    I didn't know how to set a rating limit,on what players ratings that i played were, when i started playing on this site now my rating is low cause all these 1300 to 1500 came on accepted my open invite and slaughtered me.Is there any way to reset this so i can play the 20 games, with players more along the same ratings as me, to get a new rating??

    i know now how to set ratings for people with a score around mine so the games are more evenly matched,...I wanted to know is there a way to get re rated so my rating is more near my actual score.

    I am rated like 1113 and should be closer to 1225,which is because i didn't know how to set a rate limit on people that accepted my open invites,and much higher rated players accepted my open invites and slaughtered me.

    no just play... your true rating will come after say, 30-50 games played. and rating isn't important... i'd rather play someone better than me, lost and learn something than beat up a guy with the same rating as me and learn nothing.

    it's just a number. forget about it.

    Maybe because of this: "Blitz chess is not functioning with the current release of Adobe Flash Player. Version 10,0,45,2. Please see site announcements forum for progress updates on this issue."

    Just wondered if anyone can help me with this riddle: a player on Blitz Chess, really blitzed me off the board, but when I tried to see what's his rating, I can't find him on the Find Player option. Tried every option I can think of, but no luck. Thanks.

    Site ratings are from the normal turn-based play. If a player plays only blitz games he won't have a rating and won't come up in a player search.

    Top right corner, the link that says "Log out"

    Also, create your own thread for help requests instead of taking others of topic.

    Thanks for the info. But what do you do when there is no log off button on the right or anywhere else for that matter?

    you could clear the cache/cookies from the computer you're on when you're ready to finish your session. that will log you off.

    The dark header bar which shows your username and "x games waiting", the last entry at the right-hand side is the logout link. If you can't see it, try scrolling to the right.
