    I believe that eventually, all banned players have their rating set to 500. It's simply a matter of time...

    Could/is it be possible to play unrated games against oneself without. This would let me practice positions far more easily.

    I noticed that my rating as Exy had been left at 1800 odd. This gave the impression that my account was still active and I was getting loads of game inviations sent to me via email which, as you can imagine, was very irritating. I have asked Russ to set my rating to 500 and make it obvious that my account is inactive.
