I don't think rating would change unless you take part in the contest and make any submissions.

A user is said to be have participated in or attempted a contest , if he makes a submission ( irrespective of whether its successful or unsuccessful ) .

So yes, if the user has attempted some problems , that is tried but submitted unsuccessful sumbmissions ; he is considered for rating and his rating decreases.

Another case might be that he did solve the problems successfuly ; but was caught by plagiarism detector ; and then his record of successful submission gets deleted and his rating decreases.

However, if a user doesn't make a single sumbmission in the contest , he is not considered for rating .

Hope this clears.
