User Stats: Total Number of Moves Made

elk12429

I'd like for the total number of moves I have made in all of my games to be one of the stats when I look at my account stats.  Does this already exist, or can that be added if not?

I am trying to figure out why this could possibly interest you.

How about an estimate? You have played 535 games. Statistics gleaned from my extensive internet search reveal a median game length of 70 half moves. This would give you an estimate of 18,725 moves (or 535 *35) you made. 

Now what?

It was one of the account stats on the chess websites I played on before I came to this one, and I thought it would be interesting to see.

FYI - there seems to be a rule against naming other competing chess websites on the forums.

Anyway, it does seem like an interesting stat to see; however, I'd still much rather have the staff spend their time on making bughouse or some other variant available.

Deleted other names from the comment.  There's a good reason I left them in any case, they've over-monetized and become anti-fun, and so I came here a couple years ago and now pay for chess.com because I love it!

I don't really see the attraction... Total number of games has its own meaning, but the total number of moves seems rather meaningless to me.

It is meaningless, but regardless that stat now exists.

Agreed. Stat showed up recently but means absolutely nothing (at least to me). I also divided games played by moves made and the result did not make any sense, so I have to wonder just how valid the stat really is.

The other way. Total moves divided by number of games makes sense.

I get 34.
