Hi there! Just a quick suggestion or a starting point for a discussion on the topic.... The current colour categories for both team and donor productivity levels are a little out-dated and appear to be generally out-of-step with current productivity rates since the advent of the second generation GPU client (not to mention bigadv work units). My suggestion is to change the PPW ranges for each already-existing category rather than overhauling it entirely in an effort to minimize the amount of effort required to make the change.

Currently, the categories are as follows:

Donors:
Red = 11,200+ PPW
Dark Red = 8,400-11,199 PPW
Orange = 5,600-8,399 PPW
Lime = 2,800-5,599 PPW
Blue = 1,400-2,799 PPW
Green = 700-1,399 PPW
Black = 1-699 PPW

Teams:
Red = 525,000+ PPW
Dark Red = 350,000-524,999 PPW
Orange = 210,000-349,999 PPW
Lime = 105,000-209,999 PPW
Blue = 35,000-104,999 PPW
Green = 12,500-34,999 PPW
Black = 1-12,499 PPW

I believe these should be scaled higher, and here are my suggestion for the categories...

Donors:
Red = 700,000+ PPW
Dark Red = 350,000-699,999 PPW
Orange = 70,000-349,999 PPW
Lime = 35,000-69,999 PPW
Blue = 7,000-34,999 PPW
Green = 700-6,999 PPW
Black = 1-699 PPW

Teams:
Red = 10,000,000+ PPW
Dark Red = 5,000,000-9,999,999 PPW
Orange = 1,000,000-4,999,999 PPW
Lime = 500,000-999,999 PPW
Blue = 100,000-499,999 PPW
Green = 50,000-99,999 PPW
Black = 1-49,999 PPW

I put some thought into these categories, but they are by no means necessarily the best possible categories - just a starting point for some discussion (hopefully).

Thanks!

Ok, lets wait a bit to give a chance for people to have an opinion about it. Otherwise I will change as suggested.
Every criticism or suggestion from the user is a gift. Even if i disagree or don't answer. Obviously if there is real intellectual work on producing it the better.

Hello,
Indeed, that must change. With QRB the points increased.
Dead Things, very few teams get 10,000,000 PPW (<30). Variegation will be lost.

Donors:
Red = 500,000+ PPW
Dark Red = 250,000-499,999 PPW
Orange = 100,000-249,999 PPW
Lime = 25,000-99,999 PPW
Blue = 5,000-24,999 PPW
Green = 1,000-4,999 PPW
Black = 1-999 PPW

Teams: (1)
Red = 5,000,000+ PPW
Dark Red = 1,000,000-4,999,999 PPW
Orange = 250,000-999,999 PPW
Lime = 100,000-249,999 PPW
Blue = 50,000-99,999 PPW
Green = 25,000-49,999 PPW
Black = 1-24,999 PPW

Teams: (2)
Red = 5,000,000+ PPW
Dark Red = 2,500,000-4,999,999 PPW
Orange = 1,000,000-2,4999,999 PPW
Lime = 500,000-999,999 PPW
Blue = 100,000-499,999 PPW
Green = 50,000-99,999 PPW
Black = 1-49,999 PPW

PS: if relevant, I have another one suggestion. "Members Active ..... in the last 50 days" are not a lot - 50 days? If you reduced to - 30 days?

Good luck to all.

Thanks

Sorry for bad English  :)

Do you mean all color groups should have the same number of teams? If not do you imagine some objective criteria for making the groups limits?

I have a slightly preference for making the top group smaller then the next one and so on following a pyramid shape.

I would agree with DT, even it it would be a color change for me, but yes it is a good idea in general

First Page - "All Teams", the old  colour coding.
I checked and the first few teams. There only the first pages, with the old colour coding.
