I used to play Go gosh 20 years ago but have not played since. Like many the alphago matches have spark my interest again. When registering I did not see how to reflect my past experience. I didn’t feel right claiming to be a beginner, but I never had a ranking, we were just playing face to face on a board. So I just blew past the rating question and ended up with a higher rating than I deserve. How can I correct this?
You’ve already done it by posting in the forums maybe say what rank you think you should be, also you might get a quicker response posting in the help chat, which can be located under the global channels.
Thank you for your response.
I have been looking far away to contact someone at online go but I have not figured out how to post a message to anyone there. What do you mean by “the global channels?”
I have no idea regarding level. I am happy to start as a rank beginner and earn my rank, but perhaps that is not fair to my opponent. I have won and lost games against the computer at 21k, so maybe 21k?
