So in the past few weeks I've been in 12 debates and my ELO has not move up nor down a single point. Out of those 12 debates I won 10 and lost 2 and in all of those my opponent's ELO was higher than mine. Is my ELO frozen somehow?

it takes quite a while to update. Either that, or the moderators are uber-fans of that Disney Movie. :P

In my research on ELO this could mean one of two things:

1] Your ELO is in the update process, but I doubt this considering it usually updates the day after one wins (or that is how it is for me).

2] You have done so many debates that now you get considerably less ELO for every win and lose considerable less ELO for every loss. Imabench is a good example of this. Imabench did so many debates that at a certain point his ELO simply began to freeze in place. The same thing is also happening to me, but not on as much of a large level.

However with the fact that your ELO has not changed at all makes me think 2 is unlikely, so it may very well be 1. That is an unusually long update process though.

That's good, I'd be hot under the collar if I don't get a single point for those debates.
