  1. Is there any way to view top rated users (with inactive users included)? (The "Rating (All)" tab would logically be this, but the list is just the same as "Rating". Further, it seems you need to login to even see the "Rating (All)" tab. What even is it?)
  2. Is there a list of users sorted by their max. rating?
  3. Is there some convenient way to show only European contestants or do any filtering other than by country, city or organisation?

I've tried to google for these but haven't found anything. If any of these lists are hidden somewhere on the site, or any external sites have these lists, please inform me.

You can use Codeforces API to download whole list as JSON objects. After that all this stuffs should be easy with any programming language. I was doing some statistic for my university project at the same manner.

If you didn't know, codeforces rating mean is $$$1419$$$ and max rating mean is $$$1515$$$ :D

In the "Rating (All)" tab, the inactive users are listed after all of the active users. You could copy the inactive and active lists and combine them manually.

That's a bug, it used to show what you want here.

Thank you for suggesting the codeforces API! With it I was able to find what I wanted. Here's some results:

Users by max. rating
Users from Europe (excluding Russia) by max. rating
Code

      So now we know who is causing the rating inflation.

      This is why you shouldn't do things at 2AM ;_;

      I didn't realise this would happen. Sorry for the spam.

    yeah-yeah, notifications, but I'm actually glad, because that's good place to rant.

    62 "legendary" grandmasters (at some point) is too much don't you guys think? More than 5 at any point is a lot.

      Do you think the rating rank should be considered by some sort of percentage?

      Like, top $$$x\%$$$ would be legendary grandmaster, top $$$y\%$$$ would be international grandmaster, etc?

        I wouldn't mind it being static to say 10 people. Just because an Olympic sport is more popular doesn't mean they get more than 3 medals. (though I dont think it's a big issue the way its now)

        So that if one wants to move to a higher rank, all they need to do is to bring sufficient number of new contestants to Codeforces? ;)

      It's ok because we have top-10 in main.

      The name might be somewhat strange, but so is "expert" for the initial rating. Don't see anything wring in having additional color every few hundred points. It might make sense to add one more color but one may say that top-10 on the right is enough

      I'd say it's obviously too much, a better number would be 6,2.

      So is the number of reds — there are 182 active IGMs and 412 active GMs, compared to 50 and 183 when the last revolution happened.

      I would be up for raising the GM floor to 2600, IGM to 2800, LGM to 3400 and adding two new titles to 3000 and 3200.

        Not so sure about that. Here is a table I made a couple months ago.

        Somehow the only bracket that has gotten seriously bigger is LGM. Other changes can kind of be attributed to Codeforces itself growing.

    This reminds me of the target thread from TC, which had been kept updated after every round for 8 years.
