    I am provisional right now and I think it shows disrespect when a provisionally rated person accepts a game that asks for no provisionally rated players.

    I don't understand why they accept them. But just so you all know, I have more respect and won't accept any game that asks for no p players.

    regards

    You cannot get rid of provisional ratings. They are there for the reason that all players start at 1200, and if you are very good, you have to get to a high rating quickly.
    The problem lies indeed with the open invites, so please check there.

    How about just adding extra options (such as no provisinals) to the create game page? Seems like that would solve the problem.

    This is in the next release. (Available in the next few hours, with luck πŸ™‚)

    By creating an open invite game limited to a rating range you are effectively blocking provisional players - as their true rating is not yet known.

    Just made the first ever open invite with your new limits πŸ™‚

    Just out of curiosity does it apply to current rating or the haighest n 30 days rating used for tournaments?
