Hi Ben

Well, when I enter 'Chess' into the form, I get almost/all the names of people on the complete Ratings Page for Public Ratings, including some people having played well over 100 games (as would be also expected for the complete Ratings Page for Public Ratings). Presumably 'Chess' includes results for not just for standard Chess, but also e.g. Alice Chess (or any CV name with the word Chess in it).

The menu-generated links to Ratings should be updated to include `/play/`, but inserting that myself still doesn't seem to pass the game parameter to the rating script.  I can try to fix this later if no one else gets to it.

On the other hand, directly entering 'Chess' in the form produces what seem to be reasonable numbers...?

Somehow I get an error message when I try to look up Ratings for [the standard game of] Chess, e.g. when I look on 'Related Pages' when looking at the GC preset page for chess (with rules enforced by the preset). If I alternatively use the filter on the general Game Courier Ratings page and type in 'Chess', I get a result with far too many games for just the games of the standard game of Chess to having been searched for by the filter. Is there a trick to get ratings for (just) games played of the standard game of Chess that I'm missing?
