Originally posted by TerrierJackwell some people really do go away and come back to a low rating, but other I would have to think do it for the tourny wins or maybe they like bulling weak players....who knows....
I'm just curious (having only been on the site a little while,) why would someone do this? Just to make their little pencil happy? There's no money involved and pride comes from what you accomplish against odds so what is the point?

about floor rating, how about having a floor rating but if you rating goes bellow it, you just can not enter those tornys, because thats what all the commotion is about.
from what i understand, in the current proposal your rating can go down below that point at all. That right?
Originally posted by SwissGambitow I actually looked at USCF site and saw that other players had a current floor rating, didnt know that before. and i dont have enough games to get one yet. so if my floor rating is say 1400 and i resign 100 games it will stay at 1400. right?

Real rating floors, on the other hand, solve the problem for ALL forms of rated competition. I mean, why should the rating of an established player be allowed to drop so low in the first place? Odds are, it is not due to an actual decrease in playing strength.
Originally posted by Hannilein007As it stands with no ratings floor, there are users losing out on ratings points they should have earned, or stripped of ratings points being beaten by a low-rated sand bagger.
With all tools you destroys the truth of ranking. If you made a floor-rating the rating of all people will goes up; so in three years we are all better than the worldchampion in the real live.
Also no influence to calculation the rating by winning by timeouts, this is in the real world also.
