    Although I'm playing six games, my stats page shows only 5 games in progress. This morning, my rating was 1899. I have just drawn a game, and my rating has dropped to 1881.

    What's up?

    If you drawed with a player who has a rating lower than yours you lose points and they gain. The more difference in rating, the more points. I have lost more points on some draws than some loses before.

    As far as your games in progress I don't have much idea. I just checked your games and you do have six in progress, and your stats page does say 5. Either seed feedback at the bottom of the page explaining the problem, or wait for someone who knows more about the RHP system to answer and see what they say.

    You should have only lost 8 (I think) points for that draw - the ratings graph shows that you were on 1890 at this point though?

    Seems odd about the number of games though - and the six you have are all fairly well developed - did you have seven games this morning, or do you play very fast?

    I'd do the 'send feedback' thing to get this sorted.

    It's a number in a database, for which you're not contributing financially. You'll get over it...

    Touché, rhb!!! *tugs meekly at forelock*

    I don't really give a Russian duck about the "rating" (which goes up and down like a fiddler's elbow, anyway (and is as closely related to my OTB rating as is Winston Churchill to Mahatma "Bapu" Gandhi)) but rather the "number of games in progress" (which is patently awry.) If there be a bug here somewhere, perhaps it's affecting some other users, too. Following others' helpful suggestion I have sent "feedback."

    You should've made that clear in your first post then.

    It was pretty obvious. Do we have to add "I wouldn't bother, but this may be a bug that also affects other users, so I thought I'd better bring it up" every time we report a bug now?

    At what point in the above post does Mathurine make it "pretty obvious" that xe doesn't give a Russian Duck about the rating?

    It's this expression of emotion (via the worried smiley) that suggested Mathurine did give a Russian Duck about the rating.

    It'd be nice if all users would add that text in future though, seeing as you kindly drafted it. I reserve the right not to.

    What's pretty obvious is that it's an issue that may affect other users, so worth bringing up. I don't give a Russian Duck about her feelings about her rating.

    It's still clear that user xe (she?) was bitching about xer (her?) rating being affected too much by a draw. I do give a Russian Duck about xer (her?) feelings about xer (her?) rating, as I feel the pain of everyone, then I feel nothing (Dsr Jr).

    Thanks for your sensitivity, then.

    Russ has fixed the little bug in question.
