A rating is followed by either a !!, a !, a blank, a ?, a ?? or a g.
A !! indicates a very reliable rating.
A ! indicates a reliable rating.
A blank indicates the rating is unreliable..
A ? indicates the rating is very unreliable.
A ?? indicates the rating is extremely unreliable.
A g following a number indicates the player needs that many more games before he will get a rating.
A x following a rating indicates that it has expired since the player has not played a rated game in over 10 years. If a player with an expired rating returns and plays in an ACF rated event their new rating will be closely linked and in line with their performance rating and not necessarily their old expired rating. A player with an expired rating is not an unrated player.
Only players who have a rating followed by a ! or a !! and have a career total of at least 30 rated games are eligible for listing in the Top lists.
Eligibility for the Top Improvers list requires you to have completed a career total of at least 30 games in the prior ratings list and a rating followed by a ! or !! in both the current list and the previous list.
