    each time i beat a player my rating goes down, admittedly they a rated below me but still, i would have got a better rating had i not played them at all!

    does ranking come purely from wins or statistics with a game, ie checks, pieces taken??

    sorry if this is obvious to everyone else

    Your rating will settle down a little more now that you're past the first 5 games. It may still jump around in a weird way until you hit 20 games completed. You're rating is provisional at this point, but after 20 games you'll be on the same rating scale as everyone else.

    Your rating goes down when you win games because you are not a member.

    Wrong.
    If you are going to answer questions at least answer them correctly.
    The only way your rating can down when you win a game is in the first 20 games under the provisional rating system. After that point, member or not, your rating will never decrease after a win or increase after a loss.
