    Is there a way of creating an Open Invite that can only be accepted by non-provisionally rated players?

    You could put a minimum rating of 1201 on it. That would keep most out.

    Of course it's possible.

    Use the advanced option when setting up the invite.

    Good idea, but when I go under the Advanced Options, it only lets me choose minimum ratings from a list: 1100, 1200, 1300..... and so on. It will not allow me to enter 1201.

    Set up min=1300 max=1400, you'll eliminate all the p1200's and catch poeple with ratings equal to or just above your rating.

    Yeah, that would be fine if I didn't dip into the 1200's so often! If I only play people in the 1300's, I'll be below 1200 in no time flat.

    Use the advanced option when holding your breath.

    When they beat you, it only costs you half the points.

    if u dont wanna play them, but do wanna play 1200 ratings, just delete the game as soon as a p picks it up and create a new one.

    I have a reverse problem - I request "P1200 only please" and EVERY time a non-provisional picks the game up. So I bin it (unless they've asked nicely) and have to do the request again. It doesn't reappear automatically the way it does when the opponent does the binning.

    Set them up with ANY rating limit and provisionals cant accept them.
    [eg, over 500]
