    April FIDE ratings

    On its official website FIDE has made available a file with expected changes in FIDE ratings. I have checked my name and what a surprise!!!
    Instead of increasing my rating by about 32 points I am actually loosing 40 points.

    The number of games is also wrong. I only played in the Australian Championship, which means I played 11 games, not 19 as in the file.

    I believe there is a some kind of mess up. Somebody with my name played a 8 game tournament, which was counted under my name. Both my first and second name are very common in Russia.


    The site says that corrections need to be sent as soon as possible. Dear rating officers, anything can be done? Thanks in advance.


    P.S. I already had a similar experience more than 10 years ago. I played in 2 competitions with performance rating about 2300, which were counted for somebody else.

    Drug, you really need to decrease the dose. Your unique ID code is 4126505. Copy and paste that into the right place and you'll find that all those other pesky Vladimir Smirnovs will literally disappear. You'll also find that you (like everyone else) is pending concerning Brizvegas.

    Give it two more days.

    [EDIT: okay downloading the FIDE file now ... preparing for big apology]

    Okay,

    Vlad, please accept my apologies for the previous post. As you say, FIDE has you -40 from 19 games and this is clearly incorrect.....

    In my defence, FIDE until now had tournaments and expected changes clickable for each player when they rated them. Sending out an expected change text file is new (serves me right for only directly checking ratings as opposed to the FIDE home page).

    Sending out this text file, when we can't identify what the error is, just causes more vexation, but Vlad I'll try to fix it as soon as.

    FWIW I notice that the 3204081 Andrew Hardegen rated 1934 and 3204383 Andrew Hardengen rated 2002 are both still on the FIDE list as is the deceased Paul Dozsa.

    Well, everything as I expected. They put somebody's results on me. What is the next step? Can you sort it out, Greg?
