However, we can charge a small annual fee, if non AC members want to be there.
So ... for accurate numbers I think you still have to process all events and players and keep them on files "behind scene" but display only ACF members.
I move we limit all future ACF rating lists to ACF-sanctioned events (and perhaps WCMs hosted by the ACF and including ACF members), and limit all WCDF rating lists to international events.
I think a bigger issue with removing non-ACF players from the ratings list is that the ratings were already calculated with them included. So take an example of King playing in the Irish Open. While he may be an ACF member, not everyone who played there was.
Would the right thing to do be to only calculate games between ACF members or to not include the tournament at all?
Either way it's in the past and his rating would've already been adjusted from the tournament. Removing non-ACF players from the list after the fact is a start, but it's not the same as removing them from the source, which would require recalculation.

If you were looking for compliments - you have them

All I know is that I am just trying to help and people, just like you, seem content to tear me down. You came at me calling my contributions a waste. I was simply stating that if you dont like my contributions, oh well. If you see something you think needs improvement make an effort to improve it, but don"t tear others down for thier contributions. I see a lot of people on this forum complain that we need to increase appreciation and participation in checkers, especially to keep ACF going. However, very few act on what they say. I don't have a lot of money to donate so I donate my time and effort. I have spent a lot of time and hard work on these ratings and am insulted that people would call it a waste. Who cares how a person contributes as long as they make the effort. Criticizing me doesn't do anyone any good. Its certainly not going to encourage others to contribute if they see that when you do you get insulted.
