Sandy, one more observation concerning the teams ranking. Maybe it's a good idea (for team race) just to sum up the ranking points earned by 3 top team members, but how are you going to calculate the team positions for every PAW competition? Using the ranking points table doesn't seem to be very convenient, as the PAW tournament results are updated many times (thank you!), sometimes a few times per day, and making these conversions for all the players... would be too boring... I guess you decided to use the system proposed by Loh: sum up the 3 top players positions. But sometimes this may give strange results...
The problem is that the rule "lower position - bigger ranking points" is obviously valid for a single player, but can be violated for a "sum of players" (team). Example: suppose team A has 1, 4, 6 positions, and team B has 2, 3, 5 positions. If we use the sum of positions, team B wins (10 over 11). But for the team race competition, team A wins! Indeed, team A would earn 4000+2600+2240=8840 ranking points, while team B would earn only 3400+2960+2400=8760 points. If madbad were finished #5 instead of #7, we would have now exactly this situation, DRM being team A and MAD being team B.
In some sense it may be even better (and funny): OK, you won this PAW tournament, but we got more ranking points - some kind of satisfaction. But if we want to avoid such confusions, I see only two possibilities:
1. Use the same ranking points system "within" every PAW tournament. I don't think it's a good solution, even the above "confusion" would be better.
2. Switch to a different team race ranking system, so that a team staying higher in a tournament will get more ranking points. On the other hand, we should take into account the different "weights" of tournaments (e.g. Superseries vs. Int.Challenge). One of the possible solutions - use the ranking table for teams as a whole. For example, now the team race table would be like that:
-#-.Pre#-.TEAM------------------ -Pts--. TRN
001.(___).Dream.Team.......DRM.. __4000. ..1
002.(___).Mad.Hatters......MAD.. __3400. ..1
003.(___).Wonderful.World..WOW.. __2960. ..1
004.(___).Chong.Wei.Club...CWC.. __2600. ..1
However, I'm not sure this is the best solution. Frankly speaking, I even don't mind the current system as well. I simply want to stress your attention on the possible confusions that can take place in future. I believe, Sandy, your final decision will be the best one.

You havea good point..........

One way is to separate the individual results from the Team results, so that the individual score points will not interfere with the Team standings that may lead to confusion. In other words, no conversion is necessary.
This would mean adopting the "SSS" (short, sweet and simple) method that was first proposed. Using the conversion method for team results may distort the Teams standings not originally intended.
Disagreements and arguments may follow as a result.
