    Check my previous answer regarding unrated players in thread http://www.chesschat.org/showthread.php?t=1554

    I should add that it isnt if the player is listed as Unr or NEW on the current list but if they are listed that way on the list in which they played the rated player that matters. If they are listed as Unr or NEW in that list then they were still unrated at the end of the new period and hence had no effect on the rated player.

    I visit chess club in Ukraina and nobody care about rating. In Australia everyone talk too much about rating. People should respect opponent who is better learn from defeat. Maybe this is why Russian and Ukrainian player better than Australian player we do not care about rating. I have friend in Ukraina who is woman grandmaster she do not know her rating. I dont know my rating

    Maybe there are about a hundred stronger reasons.

    I'll leave that for the ACF FIDE Ratings Officer to answer.

    To get a FIDE rating u need to play 9 games with FIDE rated opponents. That can only be done in blocks. A block should contain at least (if I am not mistaken ) 4 games. Say, if you played only 2 FIDE rated games in Queenstown, they would not count.

    i think greg has already mentioned somewhere that a block is 3 consecutive games in a tournament against fide opponents

    but then again my memory might be playing tricks on me

    Yes, as I mentioned here, it is 3 games and has been for some time, although there is no need for the games to be consecutive within the tournament. Also, after the first block, a player has 7 more lists (i.e. 2 years in total) to get 9 games.

    Of course, Amiel was just shit-stirring in the first place, which seemed to escape drug's attention.
