    After five games your rating will no longer be locked at 1200. After 20 games the 'p' disappears, it becomes a lot easier to get games from experienced players and you appear in the list of players ranked by rating.

    Between five and ten games it is very likely that your rating will seem to behave strangely: it may go down despite you winning a game or up despite you losing. Please read the explanation of provisional ratings in the help pages before complaining!

    One other thing that may surprise you (if you don't subscribe) is that, after you finish a game, it takes a little while before the site recognises that one of your six slots is available.
