    I intend Mike/DArt.com to answer this question as he is the admin most of all. If anyone knows he can too.

    I wanna ask this because the max and min on DDO was 9000, 1000.

    Suppose there are none, then will someone as [insert swear word here] like Type1 gain a negative ELO? or will it stay at 0?

    There's no way to get negative elo ever, all systems have a cal of 0 there. Typically tbe maximum elo possible is double whatever the default Elo is. There's no true maximum but it ends up being the fact that around 1.5x the standard Elo, you find no consistent winner amongst the group amd if there really is a kingpin powerhouse, they still struggle to find WILLING opponents to face them anymore who are high enough elo to gain them anything at all. This is the key point. People were scared shitless of Kasparov, it's why he began to get elo-capped even though he wasn't losing, people just avoided facing him in general. Oromagi is this site's Kasparov.

    The min is 0, the max is 3000, if I remember correctly.

    Oh, this site is far from populous. there is barely anyone even 400 away from the initial value. There is only a single person.

    Yeah but it gets more difficult to get the points after reaching some rating so I guess it's one of the reasons. The other one is as you said, the site is not that popular.
