currently the winner of a 7* gets 6000points, 6* 5400, 5* 4800, 4* 4200, 3*3600, 2* 2000, 1* 2400
600 point gap between stars. also remember that the 1* to 6* are decided on the prize money avaliable and only loosely related to prestige while the 7* are obviously very big titles.
also going out at the semi final of a 7* gets you the same points as winning a 4*. going out at the quarterfinals at a 7* gets less than a 3* tournament win. i think the current system is fine and quite well balanced. since there are only limited 7* tournaments, the differences between the 3*-6* points are not too spread out. notice it is also a linear relationship, and not exponential since there is no need to make it exponential. make it too exponential and no one in the top 10-20 will be going to 3* events anymore. and since the 1*-6* system is linear, there is no need to make the 7* points increase exponentially.

But is LD an olympic champion or world champion, present or past? Answer is NO.
I think they did. The points the players collect are based on how big the tournament is, ie. 6 stars tournament will gain more points than 5 stars. Having said that, that's the best ranking system that one could think of and that's the best way to determine who is no.1.

The reason why Lin Dan is ranked number one is because he got more ranking points than anyone else.
Lin Dan is currently the world ranked #1 player. Taufik is currently the world and Olympic title-holder. And that is that.

for me, Taufik Hidayat is the best in MS. His ranking low because of he didn't participate many tournaments. Lin Dan only can be the champion without the particapation of Taufik. That makes Lin Dan at the top ranking.
Taufik still the best ....

Not sure how this forum works, but other forums I'm been in (non-badminton ones), this topic would have been locked. Everyone has their opinions and everyone is entitled to them, but lots of post are surely off topic by miles!

"Locking at the drop of a hat somewhat locks your mind" - totally agree. But when it has become overly 'repetitive', it somewhat bores people, so you sorta want to lock your mind.
