    I've noiticed that 7 of your 14 games weren't rated; if you play a non-rated game your rating won't change regardless of whether you win or lose.

    EDIT - I have deleted this message as the issue I stated in previous post is being taken care of

    HMM. that's a good catch, eyeqpc! I looked up rrr's profile and those 7 games against Blobby are the only games he's "played"; he also has 5 games in "progress" and in all 12 he has never made a move. Looks like some "funny bidness" to me!!
    Update - anybody interested in the story behind the above should go to the "Cheating to increase your rating" thread in the GENERAL forum

    maybe your game is unrated
