Is there a way to see all WikiTree members ranked by total contributions? Or at least the top 1000 contributors ranked by contributions perhaps?

Just curious. :)

People are already doing silly things just to get contribution points, this will only encourage them! I've seen people editing their bio tons of times a day and adding themselves as manager of profiles then instantly removing themselves, just to get that point!
I understand your concern, but I don't think many WikiTree genealogists would stoop that low. Besides, it would still be cool to have that list of total contributions, don't you think?
I’m save crazy. I’ve lost data so many times over the years, that I regularly save stuff, even if it’s only a little bit of work. Not just WikiTree, but anything I’m working on. A 10,000 word report? I’m not losing a thing. Same with working in a profile. Add a census record, save. Add the source, save. I’m not worried about the number of contributions, but about not losing anything and having to figure out where I need to start up again.

That would be an interesting list.
Anon: There are a thousand ways to legitimately contribute each month without having to resort to such antics.  If you see this again, suggest they become a data doctor or volunteer to one of the projects to help clear the task lists.

Edit to add: when you see people add themselves as manager and then remove themselves as manager, check if that person is a leader.  This is how a leader modifies a profile, say to add a project as co-profile manager.  They adopt the profile, make changes, and then remove themselves as PM.
Does that really matter, anon?  If that's how some folk get their jollies, then let them.  There are several who just click wildly to increase their g2g score, but that's encouraged. It would be useful for some folk to know whether the amount they are doing on WikiTree is making a difference overall.
In the past, I have lost a lot of information on profiles, and had to redo them so yes I save after every source and information to go with that source because I don't want to have to redo the whole profile, not because I want to get a high contributions score xxx
@Karen: ditto here. I have an almost unreadable fear of losing data, having had this happen often. Add to that a wonky computer!

Hello Zachary.

It seems that's not yet ready, but added to the team's "To-do-list" as can be seen on previous posts:

I could have sworn that I used to be able to see that feature but it's now gone.  Please bring it back.  I want to know whether the amount I contribute to WikiTree is actually making an overall difference.
