  •   Comment I have the same opinion here as I did on ARWU university ID (P5242): "I'm generally not a fan of university rankings because of the arbitrariness of section weighting, the extent to which universities can misrepresent themselves to get better rankings ([2]), and general focus on just the elite institutions. Adding a property perpetuates a system I see as pretty problematic. But I won't get in the way of a property that others find useful." Runner1928 (talk) 15:03, 30 July 2018 (UTC)
