    fernando J.P. Vasquez was just banned from the site for having multiple accounts. It probably has something to do with your situation.

    When someone gets banned, thier rating gets set to 500.
    You get the points for winning, but it is against a player rated 500

    With all this fuss over ratings, maybe russ should change the name of the site from Red Hot Pawn to Red Hot Ratings.

    Actually, when a high rating player is banned, their games are now resigned with no points allocated. A win is still assigned though.

    Their rating is then reset just to move them off the table.

    Further thought would suggest that you don't.

    i beleive ratings are calculated by the players ratings at the start of the game, and what does this mean for the tournament?

    i'm not overly bothered about my rating-i know i can beat one of my friends otb and he's over 1450 here, so they don't really count for overly much.

    You'd think you knew how the site worked by now. Ratings are calculated on the rating at the end of a game.

    Any players caught cheating and removed from the site will have their points set to zero in any current tournaments. Therefore they will not advance. Their name will appear crossed out in the crosstable.
