    So what are you saying? A cushy nice profile should be set up for what... all top rated players until they decide they arrive here to actually play games? 

    I honestly don't think chess.com just takes it upon themselves to create a page for the players in hindsight of never knowing whether they will play at the site. More likely, they created the profile for them while prepering events, like the world chess or even death matches. I don't believe they do this without permission of the actual player.

    Its only famous players, not ordinary FMs and CMs

    Define famous, I know some famous FM's and CM's.

                   Its called professional curtesy.  If you owned a restaurant, would your mother get a free meal now and then??    Why don't you Google famous. Your too young to understand.

    My point is that well known titled players get their accounts created for them, and their ratings are set. However, not all titled players have their accounts created for them, and so not all titled players get their ratings automatically

    Can you show us an example of a titled player having to go through the official motions?

    But they do create the accounts, and the proof is right here. Search up any well known  super GM, and their account will be here

    Seems a bit strange to be honest.

    Like what everyone else has to do, get their rating the hard way. And I truely am inclined to believe, chess.com rating is harder than the real life scenario. Plus, you encounter cheats frequently here which doesn't help.

    Sure. This FM, from what I remember, was the youngest USCF expert in history.

    Yes he did. In case you're wondering, his first game shows his rating somewhere in the 1300s, but that was his rating after the game; thats what chess.com always shows

    A GM with a massaged ego is more likely to play on your site.

    Or, less likely to screw up your rating system. (not that starting them higher is a perfect solution, but it's a better fix than no fix at all)

    When Judit Polgar played Nigel Short, they were both well-known GM's with well established ratings, The ratings you saw on the screen were their FIDE ratings not their Chess.com ratings

               post 48;   I'm in my 30's.  That's even more embarassing. What is your point??

    They made it their chess.com ratings because they where playing blitz 3 minute games with ratings at the site according to their real life rating.
