I am very confused by the rating system used at this site. For example, in Axio, I have played more than the minimum to get an established rating, yet when I win, my rating goes down. Why is that?

Why is my rating something else then I expect?
If you have played less than 15 games of a particular game, you have a provisional rating (indicated with a *). This means your rating can fluctuate a lot and can for example go down if you win (against somebody with a lower rating) or go up if you lose (against somebody with a higher rating). It also can mean your rating will not change if you win or lose. If you have a final rating those 'strange' fluctuations will not appear anymore.

I had 16 games completed and then I won game 17 and my rating went down, that is why I was confused and posted. Can anyone explain?

You've won 10 ratingpoints. You can see that in your history. You had 1649 and now 1659 https://www.yourturnmyturn.com/history.php?username=RayGarrison&searchname=&game=axio&submit2=Search
Your Ratingconsequences do also depend on the rating of your opponent.
When you click during a game on the [i] symbol above the move list you can see what your Rating consequences will be.
For instance your rating is
(now : 1483)
If you win: 1497
Draw: 1484
Lose: 1472
