    Hi,

    How do I create an Open Invite with a rating range?
    Example: Only ratings between 1500 and 2000.

    I cannot see any setings on the Open Invite screen to do this.
    The Advanced settings offer only a set piece match.

    The account setings rating range is only for controlling who challenges me.

    ? thanx

    It's in the Advanced Settings option.
    The two drop-down boxes directly above the set-piece box labeled something min and something max.
    Click the top box and set the minimum rating then click the lower box and select the maximum rating and.....viola! You have set the minimum and maximum ratings for the game.

    Hmmm... I don't have any drop-down boxes above the set-piece box. Maybe this option only exists for registered users? Just guessing. Anyway, it seems that many people use the Game Name to create a rating range, e.g. calling the game "1500-2000 only".

    I believe the set rating option only appears after you have completed the first 20 games (and your rating is non provisional)

    This is correct.

    It would make more sense to enable this rating range restriction feature for open invites - even for provisional rating players.

    Its irritating having to delete games all the time.

    PS: on the topic of irritatating.
    the flashing register icon.!
