[blind-chess] Re: Policy change on other tournaments

Hi Richard, 

To be fair to everyone, I agree with your policy.  It could easily get out of 
hand when the group gets bigger.  Keep it simple!

  Hi All,

  In the welcome letter I sent members after the first few that joined this 
list, I stated that we would rate all games including other tournaments as long 
as both players were members of this list.

  I think that will eventually lead to unsymmetrical results where tournaments 
are concerned and so I am proposing that tournament games sponsored by other 
groups either be excluded or be treated as friendly games for rating purposes.

  To date only two game scores are affected by this change and I can easily 
remove the games from my records.  If I wait until there are many such games it 
will be a lot of work, so I want this decided quickly.  I will adjust the 
affected players so there is no loss in their current rating.

  If you have comments or questions on this proposal please let me know right 
away.

  Richard
