What’s Next

The following are my general initiatives for the Statistics site:

  • continue design migration towards new navigation experiment pending feedback.
  • focus on exposing more data, and displaying it nicely on appropriate pages.
  • with that complete, providing week-by-week breakdown of seasons.


If you see numbers or information that is obviously wrong, please give me a heads up so they may be corrected and misinformation does not remain present on the site for other visitors to spread. All errors are embarrassing and I work to correct them as soon as reported.
