The above is my rating. What I don't understand are what those numbers mean? I presume the;
First is my rating.
Second would be the number of games played in that 3 month period.
Third I think is rating deviation (higher the number, the higher my rating will change) However, comparing this to other people, I see some people with a ! behind their rating, yet have a high number as well.
Fourth, no idea.

Can someone point me in the direction to what these mean?

3rd is national ranking, 4th is state ranking. Correct on 1st and 2nd.

The only indication of deviation (I presume you mean standard deviation) is the !!/!/?/?? notations, which are approximate indications of reliability.

AHH! that makes sense. Thanks for that.

Ah, I've wondered what those numbers meant too.
