    Anyone think it would be a good idea if when creating an open invite, the minimum rating is restricted to say 100 points below the invitee's own rating?

    I only say this because certain people bombard the Open Invites with multiple games, and they are all asking for people at least 200 rating points below their own...

    Or maybe you should only be allowed to create one or two open invites at a time?

    I find the opposite problem more annoying. 1300 rated players asking for >2000 games. Pointless and cluttering up the list with a bunch of games less than a hundred people can possibly accept (82 currently).

    In the past I've proposed a fix such that the range on an open invite must contain the inviters own rating. Therefore if you were rated 1450 you could ask for 1200-1600 but not 1500-1900 or 1000-1400. Some may think that this is a bit harsh but if you want a teaching game or similar you should be PMing people directly rather than just setting up an invite.
