Some regular BB posters ratings:

:( I'm shocked that you'd overlook me Bill. ;)

Mind you, the fewer people that see my sorry rating the better.

I explained I just copied my the equivalent post from the Dec 2004 ratings thread.

That'll change next time around .... I'm going to be playing a small number of rated games on a fairly regular basis now. I fully expect my rating to rocket upwards into the mid-1200s! <laughs at self>

BTW, AC: Jared beat me in a friendly game last night. I'm detecting a pattern in his play ... he's very cool under pressure ... I had rooks and bishops trained on his king, but he defended carefully and I over-reached with an un-sound rook sac. Then he squashed me like a bug. :doh:

I am in a better mood today, not so sick, so I will look at his game. If he is better than you invite him to a cc game with me.

There is apparently an error in the WA ratings due to a coding error.
I will correct it tonight when I get home and send out new reports.

The Melbourne Open was submitted for rating in this period even though it had been processed in the Dec 2004 period.

As such there are a number of differences in the reports.
The new reports follow.

Your overall performance rating for March was below your Dec rating hence the drop.

It's interesting that very few of the top 20 juniors have gone up since the last rating list. Raymond gained 30 odd points, and Vincent Suttor gained 89 to break into the list. The rest of the players seems to be about the same or a little lower than December. Overall the list is substantially lower due to the loss of the 20 year olds (including Smerdon).

Congratulations to our own Gold Coast Matt Sonter, the quiet achiever that does so much for our kids on the Gold Coast.

He is the first Queenslander (as far as I know) to have pushed his rating over 2000 without winning the Australia Championship since David Smerdon. A great effort, and thanks to Bill too, cause he could never have done it without those extra points you've pushed up our way.

All 10 could not have possibly been rated. The main reason would be that the rating system could not assign ratings to 4 of your opponents (they were previously unrated and scored 0% or 100% within the rating period).
If you wish to know exactly why send me a PM with your name.

Listen Chess Nut

Just because your rating is approaching mine don't think that you are necessary any better.

I have been out of comp for years, people who previously were hundreds below me skite that they are now ahead of me because their rating has left mine for dead. But when we play I still thump them just like I used to.

It is only numbers mate, it can be an illusion.

The rating calculator player lookup function has been updated with March 2005 ratings. Also the March 2005 ratings lists have been added to the ratings list download section. I just noticed how popular the March 2004 rating list was with something like 322 hits. I hope people find the offsite March 2005 list just a popular. Perhaps even moreso when the next ratings list is released and the March figures are no longer available from the ACF website.

The links are...

Wouldn't it be smarter to import the players from the previous list and manually up-date the ratings? That is what I propose to do for my club's championship beginning tonight.

I would not think Bill wants them, because I guess he just works from the ACF ID and uses his record of ratings.
But you would probably need to key them in so you could pair using ratings?

I have just sent a new set of rating reports to the ACF webmaster and all state rating officers.

The following mesasage was sent with the files.

It was discovered that a number of coding errors mainly for WA players going back to 2001 had occurred.
As such I have programatically cross checked 62,219 players names and id numbers in all tournaments from Dec 2000 thru to Mar 2005. Where either the surname or first name in the SP tournament file did not match the exactly the name on the SP master file, I did a manual cross-check.
In any given rating period there can be up to 300-400 requiring manual check, mainly due to tournament organisers not importing players from the ACF master file.
Fortunately out of these 62,219 from all rating periods, only 10-20 required correcting.
However because of the interaction between players far more than just these 20 players have had there ratings effected. However the vast majority were by less than 1 point.
After correcting them I reran all rating periods from Dec 2000 thru to March 2005.

The SP master files have also been sent out.
