    Have some Siege boards only available to those @ a certain rating. 900-1300, 1300-1700- 1700-2000+ so not just elite players can hold the boards.

    would make things a bit more interesting

    Trouble with that, once you start defending a board your rating
    will throw you off of it after a couple of wins.

    I like a ladder format better, then everyone will find an area on
    the ladder that they will remain at until their play improves or
    they have a streak of bad games.

    make it like tournaments. rating when you get in line is all that is important.

    But then one person who joins a board, with an upper rating of 1500, when they first join the site but later becomes a 2000+ player will never be ousted from the board.

    That is why a ladder is better, the 2K players will float to the top and
    only those worthy will reach them, and the 1300 will be fighting against
    each other, and those that float upward as the stronger players start
    on the bottom and move up the ladder with wins. Another good thing
    about ladders is everyone plays, no one is waiting a month just to see
    a game start knowing there are 4 more people infront of you to before
    you even get a chance to play.

    So explain this ladder format. It's confusing me exactly how it would work.

    There are several types, but the basic is this:
    200 people join the ladder, so there are 100 games.
    Winners move up the ladder losers move down.
    Next round starts, and after awhile you will end up playing
    people your own strenght, if your games gets stronger you
    will be moving up, if you slack off you will move down.
    It is a king on the mountain type of thing.

    There are several ways to work a ladder on line to take in the
    way we play here. www.itsyourturn.com has a good one, but this
    site is much better than that one. The ladders I love, but beyond
    that I like this site better.

    That's not a revision of the siege boards that's a whole new concept.

    Kelly and I don't see much from a compatible point of view, but we're in agreement here.
