More rating lists ?

What about more rating lists at FICGS ?

- Correspondence chess active & inactive players lists
- Blitz & lightning rating list
- Big chess rating list (class tournaments !?)
- Go rating list

Also there could be casual blitz & lightning chess tournaments with entry fee & prizes, blitz & lightning games with a tiny entry fee (no prize) and more ways to win E-Points...

Feel free if you have any comment or idea...

I think FICGS needs a rating list for active players with an established rating (more than 15 or 30 rated games) like other organizations.

An established rating list would be a very good idea. Therefore maybe people will play more games:-)

Rating lists for established players

I agree with this also. Either that or remove inactive players from the current lists. If a person wants to establish an FICGS rating, let them play some FICGS games!

Rating of new players is very uncertain before they have finished a limit of rated games. After i.e. 30 games it is stabilized, so you can say more about the real strength. In the WC cycle (k.o. matches) rating has an anormous importance. Now is it often accidentally whether someone is high rated or not.
