    If you start off at zero you could end up with negative numbers.

    I believe most rating systems have a built in minimum. For the USCF it is 100.

    What if you lose at 100 USCF? It just stays there?

    Yes it stays there. I thin scholastic chess this is bit of an issue as there is a pile of 100 player. USCF also had personal floors below which ones rating cannot fall. That really breaks the system if aging players do stop going to tournaments
