You already made one thread about the rating, why keep spamming with new threads?

Please put at least 90 seconds worth of effort into finding an answer to your question before posting these incredibly vague threads.

If he lives in China he probably doesn't even have access to Google. And Baidu probably gives something completely different in Chinese. Like: 千佛神秘三角洲评级 which probably wouldn't get you anywhere near something relating to a boardgame. Is there even a word for 'Mystica' in Chinese? Anyway, give the guy a break. He's posted like two things here . . . ever!

Give ME a break. Perhaps I could have worded my post a bit more politely. But I don't think that I have been extraordinary rude.
I provided him a link which answers his question and an idea how to find such a link by himself.
If it is required to do a full background research before answering a question I'm out. (On this site I often read posts which seem to assume that everyone lives in the USA, knows all about american culture or is a native english speaker . If I would complain everytime I wouldn't get any rest. )

Interestingly, the word delta is nowhere to be found on the snellman pages: neither on the Ratings nor on the Statistics page.

So I guess the question the OP is asking refers to the use of the word "delta" in the discussions. In this case, the following explanation might be the good one:

"Delta" is just another word for "difference" (used by people with a mathematics background). E.g. the "delta VP between two players" is the difference in the number of victory points between the two players.

You haven't searched enough.
Go to the ratings. There is a column 'breakdown' with the word 'show' in each row. Click on it and you will be enlightened.

Nope, not buying it. Even as terrible as the BGG search function is, using it to search the TM forums with only the keyword "delta" still returns the thread that Fluxx linked in the first page of results. It takes only minimal effort.

Or you could just choose to be a nice guy and not sweat it. Your call though.
