if there is a userscript/something else to remove "standings" button while ur writing contest not to spend time checking if u are higher/lower than you friends? i didn't find anything in the google, my willpower is too low to ignore "standings" button.

      It's true. Also you can only watch your own verdicts and can't hack. So this is as simple as possible, so it's non-distracting.

It doesn't only waste your time, but it also makes you nervous (especially if a newbie friend is higher than you at the moment you checked, or your rank is much higher than usual).

Actually, I had the same problem but I didn't realize it was a problem until I stopped doing it and noticed the difference. Try participating in virtual contests once a day without checking the standings once. I tried this and it worked.

Note: Sometimes you may want to know which problem is solved more (like when you find problem C is so hard so you want to check if problem D is solved more), find out using the dashboard not the standings.
