This add-on ranks all of its users by the number of cards reviewed today, time spend studying today, current streak, reviews in the past 31 days, and retention. You can also invite friends, join a group and/or country leaderboard and compete in leagues. Start the add-on by clicking on "Leaderboard" in the toolbar and then again on "Leaderboard" (or just press shift+L). Go to Leaderboard>Config to create an account, login, or delete an account. In the friend tab, you can add friends by entering their username and clicking on "Add". You can also join and request groups in the group tab and choose your country in the settings tab. Make sure that the start of the new day is the same as in Ankis preferences. You can also check the leaderboard on this website (past 24 hours). Change Log (click here for the complete version): v2.1.0: - fixed reset Password error message - fixed homescreen group bug - added PyQt6 support - added option to change username - added privacy policy Known issues: - compatibility with LifeDrain add-on - compatibility with Progressbar add-on - some mac users might have to go to Tools>Add-ons>Leaderboard>Config to open the config, instead of Leaderboard>Config - auto-scrolling might not work The code for this add-on is available on GitHub.

Love this addon
on 1657298831
Great addon. I hope there'd be a color scheme for dark mode.
on 1655738096
The addon is not optimized for Anki's built in nightmode
(while in nightmode the leaderboard is unreadable because of font color)
on 1654251502
always needed that.

Doesn't seem like the change username option is working?

Used this during school and loved it. Now I'm studying for boards and added it again. Just created an open group for pharmacy students/etc. called "Pharmily".
on 1645273975
the leaderboard feature is great but the reviews in past 31 days column isn't working for anki 2.1.49.
the numbers of past reviews are decreasing back to 800 at the start or everyday even though i use anki daily??
on 1644670463
I like this feature but I forgot the username and password, please help.
on 1643224751
What does "XP" mean?
What is the criterion of the "past 24 hours"?
on 1643126816
don't want to lose my streak now
on 1642864095
One of the greatest add-ons. I`m rather competitive so the leaderboard is really motivating.
on 1641135741
Great idea, but I simply don't want to login to join the leaderboard (笑顔). Your effort is still appreciated! Best of luck!
on 1638194160
note: causes slight delay when syncing and opening the app
aside from that, this add-on is wonderfully motivating! Fantastic idea imo
on 1636605734
excelent job s h

Esto me motiva a estudiar más, para llegar al podio mundial.
on 1634566985
Muito legal isso. Estimula o estudo e mostra qual é a sua posição no mundo. Obrigado.
on 1632470305
What an awesome incentive. Question, how are the leagues decided? I'm in Gamma league currently. I tried looking at the code on Github and didn't quite understand it.
on 1632138062
Love the addon, but I really think Time should inversely affect XP. Ideally, you should be striving to do the greatest # of cards, with the highest retention, in the shortest amount of time.

This would be my revised formula:
XP = DS% x ((2 x reviews x retention) / (time/card))

This also rewards using Anki correctly. Each Anki card should test a small concept, and thus should not take a considerable amount of time.

The average time /card is a great metric because it takes into account the fact that you will have a few cards that take a larger amount of time, but on average you are able to study a card in a reasonable amount of time.

The other route would be to remove time entirely, which I still think is better than making XP directly correlated to time.

Also, idk if this would help, but you should try running the leaderboard sync in a separate thread so that it doesn't lag out the app when your internet isn't great.

I find this Addon the king of All ADDonS in Anki
But I am forced to delete this because this Addon cause a delay of 3 seconds or 5 seconds every time I open ANKI
please fix this bug.
on 1631129038
Really cool to see my friends counts
on 1630907340
I love it. Thank you.
on 1630697185
Great Add on
on 1629656998
A great addition to Anki - exactly what I was looking for! Makes it motivating to compete with friends and groups and gives a sense of achievement to keep going.

Suggestion: allow the leaderboard to be filtered by XP to allow for different people with different numbers of due cards to have a fair comparison
on 1629656989
This add-on is awesome. It is already helping productivity in my friend group. I wish there was a way to rank on the main screen based on XP value used for leagues.
on 1629246583
Much fun.
on 1627914682
Great but I have no clue why morons cheat on this. Its not like you win any prices spamming it..

