For chess enthusiasts in Malaysia, the missing Fide ratings for Malaysia on fide.com is a cause of major concern. As Malaysia has many chess players that are active and listed on FIDE rating pages, as well as one of the top 100 countries in the chess playing world, the missing FIDE ratings is most disconcerting.
Based on feedback from Malaysian Chess Federation (MCF) officials is that MCF has taken action to rectify the situation and that it happened was regrettable. The ratings for Malaysia should be back online by next Wednesday, 13 January 2010, barring anymore hiccups.
That’s the update.
