If one does just consider LPVs, one could choose a time span of up to ~
20 years to get still nice LCs for most of these stars.
One cann't consider short period EBs and pulsators for this. Maybe even
This brings the question of a phase plot option such as ASAS or Hipparcos
And of course that, depending on the star's period, a different time span
option would be the ideal case.
>>> Choosing 3000d (~ 8 years) for the time span gives major time ticks750d and minor time ticks every 150d. Not really odd numbers, but IMO
choosing 4000d (~ 11 years) with 1000d and 200d time ticks, or 2000d
(~ 5.5 years) with 500d and 100d time ticks, or 1000d (~ 3 years) with
250d and 50d time ticks would be better.
I see your point, maybe a 2,000 d. figure could be chosen then (although I
would prefer 4,000)
It's just to have a first look at the star's behaviour over longer time
frames than 200 d. It was too short for most cases.
But if someone wants a different time span it can be got easily by changing
the URL from "lastdays=2000 to lastdays=200" or whatever.

I think that if you're so interested in that star in particular, you can
take your time to go to the LCG page and set all the parameteres as you
wish. I think that only displaying visual observations for the VSX entry is
a good choice, I wouldn't wnat to have all kinds of mixed symbols if I just
wanted to see the star's general behaviour over the recent years.
