    As well as your current rating, it would be nice to have an average rating from the last 100 games.
    This would give a more accurate measure of your ability.
    It would also be much harder to manipulate.
    Finally it would cushion the blow after 4 or 5 quick losses, where your current rating takes a real hammering.

    More variable, but wouldn't 20 games be a better idea, then every non-provisional player would have a rating based on the same number of games for this.

    Sounds like a very good idea, but why not just have an average of your total rated games, regardless of the number? Seems like that would be the most representative of a persons skill.

    Sounds good to me. Esopecially where tournaments are concerned. By some freak of fluke or something i have just gone over 1400 and sank back down again just as quick. This means that next banded tournie, I will be thrown in with 1400's to 1600's and I won't stand a chance. Suppose It would be a challenge though mind.
