"help RatingSurvey" for Tmeister's Rating Study!

------------------------------------------------

Tmeister conducted a rating survey comparing ICC ratings to USCF,
FIDE, and WBCA ratings.  Over 300 people responded to the survey.
Thanks to Tmeister and all who contributed.

A very short (and crude) summary is:
1) ICC Blitz ratings are 100 points lower than USCF ratings.
2) ICC Blitz ratings are 50 points lower than WBCA blitz ratings.
3) ICC Blitz ratings are similar to FIDE ratings.
4) ICC Standard ratings are higher than USCF ratings.

Type help RatingSurvey to see the statistics and comments.
