    i think the nice thing with ratings is you can play people rated closer to yourself.  It gets frustrating to always lose to better people, even though thats how improvement is made

    Oh hell no, Netscape was not self-censoring.  When I was growing up in the 90's Netscape Navigator was porn central for me!

    Then what the hell was wafflle's joke?

    Presumably implying that the problems with the website were due to him using an outdated browser.

    Forget all about rating and just play your best-chess.

    Internet-ratings practically meaningless. Particularly on here until software-users are finally eradicated (The site IS trying!)

    GlickoRD and ELO are comparable but as stated without fair-play controls there is no point getting worked-up about it.

    Sorry guys...

    You can do anything and be anything! Go all out for 2200 for starters!! (NM in USA). Load your PC with Rybika, Fritz & Houdini. Play cat & mouse with the site's detection-systems whilst wallowing in new-found-glory of being respected and admired high-rated player on chess.com.

    The world will be your oyster. Girls will telephone you constantly. Lucrative job-offers will fill the mail-box. Fawning-admirers will send fan-mail.

    net ... just curious, and hypothetically speaking, of course, but what kind of job offers are we talking about?  :)

    I see some problems with Elo. 

    Firstly, some countries have inflated ratings because the "1800s" aren't that good(no offence meant).

    Other countries, like India, have 1500s who could give GMs a run for their money.

    Therefore, every year, I would adjust the ratings to avoid such inflation.

    Yeah, every year we should all let Vyomo arbitrarily decide certain countries are over rated and drop the ratings of all their players.

    I wish there were a systematic unbiased way to adjust ratings.  Ideally something that could be applied after every tournament, or after every game even.

    If some mathematician came up with a way I'm sure there would be applications outside of chess too.
