    What d'you think (no bias?) would be the rating ranges for the following categories of skill levels: Elite, accomplished, good, average, inexperienced/bad, terrible.

    Example 0-600 terrible etc

    below 2000: patzers
    above 2000: cheaters

    just kidding

    The USCF has a system that makes sense. You could adopt it too.

    2200+ master
    2000-2199 expert
    1800-1999 A class
    1600-1799 B class
    1400-1599 C class
    1200-1399 D class
    etc.

    The Russians have a similar system: master, candidate master, etc.

    Newbie ( I don't like calling people negative names like "bad" and "terrible": under 1000

    One almost thinks of satire when the USCF does something well, as if they do it to spite us.
