Quote from: dreadnaut on September 19, 2021, 11:00:41 AMMy first idea starts from a principle. I think everyone would find the competition more entertaining if there was a way to choose the level of difficulty, up to a certain point.Currently people are kicked out of the newbie league after a fixed amount of time, whatever the number of races they took part in, or their results. Some linger as newbies far longer than they should, other would enjoy are more relaxed induction, or simply to race at a different level.My vague proposal, a first iterative step: Rename "newbies" to "amateurs" more or less everywhere (except the Newbie Guide) When a pipsqueak signs up, they start as an amateur Amateur results appear on both the global and the amateur-only scoreboard (as it happens now) An amateur loses their status when one of these happens: they voluntary choose to do so they finish a race in the global top 6 (or 3?) they finish a season in the global top 8 (or 6?) they win the amateur championship 2 (3?) times, non necessarily in a row Once you leave the amateur group, there is no going backAbove, in parantheses, more "lenient" criteria.

Not that there are many others nowadays, I know. Removing those elements would change the nature of the whole thing, which I am not keen to do.
QuoteWhat do you think of the rules over at Racer4Kicks? Is that the middle ground you are thinking about?
Quote from: dreadnaut on September 19, 2021, 03:34:09 PMIt'd be useful to get Igor's—and any other recent starts'—viewpoint in this topic. KyLiE, could you invite him or intercede for us?
Quote from: alanrotoi on September 20, 2021, 02:09:37 AMMaybe adding an ELO system? (without changing the current point system. Something like the world rank list taking the different scoreboards inside zak's: main, GAR and OWOOTR+RH)
