Awesome that lichess hosts these meets! :D
> Started beta testing for optional push notifications - even with no Lichess tabs open
Yesss! If I understand correctly this would mean I can get rid of the lichess app on my phone and use exclusively my mobile browser. That's the dream; thanks devs for your hard work!
i'm sure that i've found a person that's been pretty hastily photoshopped in :)
Hastily? I'll have you know, our Vice Executive Image Manipulator spent the best part of an evening doing that awesome work!
lol... i thought he just had a big head...and rathe high res at that!!
Glad to see everyone is in good spirits!
I'm excited to see long-anticipated "Improved connection stability" and "Updated rating calculations" in place!
> Updated rating calculations
Can we have details?
Full details are at: github.com/ornicar/lila/pull/4034
Quoting the original comment there, which gives a good summary:
> This change makes Glicko RD values increase based on the time since the previous game, rather than a fixed amount each game. This should make ratings more stable, more accurate, and more in line with the design of Glicko-2.
