Is a rating of 1400 considered advance or expert?

Jackmated, you've been here for more than four years. 1400 is slightly above the average rating here. Expert strength is 2000-2199 in the USCF.

My blitz rating is 941 and I am in the 50% percentile... so I would imagine 1400 is well above average.

<1000 beginners

1000-2000 intermediate

2000+ experts

This site is way overrated!! 

Buy a good mouse/mouse pad and push pieces here! 

Unrated player , Fide rating 0, like me can get 2000+ in blitz/bullet!

There was a chess player named Claude Bloodgood who reached a very high USCF rating, and there has been a lot of speculation on how he got the rating. He was in prison for life for murder. I met him in postal chess in the 60s. I don't believe he was stronger than weak expert over the board. I became disenchanted in playing chess while we was still in touch. I think he wanted to get his rating up to expert or master back then. He also was some kind of USCF chess organizer in prison. He asked me to play some fake matches since I was on the other coast of the USA. I think I threw him 24 games, maybe 23 - 1, which of course was ridiculous at the time. My rating went down 200 - 300 points, and I never played again. I in fact never did play much OTB, I was a postal player from day 1. After my opponents were using computers about 1988, I quit chess of all play. One guy said my computer is 2388, what are using to beat me? That was enough of chess for me. I in fact once owned a computer company that made chess software, Paul Whitehead teaches chess. Jay Whitehead passed away not long ago. Last time I say him was about 12 years ago in the airport in Japan. He was still a Hari Khrishna. I knew him when he joined the cult, I can tell you why and what was going on in his brain.

I was sorry to learn he passed early, I remember him as a good guy. Anyway, on the Claude Bloodgood thing, he was a wannabe top chess player, and probably bought his way or talked his way into a high rating, which is unlikely to get inside a prison.

Ratings here is good enough, but different environments  have different scales, that dont necessarily are equal. If you have 2200 bullet, it dont say much more than that you are a lot better than me and many other players in bullet. How we do in longchess is another story, where your 1523 rating indicates that you are better, but close enough to get an exiting game.

Heck man i started at 1000

Why not? All rating in this site should take -200 due to bogus rating.. And then here is +/- 100rating gap between OTB vs rapid rating. +/-200 in blitz vs OTB, +/- 300 between bullet vs OTB. If he is 2200 bullet, his OTB should be between 1700-2300.

Ratings on chess.com do not have to be very accurate.

My very low rating of 1658 for Live Bullet is not accurate at all

The first games the rating goes very much up and down, after more games it will stabilize.
