There are a lot of people that play a lot of different states.  When you look at one state's results, you have to go back to the main results page to choose another state.  Since there is a lot of open space on the right side of the page for each individual states' results, it would be cool to have some other options there.  For instance, links to all states' results.  Maybe another option to compare 2 or 3 mirror states on one page, maybe the last 5 or 10 draws.   

Just an idea that I think would save some time, make things a little easier for those like myself who look at a lot of different states. 

Right now I copy and paste the last 5 draws of different states onto one page.  It's a little monotanous. 

Keep it simple

    Actually, if you look on the right side of the states' results pages you'll see a drop-down selection box that lets you jump directly to another state.  Is that what you were talking about?

        Do you mean the drop down menu at the top?  That's all I can think of.  I always forget that it's there.

        My main suggestion is to have a page where you can select so many states, and have the last 5-10 draws from each state listed seperately to compare.

        ...and you can select different states to compare.  I know space is limited on one page, but I don't know how many you could fit on one page.

          It's not that your suggestion is a bad one, because I think it's fine.  But there are infinite different ways that people want to view their results, especially when you're talking about comparing various states.  I could make a full-time job of doing nothing but re-formulating results and stats in different ways, with the number of requests I've gotten for various formats.

          What I DO have right now is the ability for anyone to construct the view you suggested in a few mouse clicks, using Excel to collect the results.  Pull up the view by state (which as you know already exists), then copy and paste the five lines into Excel.  Repeat for each state you want.

          Such a thing would take you about 1-2 minutes to do (conservatively -- it should be less), whereas if I were to build that view it might take me 2-3 days.

            Thanks for the suggestion about using Excel.  I just tried it and it's great!  You can certainly view a lot more that way than how I was doing it.  I just didn't know it was possible to copy and paste things like that into Excel. 

            Thanks for the tip!  And thanks again for checking out the suggestion.  I guess it saved us both a lot of time.

             Have a great day Todd!
