FunTrivia has been storing all results of all players since the quiz system was built. The player results database now has over 30 MILLION entries. Needless to say, this is starting to take its toll on performance of the server and space and time used to back that thing up (the index itself is over a gigabyte large).
Sooo... I'm now deleting all quiz scores of all players who have not been seen on FunTrivia for 1.5 years.
Therefore, players who played in 2002 but havent played since will have their records deleted to free up space for new and existing players.
What this means is that ratings that players may have set on quizzes years ago may no longer contribute to your rank. I'm not sure if this will make a huge difference, as older quizzes tend to have been played a lot more times, but it's certainly possible that the deletion of old user ratings may push some quizzes into the unranked category (therefore getting an "average" rank. It also means that the more recent plays of a quiz are more significant to rank.
