The starting rating selected by a player is simply a rough estimate of their play level based on a set of questions when creating a UTR player profile. This can't be changed by the player once it is set, but will automatically update and reflect the players' skill as soon as the player begins completing matches.
The starting rating that's selected won't prevent a player from registering for an event and a player will show as UR (unrated) on the player list under an event page. Tournament directors are aware that this means a player has limited experience and we suggest the player reach out to the tournament director and provide as much detail about their skill level so they are placed accordingly in the draws.
