What's the criteria for leaderboard rankings on challenges?

It doesn't seem to be solely based on speed.

Does it factor in age and incorrect attempts?

Just curious.

Hi Arjun,

Right now the leader board is ranked by who has the most points in your level so far that week, with ties being broken by lifetime points. That is why people who solve problems early, climb up the leaderboard, and then get edged out. We are looking into changing this in the near future. Peter Taylor Staff · 3 years, 7 months ago

@Peter Taylor Hi, can you please tell the future criteria?

Shouldn't we get some weightage for submitted solutions in that particular topic ? Jatin Yadav · 3 years, 7 months ago

@Jatin Yadav Well we are still deciding...

We are considering just listing everyone who has solved all four problems per category in the week. In this system we might make the order their faces are displayed random, or we might rank them in order of solution upvotes, we are still debating.

What do you think would be the best way to award glory and celebrate interesting people on Brilliant? Peter Taylor Staff · 3 years, 7 months ago

@Peter Taylor The primary reform should be that you should consider points for problems solved in that particular topic whose leader board is shown , not all the lifetime points. Different people are good at different topics. Jatin Yadav · 3 years, 7 months ago

@Peter Taylor I like the idea that everybody gets displayed who solves all four problems, and I also like the idea that people are ranked by solution upvotes. Michael Tong · 3 years, 7 months ago

@Peter Taylor Would it be possible for everyone to view the same people on the leaderboard (regardless of level)? William Cui · 3 years, 7 months ago

@William Cui It's not currently possible. Would you like it to be? Peter Taylor Staff · 3 years, 7 months ago

@Peter Taylor well, i don't think that would be a good idea. Leaderboards should be different for different levels Jatin Yadav · 3 years, 7 months ago

@Peter Taylor Yeah, I think it would be better for there to be just one leaderboard for everyone. William Cui · 3 years, 7 months ago

@William Cui For the record, William we side with Jatin on this one. We believe it should be easier to see the achievements of people of different levels, but we do not think it is a good idea to rank everyone in one long list. Peter Taylor Staff · 3 years, 7 months ago

@Peter Taylor Ok, I can see your point. Thanks! William Cui · 3 years, 7 months ago

@Peter Taylor Always the Same People see the Ranking! Another method would be interesting as a time resolution, so there a Diversification Ranking! Gabriel Merces · 3 years, 7 months ago

@Peter Taylor Huh? I solved all 4 problems for combo3 and I have more lifetime points than the first place person but I am not even in the top 20... (this happened a couple times) Ryan Soedjak · 3 years, 7 months ago

@Ryan Soedjak Well, that is probably not the criteria for getting on the leaderboard then... William Cui · 3 years, 7 months ago

@Peter Taylor Thanks.

The current system doesn't seem too bad, though I guess it would make more sense to use points in that level and that category for each category's ranking, with overall points per week and then lifetime points for ties. Arjun Pitchanathan · 3 years, 7 months ago

@Arjun Pitchanathan Yeah the current system isn't too bad, but it could be a lot better, and we intend to improve it. The current system made a lot of sense when we were a young site. These days the leaderboard has evolved to just be a ranking of lifetime points. While that is an interesting and valuable thing to look at, it does not change that much, and it is not the most interesting way to celebrate what people are achieving on Brilliant every week.
