ELO-ranking on Facebook

Post by Martin0112 » Tue Jul 17, 2012 10:04 am

Hello,

I've created a new Facebook-page for the ELO-ranking.
My plan is to post each new resukt I add to the ELO-ranking also on Facebook, so everybody there who likes the page will be informed about this.
So, if you are interested to get these information on FB regularly, the easiest way is to get on the page and 'LIKE IT'

Here is the link:

OK, yes, I'm gonna come off as a pedantic jerk here. But a pervasive error of sorts has become the norm, as on the FoG rankings pages, and I'll offer a correction, for what its worth, and take my lumps.
It really shouldn't be the ELO system. It's the Elo system.
It was named for Mr. Arpad Elo who designed the rating system for chessplayers more than 50 years ago.
It is not an acronym, it's just named after the guy who invented it.
Libraries don't use the DEWEY decimal system.
(And yes, I have heard the question, What does ELO stand for, anyway?')
I know... I know.... but I said it anyway.

You appear as one of the many pedantic jerks here. And please, don't come off on these pages, the internet has far more suitable fora for that.

After all the work Martin has done on this he can call it whatever he likes, and a great big thanks to him. It's due to the efforts of Martin and a few others that we all have the opportunity to enjoy our gaming to the full.

Regards
