Phileo asked

Why isn't the new Cash King margin a part of the Rule Maker ranker? It's a quantitative criteria, so the ranker spreadsheet should be changed to include that criteria.

Lance replied

I don't know the specific answer, but I can think of two possible reasons why it hasn't been "officially" done yet:

1) The powers that be haven't decided on what scoring system should be used with the new criteria.

2) No one has volunteered to go back to all 200+ posted spreadsheets and redo the calculations to include the Cash King Margin component, then repost them to the Companies board. Anyone care to volunteer?

In case Lance didn't track down Matt yet, here's what I can say about this. 1 is right on target. We've discussed it but haven't decided the best way to address it yet. We have not considered redoing all the other spreadsheets, so the more difficult part has been how do we address the differences in scoring pre and post CKM.
