My rating varies wildly, depending how many games I take on, and how many seconds (or minutes) I decide to spend on each move. Twenty seconds a move is about the fastest that I can keep up. Recently I took on lots of games just for the practice and my rating plummeted, (although I did achieve the coveted red star and on 31 October 2020 I managed second place in the "Most Active Player of the Month" list with 19,245 moves). Now hoping to restore a better work/life/chess balance, and a more respectable rating!
I really don't care about Skulls/timeouts one way or the other! They're just necessary for tidying up sometimes.
