There is an automated process indeed. It's most commonly known as Alkis.

I do think this sort of automation is somewhere broken...
I think that we should replace this automation with something more reliable!

Kidding aside I think Alkis put A LOT of effort in this but due to many reasons (work, family etc) he lost motivation and will.
This kind of things require time which is a finite resource.
Probably now he prefers to spend this finite resource in a different way. I don’t blame him for this.
Anyway I think that the ranking and above all the KOASI is our history. Along with the forum. Although it is a passed medium, it is alway essential for the World Cup keeping track of everything. I doubt it would be possible to arrange a World Cup without the forum.
For what I concern, I think we could find a way to maintain the KOASI and ranking up to date:
Pay Alkis to do the job (to maintain KOASI and ranking is defo a job) I think he can count the hours involved.
I think this could be a good way to find motivations.
Otherwise we could ask Alkis if he could pass all the stuff to somebody who could care about it.
In the same way we could pay somebody to maintain it.
It isn’t like 15 years ago when we have many tournaments in a month. Now we have very few tournaments along the year. To keep things up to date should be different now.
Probably we also should re think about the concept of “inactivity “ as the ranking most luckily looks like a very short list now.

For what I concern I would pay.

Any update Alkis?
