I'm a beginner at Go, located in Sweden. I started playing at KGS in November 2003. Before that, I had only played a couple of games. I was introduced to the game by a french guy working at a gasthof in Austria. I think it was in 2001.
I've made a small perl script that processes the KGS archives and calculates the win ratio of a player. You can run it from http://lublin.se/kgsstats/.
LukeNine45: Sweet script! Thanks for posting the link! :)
At the moment (spring of 2005) I'm about 13 kyu at KGS.
- tderz Being able to filter games by any property of the stored SGF file.
I am esp. interested to filter games according to strength e.g. "Best KGS games of the week" in order to find some exciting games.
Hence, I am interested in a search screen, which enables selecting games according to (a)strength (range).
- It would be inefficient to be logged in to KGS and 'wait' for those game and/or to check out the archive for some players (while they might not have played for ages and/or changed account).
- Secondly on gets to know the games of all new high-dan KGS accounts.
