Fide proposes change in rating system

FIDE Mathematician Proposes Changes To Improve Rating Accuracy

Proposed Solution:

Raise the minimum rating to 1400
Increase all ratings between 1000 and 2000 by 400-0 points (with less of an increase for higher ratings), keeping the order but compressing the spacing between players
Implement changes to the initial rating calculations to account for the rapid improvement of underrated new players ... g-accuracy