Like Milan has 3200 reviews per 109 minute. That means avarage for question is 2 seconds ...

My downvote is because it gives xp based for reviews instead time. Time should have 1.5x or 2x factor.
Comment from author
Thanks for your feedback. If you think that someone is cheating, just double-click on them and report them. The xp formula is: days studied percentage x ((6 x time) + (2 x reviews x retention))
on 1627842686
I like it! However, after making an account I can't access the configuration settingsss anymore. Does anyone know how to do this?
Comment from author
This seems to be an issue on mac. You could try going to Tools>Add-ons>Select Leaderboard and then config, that usually works.
on 1626704594
Great source of motivation!
on 1625881361
Very good
on 1625742984
Great! 😋

This is just one more level of motivation to keep my streak and do all my reviews. After all, who would enjoy falling out of an Anki Leaderboard league, am I right?
on 1625364711
on 1622896547
I have been motivated since I downloaded this add-on, many thanks

woah! my motivation to finish my reviews each day skyrocketed,
on 1619373649
Cool man. Competing with you guys very motivational. Thanks a lot.
on 1618926106
Great Addon. My recommendation would be to add a column for "# of cards matured"
on 1617745712
can any one tell me there group please since i dont have one.it you want to make a new one with me contact me at (ahmed___tarig )in instagram to make a new group

Very useful for motivation (a little laggy if you turn on main window leaderboards)
on 1609099903
Very cool stuff!
on 1608972385
İmpressive add-on.But i want to ask a question.Are you doing anything about cheaters?Top of the beta league there is a person who did 4719 reviews in 96.9 minutes atm.
Comment from author
No, I can't really control that at the moment. If you double click on the username, you can hide the user though. I might add a report user function in the future.
on 1608291995
I downloaded this addon when there were only a dozen or so other people being displayed, it was good but buggy in the beginning, since then its functionality has been very reliably improved by the creator. It's one of the best anki addons out there!

edit: thanks for the answer!
Comment from author before post was edited
Go to Leaderboard>Config>Friends, enter the name of the friend and click "add".
on 1606617807
Highly motivational, great idea.
on 1604690733
Amazing addon! One bad thing about it is that it conflicts with Remote Decks addon (https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/911568091). Anki just freezes and won't let me sync the deck.
on 1604365663
LOVE this addon. would say this is essential for anyone needing a motivational boost, especially with the new leagues update. keep up the good work!
on 1603994405
Nice idea! <3
on 1603638006
Awesome. VERY nice idea. Use it daily and it motivates me so much. Wish more would use it!
on 1603610508
Fantastic. I just saw the leagues update and I'm really excited to have a proper competitive comparison.
on 1603041793
Hi ! I am a big fan of this add-on. I like seeing what other people do. I am also thrilled by the new group functionality. Too bad there is no way to make add-ons for mobile ! I still have to convince my friends to use the desktop version of Anki...
on 1602960900
Amazing add-on, perfect for anyone that likes a little competition. I will be recommending this to my friends and other students.
on 1602444878
Fun stuff, getting to compete with friends at other schools as we hammer our way through the Anking deck makes the process slightly less miserable.
on 1602429918
If I understand this correctly (waiting for group approval), then this is the answer to my prayers!
I'm an (ESL) English teacher in Israel, trying to use Anki in class settings. A major limitation of Anki in a school environment is the inability to see activity of all students with one click. If this solves the problem, then many thanks.
on 1601825932
on 1600853001
Such a good addon to motivate me, I can also compete with my friends.
on 1600782845
Really cool!
on 1600094593
Good addon, great motivater
on 1600044209
This a great add-on. Is there a way to embed the friend's leaderboard on the home screen of Anki when it's launched, without having to press anything to view it?
on 1599682756
doesnt work with 2.1.33
Comment from author
That's not super helpful. What doesn't work? Do you get an error message? Does Anki crash? Some more info would be great, especially because everything works on my end and I'm also using Anki 2.1.33 (Windows).
on 1598192539
this is awesome. a great motivational tool between friends!

