    I know that ratings aren't the point of this site, but is it possible to lose a game and still see your ratings rise?

    Only if you have a provisional rating. See the FAQ

    I believe the current ratings system will provide the maximum ratings boost if I win against a player rated 200 points higher than me and it doesn't make a difference for 201+ points. Similarly for losing to a player 200 points below you. But what if you play someone 200 points higher than you and lose?

    Try the ratings calculator of 'gregoftheweb': (not designed for provisional ratings though)
