Thanks for your reply.

There is a discussion about doing the same for the israeli rating and I am against it.

Somebody asked me if there are countries who already did it.

The reason for my objections are:
1)There are players who are weaker than the minimal fide rating that is 1000 and I do not want to prevent them to play for rating.

2)I think that the fide rating is not fair at the low levels and it is better to use a israeli rating to get decisions like the players that the israeli chess federation should support by giving them training at young ages.

I believe that K=40 of fide is clearly too high for players below 2300 that already have a lot of games(at least when we talk about players that are at level above 2000) and I also believe that there is a problem with the fide formula for new players that use the average of their opponents(it means that practically a player who play in a strong tournament can get higher fide rating than the fide rating that he deserve because he lost in the first round against a strong player(and without this loss he could get lower fide rating).

The fact that tournaments when the player lost all his games are not included also help to give a higher fide rating then the player deserve for a new player.

A player may get lower fide rating then the rating he deserve in case of scoring more than 50% but these cases are not common.
