As part of ongoing our ratings and ranking work, we are looking to improve upon our rank conversion between OGS and the AGA / EGF, as well as a wider more general purpose rank conversion system between different organizations and servers.
Unlike previous years, we are not asking for an anonymous web form, instead we are asking that you fill out your information here: https://online-go.com/settings/link
This new settings page allows you to provide your ID/PIN, and usernames for various organizations and servers, as well as what rank you are with them. In the case of the AGA and EGF, and potentially other sources in the future, we’ll be able to analyze your progression through time and develop a more advanced model for converting ratings and ranks.
Additionally, if you choose to display this information on your profile, other players will be able to look you up at those organizations or find you on another server. If you don’t want it to be displayed on your profile, simply toggle the hide switch, in which case the information won’t show up on your profile, but we can still use your information to develop our model.
So, if you play elsewhere, please take a moment and fill out that information! Even if you find yourself on this page but don’t actively play on OGS, please still take a moment to fill it out, you don’t need to be an active OGS player to help us build this model and allow the community to benefit from it. For any server / server , organization / organization, and server / organization combination, we’ll be able to provide a more accurate mapping for ranks, provided we have enough data from players like you.
