playchess.com chess peice ranking I was informed that the chess peice ranking (pawn, knight, Bishop, rook, queen, king in that order) was allocated by activity on the playchess server. I go on nearly everday to play but only have a ranking of pawn?
Also on a different note i thought it would be interesting to compare elo, gameknot and playchess.com (or icc is similiar) ratings.
My elo rating i would estimate at 1800, this estimation is reasonably accurate after converting my national rating from australia, my current gameknot rating is 1662 and has been as high as 1702, my current playchess.com rating is about 1880 and has been as high as 1990.
I find my ratings do not vary as much as other people. But its interesting to compare different ratings. Also when i say elo i mean fide rating.

... i'm not sure what this has to do on the GK server...

it has nothin to do with the GK server, this forum doesn't really have anything to do with the GK server. If you have a look its about chess in general, which this topic falls under.

convert to elo how exactly do you convert your national rating to its elo counterpart.

it is reasonably easy to predict when you compare others who have national and fide ratings, then you can look at the difference and get a rough idea.
