Change in awarding of weekly and monthly rank-based prizes

We currently award prizes based on ranking with weekly, monthly and quarterly frequency. The quarterly championship has already moved away from awarding prizes based solely on ranking.

We will now do the same for weekly and monthly awards. Instead of awarding a prize based strictly on ranking, we will award the prize by randomly selecting a winner from all those players whose percentage of correctness is at least as high as the #1 ranked player.This approach encourages correctness, rather than speed, which is something a number of players have been urging.

This change in policy will be applied retroactively to June 2010 and week 26 (June 28 - July 2). All winners will be posted and notified by 5 July 2010.