It awesome! but potato i h8 u and your 100 retention rate :(
on 1595269006
Really motivates me, Although I'm always unsatisfied with the unfair competition caused by anki flaws where you can't verify other progress as they could simply lie. People who has 100% retention are either lying or a inhuman god robot!! They should be banned >:(
on 1595081318
Gives you a motivation boost!

This helps me stay motivated and find people using Anki like I do.

Great add-on, and the creator is super helpful! 10/10 would recommend. Thank you so much for your help!!!

That's probably the same error as this one: https://github.com/ThoreBor/Anki_Leaderboard/issues/70
Make sure that your username is in your friends list.
on 1588521717
on 1588433637
Cool idea! The days of 1000+ Anki reviews are behind me, but my 3000+ day streak putting me at #1 made it all worth it haha ;)
on 1588395275
I really love the idea behind this addon, but for me there's 2 issues:

1. Sometimes I cannot see my friends on the leaderboard and then they randomly pop back up.
2. I have my settings set to "bury related reviews" and when i do my cards, the number that it shows on my anki homescreen does not match the number on the leaderboard. The leaderboard overestimates it a lot.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the addon and removed and re-added my friends, but the problem still persists. Please let me know what I can do to solve this problem. I am using Anki 2.1.22

Edit: Yes I have both set to the same time

Edit: Problem solved. Thanks for the help and continuous updates!
Comment from author before post was edited
Like all other users, friends only appear on the leaderboard if they used the add-on on the same day as you. Bury related reviews shouldn't have any effect on the stats. Does the start of the new day in the leaderboard config match what is specified in Ankis preferences?

Edit: If anyone else has this problem, please report it here: https://github.com/ThoreBor/Anki_Leaderboard/issues/65

Awesome add on! Motivates me to anki away. Updates are frequent - maker’s really on top of their game.
on 1586716171
Great idea! Adds a fun element to spacebar smashing.
on 1586619908
Freaking love the addon!!! It's motivating me so much! :)

Update: Bug is fixed, that was way faster than I expected. Thanks so much, you rock!!! :O

Incredible !
on 1586338548
on 1586296684
Awesome add-on!!

I'm not feeling this new update v1.4. I liked the graph of v1.3, it was much more clean and minimal. Also, as others have mentioned, some instructions on how to set up friends, country, subject, etc would be nice.
on 1586286413
Good add on, very fun concept!

Things to improve on:
Add support for anki 2.1.23
Add a cards/minute leaderboard
on 1586255011
Anki crashes every time I try to make a username. Unusable.
on 1586017208
Great app! But unable to effectively add people onto the leaderboard after user account is created. Was able to successfully add one person by manually inputting into the config file, but the others that were added at the beginning are not showing up.
on 1585980150
awesome one of the best add on!
on 1585961624
Love ittt
on 1585960869
I thought I was the greatest, now I have doubts about my self worth. Wow, some of you people are incredible. However, I still love this add-on.
on 1585933263
might be dumb, but how do you add friends, tried to type in their username in the config and I got an error
on 1585929482
Great way for me to see how I am doing relative to others
on 1585871495
It was working well, left before 12am, came after 12am, and everything is 0 for everyone and way less people are in the leaderboard, what is going on? I will still give it a thumbs up but please look into it.
on 1585847690
Awesome idea. As if I needed an excuse to spend more time on these cards.
on 1585838172
Great add-on. Instructions would be helpful, for things like adding friends and other common Q's.
on 1585812969
sweet, see you on the leaderboard/battlefield -DoctorPaco
on 1585808727
This is so amazing. Thanks for your hard work (& I can't wait to see friends + other features). I'd love to see custom leaderboards that people could create/join!
on 1585787893
Lovely, was waiting for this.

Studying always flourishes with some competition
on 1585787526
Amazing concept. Hope this can become more popular.
on 1585775877
Awesome idea! Can't wait for the updates (teams would be huge! Maybe an option to join a team by region since not everyone has a group established?)
on 1585765776
great idea! good motivation haha
