I look for new arrivals to play against, because so many of them just play other p1200s who make a move or two and then disappear. That must cause quite a few to lose interest and wander off. I figure at my rating level I have nothing to lose even if they turn out to be strong players.
I rarely see a p1200 offering a game in Open Invites, and it's no use my putting games up there because I can't nominate p1200 as an option.
Russ, encouraging newcomers to the site is to your benefit - could we have an option somewhere that would make games available only to p1200 players?
