Statement by the competition organisers, Better Skills, Better Life Limited.

The Monthly £30 Prize Fastest Typist Competition is organised by Better Skills, Better Life Ltd. The company’s website is www.bsbltyping.com

In any skill-based activity, there are those who have average skills and those who have varying levels of super-skills. The intention of the structure of competitions below is that everyone will have a chance to have a placing on a scoreboard and that those competitors who have a higher level of skills will achieve the rank of Winner, Champion or Famer and will compete within the level that they have reached.

The aim of the competition is that it will become four separate levels of competition.

  1. The BSBLMonthly £30 Prize Fastest Typist Competition
  2. The BSBL Monthly Fastest Typist Winners Big Match
  3. The BSBL Monthly Fastest Typist Champions Big Match
  4. The BSBL Monthly Fastest Typist Famers Big Match

It is obvious from the nature of this structure that it will take time to for players to move through the various levels and to get enough competitors at each level to enable competitions to take place. In order to deal with this situation, those players who have achieved the level of Champion will be allowed to compete in the Winners Big Match competitions until there are sufficient (10) Champions to hold a Champions Big Match. Similarly, until there are sufficient (7) Hall of Famers to hold a Famers Big Match, Famers will be allowed to compete in Champions Big Match Competitions. Once there are sufficient Winners, Champions and Famers at each level then this provision will cease.
