Post subject:  A New OOAK Ranking

Hi all OOAKers....

As a bit of fun Haggisv and I have decided to re-do an old topic that we had years ago which had died a natural death given the passing of the guard of members on here. The topic is concerned with ranking the members of the forum on their TT ability (or their wit in convincing the Mods on how good they are at the game :lol: ).

The old topic is here if you've never seen it before, or would like to re-familiarise yourself with it.

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1051&hilit=forum+ranking


Now this is not too serious, but if you have a ranking on an official system somewhere in the world and can perhaps describe where you sit in relation to the rest of the population on that system or even compare to a system like ratings central or USATT or the English system perhaps, please post it here. Hopefully, we will get together a new ranking system for the forum and we can enjoy a whole lot of banter as we get it together....and see what we end up with this time around. If you don't have a ranking, but can suggest your position in relation to other forum member videos you may have seen, or actualplaying experience against someone with a ranking...then let's know where you sit in that way.

Enjoy!.....

EDIT:

OK, here is the beginnings of the new list from what I have been able to glean from responses so far combined with all my years on the forum. By no means is it accurate, and it never will be. The main aim is to list as many active forum members as we can and get some sort of order that might resemble some kind of consensus between everyone (and I nominate ME for the final say :P :lol: ). But feel free to argue and gnarl and bite your way up or down the list if you feel so incline to do so....and also feel free to suggest placement for anyone (including yourself if you've been missed) who should be added to the list.

Post subject:  Re: A New OOAK Ranking

All swedish members (are we like 3 or so?) have a ranking if they are competing or playing in a league. If we can find a way to compare it to USATT or something else it would be nice. There should be a few players who has ranking both here and there, I hope? Any ideas of how to do that comparison?

Post subject:  Re: A New OOAK Ranking

The comparison of rankings has earned itself umpteen threads on here and other forums :) I don't think there's any accurate way to do it, but even a rough estimate would be cool.

I've thought about posting something like this myself. Would be awesome if we could organise an up to date version of that thread you linked Reb.

Post subject:  Re: A New OOAK Ranking

I improved 4 levels since the last time we did this, but so did Bogeyhunter.

This is tought to piece together... Kinda like

A>B
B=C
C<D
D>E, F, &G
F>A

and so on.

Not timpossible to get a picture, but it can be a fuzzy one that will also change every month.

Post subject:  Re: A New OOAK Ranking

I am on RC due to a couple of old Australian Vets Championships 7-8 years ago. (2008 & 2009). According to that I am now 1521 +- 180. As to whether the 1521 really represents my current playing strength given that I haven't played pennant for a few years and only play in the local district championships each year ...

I think I came up 5 divisions within my club since I last played you Rok (from B2 to A2), so I look forward to seeing what difference that may make, IIRC, you just had the wood on me back in 2009 when you visited :lol: You played Mars63 too didn't you? He's no longer on the TT scene for some years now.

He is, but was in London so he, LC and I had an afternoon session at the Uni I work at.

We need more meetings between forum members, to get an accurate picture.

I've recently met Carbonman, and I'd rank him a definite step above me. It's all because he has better equipment of course. 8) :lol: :lol: :lol:

Post subject:  Re: A New OOAK Ranking

What's his rc rating?

From memory he's around 2,000?

Arlene is about 1250

I did. He's not too far from you right, go check on him will you... :angel:

Post subject:  Re: A New OOAK Ranking

NL is US based. He waz just on a trip to England. TTD had a big thread about that.

NL and I are in the same range, although we have different results vs the same kind of players.
