    I just played a game against a 1800 rated player and won! And I beat a few 1700 and 1600 rated players too. Is there a different rating system for the site or something?? Here's my game against the 1800 rated player.

    There isn't a different rating system, just a different (more casual) pool of players. I find a 2000 there is roughly on the level of an 1800 on ICC. However, you still deserve some congratulations.
