    I'd really like to see something in My Settings to turn off the display of ratings, either during the game or everywhere on the site. Similar to the "green spot" where the player gets the choice to display or not to display. Once the game is created, rating numbers are a distraction from the game.

    Perhaps in tournaments it might be considered an option ? Perhaps you're suggesting, if starting an open tournament, that 'some' may feel intimidated by opponents rates.. switching the rates off may indeed help but it'd be interesting to see what influence the rate does actually hold..both before and after the 'switch off' and the stats of the regular lower rate tourney player. I'm afraid it's unlikely to happen but it's still an interesting prospect..

    It's really my own rating that I don't want to see.

    lols..I didn't see that one coming...
    How about extremely dark glasses, so you can JUST see the board...OR, better still, how about you put a piece of black sticky tape on your monitor...right over your rate..I have more ideas if you need them but either above might aid greatly

    Sounds like a great solution - maybe I'll try that.
