K factor & FIDE ratings
FIDE decided to increase the K factor so that ratings change quicker...
Does anyone have an opinion on these changes ?

In the long run I think it will average out. Ratings will be very dynamic in short periods. Being a EE engineer I sort of like the smoother curve integrated concept, so I think I would opt for no change. This means I believe that in any cycle period a more accurate rating of the player can be viewed with the curve smoothing integration concept. For example a very common use of this is in the stock market where, daily, weekly changes can be very dynamic. A often used example use of this method is "30 day running moment of integration" to clarify the picture. Wayne

Thanks for sharing your opinion Wayne, in comparison, the "K factor"-like here at FICGS is really high, I still wonder sometimes if it should be changed or not even if it allow players to find their place in the rating list quite quickly...
