Default Re: Suggestion: Replace 'FC' Bar

The new site will keep track of FC even if a better score isn't a FC. It will also keep track of how many FC and AAAs just like how plays are tracked. This can also be expanded to and other flags we would want to track in the future.

Adding a flag is more of a nightmare due to how the site was coded 10+ years ago where every single song on FFR is a completely separate table in the db. If any changes are made to 1, it has to be reflected across all 2200+ tables. On top of that, some sections of the site fetch all columns using a numerical fetch, thus adding or moving columns will break it.

No one wants to touch the score code because it's a fucking mess that took me 2 months just to figure out for the dev site.
