    Correspondence section ratings? (was CC ladder?)

    Now that the first CC tournament is nearly complete, I'd like to know if anyone is interested in starting a ladder.

    Rough framework:
    -Initial positions will be finishing positions from the CC tournament at the top (those who wish to participate), followed by players in random order.
    -Players may challenge any player ranked above (or below).
    -Players play one game, colour determined at random (more games may be played by agreement).
    -If the lower player wins, the players exchange places. If (s)he loses or ties, there is no change.
    -A player who is not currently engaged in a match with a lower ranked player must accept any challenge from a player ranked three places below or fewer.
    -Computer assistance is not permitted (taken on trust).

    agreed, but for this idea, the challenge could be two games, one white, one black and to get the higher position, the lower ranked player must win the match to take the higher position on the ladder.

    Maybe, although I want to require players to accept a challenge from a lower player even if they are already playing a higher. 4 games at a time is a bit more than I had in mind (I know you crazy tourney ppl were playing 12).

    If no-one is starting a ladder, maybe I should be the one who starts one.

    My guidelines for ladder

    I propose a framework on the ladder like this:

    - Games shall be played in accordance with the FIDE Laws of Chess where applicable.
    - Each competitor is allowed 40 days for every 10 moves.
    - If the time limit is exceeded once (flag falls) the game is lost.
    - Time saved shall be carried forward.
    - The time used for each move is the difference in days between the date on which the opponent's latest move was received and the mailing date of the reply.
    - Exceeding the time limit can neither be prevented nor caused by conditional moves. The time of reflection is added at the sender's first move in a sequence of conditional moves and at the recipient's answering move to the last conditional move accepted.
    - A penalty of five days shall be added to a player who sends an illegible, invalid or illegal move, or who incorrectly repeats his opponent's latest move.
    - A player must not take more than 10 days for any move. Using more than 20 days for one move leads to the immediate forfeiture of the game.
    - It is strongly recommended that players keep track of reflection time.
    - A move sent with complete but wrong timekeeping information is not considered as invalid. The opponent must ask a correction of the clocks. The transmission, reflection and/or cumulative times recorded by a player may differ from those recorded by the opponent. If so, the matter may be referred to myself for a ruling.
    - Either or both players who do not keep a timekeeping record forfeit the right to claim for any time violation by an opponent.
    - Any player not keeping time records forfeits the right to defend himself against an elapsed time limit claim made by his opponent who has recorded such an elapsed time limit.
    - The 10-day rule shall be applied in any case even if timekeeping information is missing.
    - Claims that the time limit has been exceeded shall PM the game to myself and the opponent instead of answering the move where the time violation occurred. The game is suspended, clocks stop until a decision had been made by myself. The claim is valid if sent within a legal delay as for a move.
    - Any protest shall PM myself within 7 days of receiving the message, otherwise the claim shall be deemed conceded.
    I shall shall inform both players (by PM) of the decision within 10 days after receiving the claim.
    - If I dismisses a claim as being unfounded, there is no further claim by that player during the current period of 40 days for 10 moves shall be accepted.
    - There is a time limit of one year to complete a game.

    How do you get a start?
    No this is silly, the whole premise is silly and very badly written. I'm the senior officer here and I've not had a funny line yet so I'm stopping it.

    For those not on the list, you can challenge anyone, whether or not they are on the list.

    Challenge:

    Arosar white v ggrayggray black.

    Arosar is currently higher ranked, so he plays white.
