The CheckerBoard

Mid-October 247Sports community rankings

The top six boards from September remain the same. Among the top five, the only possible No. 1’s would be Round Table and tRCMB. The two are very close in size and have each been No. 1 on-and-off for years now. Front Row, Proving Grounds and Bodda Getta are not close enough to take a second place spot from one of the top two, however the three are close enough to each other that those ranks could change month to month. After that, there are another 15 boards that could grab any of the spots from 6-20. Inside the Bubble has become the most steady of those 15 sites, and is the best bet to jump into the next tier of communities. This month’s largest vault into the top 10 so far is The CheckerBoard, up seven spots into No. 7.
