Viewing Your Rated Games

A question I often get asked is 'How can I see which of my games have been rated ?' 

The first thing to say is that games get automatically submitted for rating by the ECF League Management System (LMS) on the 7th/14th/21st/28th of each month, and your current rating, based on the games played up until the 28th, will appear in the Rating List on the 1st of the following month. So, for example, games played up until the 28th January will appear in the list published on the 1st February.

If anybody outside of the NSDCA is reading this, then please note that if your League or Club is not using LMS then the above does not apply. In this case you will need to ask your local Rating Officer how often they submit games for rating.

But how do you know which games have been included ? Simply go to the ECF Rating List and enter your surname. On the following screen, click on your ECF Code and then scroll halfway down the screen to where is says View OTB Results / View Online Events. Click on View OTB Results and, on the following screen, enter the year you wish to view from the dropdown list, or enter All Seasons. You can specify Rapidplay or Standard games, although Standard is the default. All of your rated games for the selected period will then be displayed.
