That is because many American events have not been reported yet.

In your case, only four tournaments held in the last 18 months have been reported:

I just realized that I was not interpreting the page that you indicated here. It is my personal information page. I now understand that in theory if you have played in fewer than 8 games in the last 18 months, you should not have a ranking. Okay, so no ranking for me. However, other players who have equal or less activity than me do have a ranking. That is what was so confusing to me. I also realized that some players don't appear in the ratings for their country because no country is indicated in their player entry.

With examples from my region, Jeff Poole (fewer than 8 recent games) also has no ranking, but Andy Fernandez and Edward McGlynn (also fewer than 8 recent games) do have rankings. I don't know why some people's previous activity gets counted but other's don't.

Aaron, I was just looking at this too. I was going to point this fact out also. If I am ranked based on the reported tournaments, and you are not, there must be some glitch as to why you rating is not there. I mean, I don't mind being ranked number 24 in the U.S. and number 463 in THE WORLD!!!

Gines, I am wondering if this can be looked at because I am one who likes these rankings. I don't care that one can be in an area with many tournaments and get a higher rating for being in them. I think some incentives for rankings are good. My incentive is I like to tell people who don't play that I am ranked. But, its kind of like when I tell people I once placed first in a Settlers of Caatan tournament. And then tell them I won first place in the cancelation round. If Aaron or Bill Troxel or anyone else is omitted because of some glitch, then I can say I am 463 in the world.......but then have to add the caveat that guys like Aaron and Bill aren't on the rankings.

Since I am a bad organizer, I'm only now in the process of uploading the NAC2013 Archons. I have all the numbers where they need to be but the upload documentation is written for the new version of the Archon, not the old one which was in use earlier this year, and the document itself has errors besides that.

I'm going to work with Gines (or whomever) tomorrow to try to get the grammar problems sorted out, and when that happens, try to adopt the document for the old version of the Archon, and when THAT happens, then I'll upload the NAC2013 Archons.

That's good, Kevin. However, it looks as though the results for the 2011 and 2012 NACs are not reported either. 2012 NAC was less than 18 months ago.

I also attended EC 2010 Day 1 and FCQ, and those events weren't reported either.

I guess there may be technical issues and such, but it seems important to at least get the results of the Continental Championships into the ranking system for it to have legitimacy.
