My inspiration to start this thread came from playing in the Tas rapid series. So in the rapid series there were quite a few AFAIK players without rapid ratings and a few with. So if everyone that wasn't rapid rated was given something like 1000 for everyone then someone is bound to get overrated. If not then how does this happen?

And if a player has no rating at all then they're not given a start rating like 1000, but rather they get a rating after they have played enough games.
