Players who have never played in a tournament will not be shown in any ratings list.
Once they play in a tournament, their rating starts at 1600 and for the first 20 games is in a provisional status. This means that while their rating fluctuates either up or down depending on performance, their opponents rating will not change (for the first 20 games).
But, Once my full playing site is complete, ACF will have their own room just for members. This means that when we hopefully have a lot of traffic, people would pay ACf dues just to be allowed in. People just love getting into things that they are not allowed to. This may also help to boost offline tournaments and bringing awareness to the ACF.
Also... I need the ACF to assign an ACF member who wants to moderate the ACF room. I am guessing you will want it to be kept professional and get rid of cheaters.
Completely your choice of course.
