I was wondering Max, do you have an easy way to access my performances in all challenges I've taken part of please? Once again an easy way, don't bother if it's too much work for you or inaccessible. Thanks for your work!

I don't think so. There's a new kid in town doing a lot of stats. I'd like to see yours updated though.

Is there a way to find a list of past official challenges with winners? I can only find official and unofficial mixed, ordered by last one contributed to (which is no order at all). Just curious about the 4 I won - I found the years and have a hunch about the subjects, but I wish there were a convenient way to check.

Hehehe... I can usually get the answer to these sorts of questions pretty quickly. For your four wins:

1. Middle East, June 2016: 20 watches (you even hosted that challenge)
2. Russian, December 2014: 15 watches
3. War, September 2014: 27 watches
4. Russian, December 2012: 33 watches

15 watches was a win in 2014? Look at us now.
(The 2 Russians surprised me; I thought that one might have been silent.)

I'd looked at this whole thing briefly before, but I didn't realise you'd actually gone back through all of the old stuff as well. Wow. Pretty awesome man.

The Challenge-Specific leaderboard links in the OP are dead btw.

Thanks! It was kinda fun going back through the old challenge threads and seeing how the challenges have changed over time.

And thanks for the reminder - it was a side effect of the forum transition, and I haven't updated those links yet. I'll move that up the priority list.

Goddamn it. I've actually been actively avoiding looking at this challenge leaderboard stuff because I knew if I looked at it too in depth I'd get sucked in. I just looked at the awards thread as well and now I'm planning out what challenges I want to participate in and what awards I want :circle:

OP Updated. Apologies for missing the update after Nov. Some interesting changes near the top...

Also, for 2019, I'm going to track rank changes so you can more easily see changes from month to month.

Methods
Pretty simple methodology - I went to the Challenges Index (thanks for keeping that up-to-date, btw) and followed links to all the official challenges. I copied the final results (usually in the first post, though there were a couple of exceptions) into Excel. I did a little data cleanup (using consistent usernames and getting the results to appear as numbers), then assigned ranks and computed scoring (details below). From there, it was just some minor Excel magic, and boom - results.

Scoring
I used a version of NASCAR scoring. Points are based on the number of participants in a challenge and the final rank. So, if there were 20 participants in a challenge, the 1st place person would get 20 points, 2nd place gets 19 points, 3rd place gets 18 points, and so on. For ties, I assigned the average of the points that would have been earned for all those ranks. So, continuing with this example, if two people tied for 4th place (out of 20), each of them would receive (17+16)/2 = 16.5 points. The person in 6th would receive 15 points, and so on. Finally, to be included, you had to have watched at least one film for the official challenge.

From spot #46 to #5 in a year's time - woohoo. I overachieved my goal of hitting the Top 20. And my Average Rank improved from 7.45 to 5.0. Without doing all the challenges in 2019 I know I can't maintain this high of a spot overall but it's nice to be Top Five even if it's just temporary. :banana:
