    I keep seeing people post their ELO rating, which looks different from here. Is it the "official" rating or is FIDE which I have also seen.

    Can anybody tell me what my ELO / FIDE rating is?

    You have to have played in rated OTB tourneys to have a Elo/Fide Rating.

    Mostly, you're probably seeing people posting their FIDE/USCF or other "over the board" (OTB) ratings.
