rating categories

Its a purely cosmetic change but perhaps it would be better to adjust the rating categories to: 2200-2400, 2000-2200 etc because thats what they effectively are. Nobody with a 2400+ rating wil join the current 2200-2600 category - they would join the list for 2400-2800. It seems pointless to have the overlap.

Most probably true, however it helps some tournaments (class E, F, G) to start faster. I might change this later though.

There have been several 2200-2600 tournaments in which 2400+ players have started; in one of them even two 2500+ players participated. A well-known GM started in two such tournaments.
The 2400+ category tournaments fill up very slowly; it took about nine months for the last one to start.

Good point Dirk I had not realised that about 2400+ tournaments nor Thibaults point about E F and G tournaments :) You may well be right Garvin - cant remember!
