It's the creators ever get to see this forum please realize that... This guy, is making accounts to flood the leaderboard making it us not able to reach a new rank. It may just being a couple but if you consider to use common sense, a different person right behind one of these accounts would be greater than that if the person only have one account. Most of these experts should be in 2nd - 50th.. These accounts are not going to be used to just show that he has a bigger WPM than us and that he used up time of his life to make accounts to flood the leaderboard to not let us reach a goal. I don't know if he wanted this to happen but it sure feels like that he did.

Gel but . He has at least 20 accounts or more.

Never thought of this before, but you do make a very good point about him just taking up spots that other people should be getting as the leaderboard is meant for 1 individual per spot.

Does this really matter though? Who cares if you're on the leaderboard or not....

I don't think it's worth wasting your time worrying about whether your name appears on a list or not...

It depends from person to person, but I would imagine competitive people (like myself) care. I personally think it's nice to see how I am doing in relation to the rest of the community.

I agree with that completely. I think that yes, to some people it might not matter but to a lot of people on here they're trying really hard to get their place on the leaderboard. The greatest motivation, according to me, is to look at your effort and what you've learned and see it on the leaderboard. To even just have a little bit of the spotlight is important. This user is kind of taking that feeling away from us... so yes, I agree with you.
Also, I agree with how it's nice to see how you're doing in relation to the rest of the users- and have that be accurate. The user's many accounts is taking away from the accuracy of the leaderboard on the site.
Wow I just wrote a novel didn't I... also it's pretty weird to use actual correct grammar 0_o

Generally speaking I agree with your thoughts Wessin, however the idea of a scoreboard shouldn't be disregarded. It's a fantastic way to incite competition within a community, and historically there has been a positive relationship between competition & improvement. The inverse, in this case, could be quite deterring for some.

you make a valid point @alaindelon, however, I believe people should be competing against themselves, not others. As long as you typing speed and accuracy keep improving, you're doing well, regardless of how you rank

Might be a bot creating all those accounts.

@180wpmthissumme I'm very real I can assure you. How's Spain?

I wonder how their [profile] name sorting algorithm works. Check out first 12 places. Following sequence repeats 6 times:
gelbut\d{3}
a_______\d{3}_gel

BTW I expect only the very best from any professional s/w dev team, esp. Hungarians, Swiss, French and other Europeans. This website was built by Hungarians. How do I know?! Check phone # on their privacy policy page: https://www.keyhe... ---> +36 705 230 567

But the first testing messages in the profile of marc3 are in French, so I suppose there are French people involved.
