Just curious if the Malaysia's list of players is already on the FIDE again and updated? Otherwise there is little use of having an FIDE rated tournament.

The list is still empty as of now. I think that is another matter for the authorized party to take care.

As for the player, if you want to be active in international or fide-rated tournaments, you need it! That's my opinion.

But your concern got some point too!

Malaysian players rating not appearing on the FIDE website is just a temporary glitch for whatever reason that might be. If you care to probe around the FIDE website, rating changes for Malaysian players for Mar09 rating list is already out ie. from DATC 2nd League, National Juniors and Sibu Inter-State.
