No matter what the score is, the resulting ratings are always the same if the beginning ratings are the same and the winner of the match is the same.

Also, the larger the margin of difference is between opponents is the less gain a winning underdog gets. Example:
If a 1000 beats a 1001 the resulting ratings are 1024.92(winner) and 988.46(loser)
If a 1000 beats a 1030 the resulting ratings are 1022.84(winner) and 1016.42(loser)
and so on up to 1000 beating 2000 resulting in ratings of 1000.15 (winner) and 1975.07(loser)
Shouldn't beating a better opponent result in a higher rating than beating a lesser opponent?
Something just seems wrong with this calculator to me.
Elo rating calculator is wrong. The formula is incorrect - it has yet to be updated to latest one.

He fought someone who is 2-0 and is now 3-1 and he has dropped down to 25 he is actually now behind someone who is 0-3. In addition it says his longest winning streak is 4, when in reality its 3 since he is 3-1.

That seems off.
I've checked elo formula and found only one error with longest winning streak always increasing by 1 in some circumstances.

I've played around with my test ladder with different scores and here are the results:

player 1 starts on 1083 and player 2 on 1000; p1 loses 2-3; new elo-ranks are 1057 and 1026

p1 starts on 1000 and p2 on 1057; p1 wins 4-2; new elo-ranks are 1026 and 1031

p1 starts on 1050 and p2 on 1000; game is draw; new elo-ranks are 1047 and 1003

p1 starts with 1047 and p2 with 1031; p1 wins 3-2; new elo-ranks are 1050 and 1025


These are all correct. (A higher k-value will mean one match will alter elo-rating more)

Ok, well I looked at your plug-in and it appeared to use a different template hook...

$template_hook[postbit_userinfo_left]

... I changed it and it still didn't work, so I just manually entered your postbit template into my legacy template so it appears now.
