E.g. if I look on http://cgos.boardspace.net/9x9/bayes.html, I see that _Gnu3.8L1_2 has an Elo of 1857 after playing 258 games. On http://cgos.boardspace.net/9x9/standings.html (the only page I normally look at for ratings) it has a rating of 1760 (after playing 258 games). How do these two numbers relate, and also how will it work, copying the Elo across to the main table, which at the moment doesn't look like it contains Elo? Sorry to ask basic questions - I'm still new =)I see on the Elo page that the Lazy,* bots have between them accrued 144 games. and have a combined Elo of 2111. But on the main ratings page I see two separate bots, Lazy,0 and Lazy,1.  Is the idea that when you do the copy-over, the main ratings page will also only show Lazy,* ?

I think any sync to baeselo should update all bots, not just the comma bots. Without that, it may take a while for other stable bots to resettle. It'll also make the comma bots drift faster if you don't.
