Don;t trust it, maybe it's just me and the heady mixture of my own incompetence allied with the settings button ... I set for '2000 rates invited' and I get a weirdo rated 1700..deleted I throw it back and the ongoing lottery provides me with a 1300 but appears normal enough..I grabbed it thinking I'm indeed fortunate... rarely do they work according to plan lol..

Provisionals apparently cannot accept rating-specified open invites at all. I want to play p1200s (to encourage newcomers to stick around) but if I put p1200 in the game name I almost always get someone who isn't a p1200. So how else can I get games with newcomers to the site?

Maybe you could make a suggestion in the "site ideas" forum to expand the Open Invite advanced options to allow setting the rating limits to include provisional rated players as well.
