuries, and it includes Chaucer. Before that is Old English, stretching right back into the Dark Ages.
OK, plain English.
Say there are three persons here with 80 nicknames each. Say each of these PERSONS has roughly 20 nicknames each in the range of 2100 to 2400.
Suppose you are a player with your highest rating for one of your nicknames and shows you are ranked #120 among all nicknames.
How would one be able to ascertain (understand/know) what his/her actual ranking is among PEOPLE, not nicknames without going through one terribly laborious pain of going through each of the nickanmes that preceeded his/her ranking and tally up the redundant nickanmes owned by each person?
Still too complicated?
