Your Masters T&F Rankings website continues to grow thanks to your support and help. Yes, I said "your rankings site" because this site is for your information and benefit and I am really focused on making this more complete and better for you by trying to obtain every appropriate performance, make improvements and add features you want.
It is easy to get a lot done when there is so much to do! Much progress was made since the last newsletter so the system is much better including complete rankings lists for a few countries, more collaboration, people converting complete meet results, increased awareness and site visitations. You may notice that there are some errors, duplicates and misspellings.  The rankings I converted and inserted for Chile from 2013 were particularly challenging. 

By the numbers (since the last newsletter):
  • 26,357 performances added (1,553 by athlete submission)
  • Representing 7,771 athletes
  • From 90 countries
  • There are 3,021 more athletes listed than last newsletter. 
Want a better rankings site?
You use this site for motivation, to compel you to be more active and to save your lives (you have told me all of these when telling me what this site means to you).  Please take the survey and let me know how I can make it even better / more helpful for you.


Would you tell the world what this means to you (can be anonymously)?  Please log a testimonial which will help others, including those who want to invest in this site's future, understand how important it is to keep this site going.


Want to help input results?
The significant majority of the work to maintain this site is converting results into a format that can be processed and inserted into the system. You can send me results in an Excel template that will enable me to process more results faster and make this system more accurate. 
Want to help raise sustainable funding?
There is much more work than I can handle so I am raising funds to hire staff and do other things that will ensure we can maintain and sustain complete, real-time, all-inclusive rankings lists. My latest fundraising campaign is to sell advertising. You can help me secure advertisers by asking your friends and contacts to support this site (or forward contact information to me).


Someone recently committed to supporting this mission and vision for this rankings site. I will be investing funds to set up some things that will help the fundraising effort. I could use help and advice from lawyers.  Please call or email me if you are a lawyer willing to give me some help or advice that will help this site.
