    I agree that it isn't quite fair to those just joining in on the fun...I also think we need a running system so that we have a way to move up and down in the ranks. If we take your best three finishes that doesn't really take into account whether you are improving or digressing in my opinion.

    Here's an idea. We could give each SOTW a shifting weight and only use the last 10 SOTW Contests. We would keep the idea of not total voting points but points for how you finished. For example.

    SOTW #1 would be score times 1
    SOTW #2 would be score times 2
    SOTW #3 would be score times 3
    ...
    SOTW #10 would be score times 10

    That way you would be rated higher for your recent entries.

    This would be more difficult to get started but I think I can put a spreadsheet together to make the math quicker to work out.

    Meh...

    I think that it would be better to make like this:

    For every 1st place it adds 5 points
    For every 2nd place it adds 3 points
    For every 3rd place it adds 2 points
    For every 4th and 5th places it adds 1 point
    And for the other places it adds 0,5 points

    What do you think??

    Only problem with that is what Endelhach said it that those just joining will be more at a disadvantage. I really don't know how to manage the rankings for the new guys. I think the above is fine but I think the original if there are 9 sigs 1st place gets 9 points makes more sense b/c it makes it more valuable to win a week with more sigs which is harder to do. More entries = more competition.

    Ok Here are the Rankings with the weighted system. Keep in mind it will start to roll once we get to week 11 ie Week 1 will no longer factor into the rankings.

    Rank
    1 Wiired 290
    2 Gymdawg 282
    3 Close 262
    4 tarheelsuperman 237
    5 SSBB_Lover 184
    6 Stranger 128
    7 Brawny 126
    9 KCBlack 108
    9 Cknapp 108
    10 Demonflair 102
    11 Byuakuya 98
    13 Syntax 80
    13 Enedlhach 80
    14 Coleman 43
    15 Cpt McCloud 40
    16 Bubbagump 26

    Okay, by the number of sigs in the SOTW lets say there are 7, and you get 1 place, you would get 7, 2nd, 6, 3rd, 5, 4th, etc....
