Hmm~ Wouldn’t that mean needing the API of every single WK user?
If it’s even possible, I think it would be better for it to be an opt-in system only. As much as rankings encourage some people, they discourage just about as many. So having everyone being able to see anyone’s accuracy, and people feeling like they’re being compared to everyone else would certainly be a negative for a large number of people.
The closest thing that I’m aware of is a script where you manually add members, so you can keep track of their level-ups and have a sort of leaderboard that way. I know some people use it for friendly competition of over-taking or keeping up with each other through level-ups. ^^
Yes, that’s the one I’m using right now. And I was thinking of a larger scale version of that : just a ranking and levels but no display of accuracy results or anything. But I agree, even if they’re not displayed the script might need the API for ranking? I don’t know ^^; I’ve never written any userscript myself.
You wouldn’t need the API key of every user I think, the levels can be extracted from the user pages of every user. I think that’s also how the leaderboard script works.
I would still agree that this must be an opt in script, as comparing results can be damaging.
What I would love though is some way to get a leech chart with the community’s greatest leeches. Can that be done by using a crawler on the hall of shame pages?
