People were asking me, when does the next CTPSB ranking come out. In the past I was making a ranking according to the hive power of the accounts in the community to see how the community was progressing. Well there will be a new CTPSB ranking but not the way you know it.

Why a new ranking?

The problem was that it was very time consuming to update this ranking. The other issue was that in this ranking there were people who actually didn't own any ctp tokens and it started not to make much sense anymore. Since this ranking was also the base for who was in the CTPSB program, I started to have some difficulties to decide who to include and who not. It was too objective and I started not to like it anymore.

That is why, I decided to come up with a new ranking. A ranking that is based totally on objective factors. It will be an internal ranking for me that will help me define who will be part of the CTPSB program and who not.

How are the ranks calculated?

To create this ranking, the first step was to go to the CTP richlist and sort it according to the number of CTP tokens staked. I believe that the CTP stake shows best who is committed to the token and the community. I then when through every single account and looked at the last post written on CTPtalk. If the last post is older than 2 months, the account would be erased from the list and considered inactive. I then also looked at the quality of the posts and I erased the accounts that were publishing content of insufficient quality. I haven't been very strict while doing that. I had now my new ranking.

Two categories

I now defined two categories of accounts. The top 40 accounts and the next 20 accounts. The top 40 accounts will get full support from the program and the 20 next ones will get partial support. To define who is in tier 1 and who in tier 2, it's the number of staked CTP tokens that counts.

For the next month, as long as you have posted in CTP talk during the last two months and as long as your content is of sufficient quality:
You will be in Tier 1 if you have today 11'900 or more CTP tokens staked
You will be in Tier 2, if you have today at least 4'400 CTP tokens staked
If you have less than 4400 CTP tokens staked you won't be in the program this month.

This ranking is however not definitive. Every month, I will do it anew and it will be a kind of competition to be in the top 40 or the top 60. What matters most is to be active and to stake CTP tokens.

I believe that this way of doing is quite fair and objective. For me it will be easier to argument why somebody is in the program and why not. It will also be less time consuming for me.
