Damn, this is a long thread. ;P
In playing my first game on Chess.com, I received a rating of 1200, before I played. Why, and how was that arrived at?

hey u got the right criteria of a good chess fighter as u will never tell a lie!! hats off !!!
Indeed a chess rating does not really measure "Chess Strength" because such a thing does not even exist. All it does is measure past performance. End of story.
The only thing that matters in Chess is the moves on the board. Never let a number or a title defeat you or let it intimidate you in anyway. Again, all that matters is the moves on the board.
Best moves is key to win.
I was going to mention the difference in the ratings you can get on different chess sites, but there are so many variables, including how much time you devote to the games, that comparisons are meaningless.
variables may be sort of recipe but devotion and correct move remains there as pivotal!!
Try to avoid wet gloves!! appriciate. Rating 1200 was a standard starting point!! U need to accept a certain point to be ur stand to start.Pl go thru CHESS .COM'S introductory discussion by Erik on the top of this forum page to make ur understanding certain.
Computer analysis most often gives my games 30+% of inaccuracies, mistakes and blunders, and yet I am rated in the top 2% (turn-based). Players rated 2200+ still make their share of mistakes. When I am stuck for a good move, I try to avoid making a really bad move. Making the "best moves" constantly is a pipe dream.
My humble goal within 3 years is to reach 1500 Elo. I don't think I will beat many players. Is it still possible to get a reasonably accurate rating?
I assume you mean over the board chess. You'd need to play a large number of games (maybe 50) against a variety of opponents to achieve a reasonably accurate rating, IMHO. According to my turn-based Glicko RD = 61, meaning there is a good degree of confidence that my playing strength is + or - 122 points, (between 1892 and 2136) and I've played about 300 games.
I will be prepared to play dozens and dozens of games. ;) Thanks.
for that we wish u get thru success!!
2 get ur ratin up highr wud it b wisr 2 ply higr rated plyrs r lowr rated plyers
sorry about hat I was in a rush what I meant to say was
Too get your rating up higher would it be wuser to play higher rated oppenenents or lower rated oppnenents?
I there a way I can have my rating manually lowered?
like to zero?
Seriously, it is better to play lower rated players. However if you are really underrated then maybe the higher rated opponents would get your rating up sooner.
Begs the question...Why would you want to? If you feel you are overrated, your rating will come down soon enough. Sandbagging is the tried and proven method for lowering your rating. Although I don't know how low it is possible to go, probably about 500 or so.
