I'm in deep slump so I even don't care about rankings.

But if anyone needs help with this I can help.

Just for your information, we are not asking for people to help, just want to know whether you like people to change something about the current state of the rankings!

So far 92 percent of the voters have expressed their discontent. How many more do you need?

Well, these are just 15 persons. Only around 10 % of all the players. And that is currently the problem, as many don't care there can be no pressure on Sjoerd to give it away. Btw, you are welcome to send Sjoerd a message to ask whether he would be willing to give the rankings away, but he never replies. Already sent like tons of messages and only 1 or 2 got a reply. I would say if we have 50 persons replied here and about 80 % disagrees, I think we should set up something to make sure we get the rankings from Sjoerd. Just wondering if you have ideas to pressure him to give it away as he never replies to anything?

Honestly, why the rankings matter at all (except for the first round BYE). Give the rankings some meaning (eg. limit the number of participants when there are 2 or more tourneys a week). When that happens and the rankings are still late then you can/should complain.

I am bad and that's good.
I will never be good and that's not bad.
I will always be me.

To be honest, I disagree. And it does matter in the race to the final tournament and indeed because of the byes.
So we have the right to complain, especially as he never apologizes for late rankings. I offered like 20 times to do the rankings for him and make sure they are there every week, but he doesn't want that.

Rankings have meaning because they are rankings! There is no extra reason needed, it is nice to know where you stand!
