RATING Is it possible to go from a less than 1000 rating to a more than 1600 rating in a month and a half. Can a person improve that much?

An idea... If you have access to (lets say) 25 on-line computers... You can make multiple accounts and play youself without being caught... Start multiple games against yourself so your one chosen account will look good... Increase your winnings and your ratings... And look good for nothing... Cause in the end on-line ratings amounts to ziltch in the real chess world... But if one has nothing better to do in life than waste it away on an illusionary false fact... Then I guess that is their choice...

Don't get me wrong... I have a big heart for the game of chess... I just wish some would want to learn the inner depths of the game (which this site is disigned for) instead of logging on and trying to fool the world for nothing, just because they can... You gave to ask yourself... "Do I have an identity or is this computer my identity?"... If the computer is your identity and this is all you have... Your a sad individual... I will pray that you learn more about life...

Bro...

....... I'm pretty sure it's possible because I gained about 200 in the past month myself and I'm far from one of the better players here. I had over 60 games going at one time (never again). I try to find players my own rating or higher and sometimes lower rated who are friends or look interseting when I'm shopping for a game. If it's really important to gain rating I think it's possible by selective choice of opponets and playing a lot of games. I just got obsessed with it for a while there....not my rating...just playing. 60 games at once is way to much for me. Right now I'm playing mostly League games (love it), Tournaments and a few friends and newbies.
