    Can one's rating be shown in forum posts? It saves me having to look up some loudmouths claims with a 1200/provisional rating. If this has been asked before I'm sorry that I'm too lazy to search for the appropriate thread, but the point is a valid one.

    Everyone starts at 1200/provisional. This tells you nothing about their true playing strength.

    What are you on about? I mean that in the forum you will see the following next to my name for example :-

    Joined : 13 Apr '06
    Location : z00t Control Panel
    Moves : 1351
    Total recs : 0

    What I'm suggesting is that there be a column for one's rating so that I can save time instead of clicking on their name to see their rating. ie

    I think this is a good idea.

    There are loudmouths with high ratings and low.
    Are you saying anyone with a lower than such and such a rating is not to be believed or what???

    I have discovered a fair few loudmouths with high-ish ratings and vice-versa too....some highly intelligent people with low ratings.

    Damn with 1804 as your rating if you lose a game you won't be allowed to post in the forums you said?

    Why did you pluralise that when there is only one there? "Use this"; this.

    Because he should have used more than one of them. SO if I'd have said "use this:' " Then that would have implied that he should have inserted one comma into his sentence.
    Use this: .

    And you are showing an apostrophe when I think you mean to show a comma. Of course, I'm only a 1300 rating loudmouth.

    What's it with semantics and some of you cowboys. If we wanted grammar 101 we would have logged on to the appropriate website. If you have nothing related to the matter being discussed then leave the thread in peace.

    Unless the post is a technical one about chess, the rating is irrelevant.

    How about displaying peoples IQs instead ?

    Goes to show your notion of refering to someone's rating in order to ascertain some sort of 'forum posting quality' is pure BS, doesn't it?

    Actually, I think he has a point. When making a challenge to a player you meet in the forum it might be worth it for a quick glance. I wouldn't be against it. But I wouldn't think it is an absolute necessity either. It doesn't sound hard to implement but the Code Monkey would know more about that than I would.

    Its just a query they need to add to the underlying code, its not a big deal. It saves having to click on someones profile and then possibly losing drift of the thread. Asd you have said you can easily challenge someone knowing their rating in the forum.
