  • Hi VividD! Thanks for doing this. It's really helpful. Is there any way that you could do it again without the box up in the left side and replace this picture? That box is covering up the guide to which color the top three stats are. It's not a huge deal because we can look up at the information from @J. Musser's graph. If it would be easy for you to do though, it would be appreciated! Commented Nov 11, 2017 at 22:12
  • @Sue Updated, no more nasty box.
