I really think that we should not be able to rate our own skill level
can it not be rated according to performance? iehand records are there, why can it not be reflected in our rating

Welcome Saf. I always have look at a player's profile before replying on here and being a chess player myself love the quote on your profile: At the end of the game, the king and pawn go back in the same box :)

As for players rating their own skill level, well there are plenty of delusional people in the world, and sadly a few end up on BBO.

Well - there was a site that rated players just as saf has suggested. It is still operational but hasn't been updated in about 4 years. It has me rated as " expert - " BUT I am nothing more than an intermediate at best. So - not sure that method is any better than self rating.

self ratings are a joke. If you play in an indi game, it's handy to be able to check your partner's skill level as it affects the bids & plays you make.
Why can't people be honest? "novice" level 23... "novice" level 9, 5000 logins.
They must be really slow learners.
