Beginning today users with less than 500 points won't be included in the Global Ranking.

You'll mostly notice this in the "Site Rank" info on user profile pages.

Reasoning behind this change:

We want to make the global ranking more accurate by not counting users who just create an account to try RetroAchievements for a couple of days and then vanish.

The minimum of 500 points represents less than an average mastered set, and we think it's a reasonably fair entry point to define a user as "engaged enough to be in the ranking".


Thanks Searo-man for implementing it!

That’s great. I’ve only joined this site a few weeks ago and found it a bit annoying that I was already in the top 13% now. Didn’t feel like I’d worked for it. Good job 👍

That explains it! At first I thought y'all had purged a bunch of users, but this makes more sense.

Finally I can see (Top #%) that isn't just 1 and 2!

would it be possible to have below 1% as a top% so if you are below 1% it would be like 0.9% or 0.7 and even take it further for like say voice is 5% but ben is like 4.8%

It would be cool to see a more defined amount.

Mainly cosmetical change but logical. There must be many dead accounts on the site

Hardly cosmetic. It took the number of leaderboard participants from 98k to 29k. Quite a big difference.

But I guess none of the inactive accounts will argue about this change

When I saw that I down to 2% and that there were less than 30 000 users, I was afraid ! I thought the site had been hacked and our accounts will be deleted little by little !

My little heart...

Otherwise, it's a great thing, it will make it "more readable" (in the sense of our progress), the 500 points limit is pretty honest. Keep up the good work... i will try to go again to the top 1% ;)
