Hey Tim, Thanks For All The Commas

CTP Teams leaderboards now come with added commas

OK so this may not make a huge difference to your life…but it does to mine.

Yesterday Tim did something really awesome…simple but awesome none the less – he added commas to the scores on the CTP Teams leaderboards.

“So what?” you might reply.

Well with teams like SurfAholics Alpha getting numbers week in and week out which run into the tens of billions it is so difficult to read those numbers without commas.

Look for yourself…which is easier to read:

  1. 26334967771 or
  2. 26,334,967,771

In the latter I can see, at a glance, that the number is 26 billion something but in the first then I have to point my cursor in the screen and move backwards in groups of three to get the same information.

And given that I look at the numbers every single day this is a huge help.

So, once again, thanks Tim for the commas.
