Er, I'm now confused by the statement quoted in Chris's original post: "Players not meeting any of the above requirements are ungraded. A player loses his grade if inactive for two consecutive 6-month grading periods. Old grades are not restored when players return to activity. The player remains ungraded, and his next grade will be calculated using a "starting grade" [my emphasis]". Where does Brian's reply sit with that?
Forgive me if I have misunderstood the source of your confusion. If I can try to help: In Chris's case in January, his starting rapidplay grade will not be his lapsed 143 rapid grade, but his active 166 standard play grade.
Thanks Brian. I was being thick.
