If you would like one of the 'Percentages by Waymarking Department' for your waymarking name,
take the URL from one of the above ten and change it to have your waymarking name and see if the file might already be on the site. If the file's not there, send me an e-mail request to the address at the bottom and what waymarking name you want to see. I don't update these that often, because they don't change a lot (0.1%) for frequent posters.
