Pairing method for sitewide 9x9 live tournaments

So I’ve joined three of the 9x9 tournaments in the last few days and have enjoyed them. But I notice that with the sliding pairing method, I am always paired with players who are far stronger than me. I don’t mind losing my games, but I’d like the experience of playing opponents who are more at my level. Or alternatively, I’d like a handicap so I have some kind of chance of being competitive.

Is there any chance of a change in one of these directions?

I think handicap 9x9 tournaments would be nice!

Bump. Could tournament directors comment on possibility of using a different pairing method sometimes? Or having handicap tournament sometimes?
