wasn't talking about ratings! ;) I think that like most people I just ocasionally rated players once I had reached the gold, ratings can be acheived very easily compared to any other medal ;)

I don't think the others will be set as high as 1500. Only ratings.

Nothing happened yet? Well I hate to say I told you so (not really) but this is what happens in programming, issues pop up and deadlines get pushed. So to go out and announce it before everything was finished, wasn't very smart.

well if it was pretty much done and they knew that some were pressuring to get this going( :twisted: ), we can't really blame them, no harm done if it takes a few extra days, just hope we're not talking of a month !
