    1717If your favorite builder is consistently red, it's likely someone will remove it from the set of core builders.  For example, if I (abarth) notice that your favorite builder is often red for 90% of its past 200 cycles, I'll likely post a patch to remove it from the core set, especially if the redness is due to compile failures and not just a handful of test failures.

    19 Please don't take it personally if someone removes your favorite builder from the core set.  It's not really helpful to have a consistently red builder in the core set.  If the builder is consistently red, that means the core contributors aren't putting in the effort to keep it green, which means it's just noise on the core page.  Having a core builder isn't a good way to convince folks to care about your favorite builder.  Rather, if folks care about your builder, it's helpful to them to put it on the front page.
