In my personal Foldit history, I've seen very few "world n° 1" solo players. Here is a list of identified rank 1 players in History:

#1 soloists:

sirenbrian
pletsch
MellyLam
g_s
aap
Mark-
wudoo
Aotearoa
pauldunn
gmn
Bletchley Park
mimi (also #1 solo and evo at same time, I believe)
gmn
karstenw
markm457
Galaxie (who even ever got rank 1 evo and solo 1 at the same time)
Bletchley Park
Timo Van Der Laan
retiredmichael
Gitwut
tokens
Enzyme
LociOiling (who even ever got rank 1 evo and solo 1 at the same time)
ZeroLeak7
grogar7
mirp (who even ever got rank 1 evo and solo 1 at the same time)

#1 evolvers:

MattSaffell
g_s
Madde
setiman
LociOiling
Galaxie
Smilingone
Toshiue
Mimi
Bruno Kestemont
mirp

May I ask to the oldest players if they can add players to this list for the time before 2014 ?

Just curious.

===============

Maarten desnouck started collecting top player's daily score data from 8 apr 2014 to mid 2017. I could copy some of his data and update it for latest years.

Time series for latest top 15 soloist. Last year chart.

Time series for latest top 15 evolvers. Last year chart

(note that the ranking in the past is not correct, because old top players disappeared from the chart, for example ZeroLeak7 who was rank 1 most of early 2020).

The Forgotten

And to the forgotten, those you have remained with foldit throughout the years and have not reached rank 1 nor evo 1 but still carry on day after day. Their sometimes overlooked contributions deserve recognition as well.

Not Forgotten - the real gold

Aunt Deen contributed so much to the game. While she wasn't around long while I was learning the game, she left a legacy of black belt videos and so much positive energy about the game. Her curiosity, openness to many approaches, and collecting the best from everyone is what I love most about Foldit
JMBrownlee & Susume have both helped me start to understand the real science, Frood has endlessly tried to help a dyslexic folder work on chirality after mastering some basics and is one of the best hand folders. So many of you have been generous on Vet chat. Brow & Gary Forbis and Rav3n and Bruno have written recipes to help me do things I would never have time or the ability to do on my own. My team works on my skills ;) I appreciate all of you. The mistakes are my own.
All of you are truly golden in my opinion. I think we are strongest together

You have forgotten...

You have forgotten my teammate Mark-, who was #1 soloist for umpteen weeks back in the early 2010's.

then choose the date. You will be able to see who was #1 at any time an archive capture was made.

wrong link in your original post

Howdy, Bruno.

I don't know of links mutate over the years, but http://fold.it/portal/user/93893 does not take me to the historical data. Can you please revise the link?

done

The files are on Google sheets. I should make them available to other players in case I or my google account disappear. The sheets are available in reading here (I recommend the interested players to take a copy, as I did from the ones by Maarten).

Soloist raw data

Evolvers raw data

Groups raw data (and sharts - direct link to shart is on my Foldit home page)

Hall of fame raw data (and different draft sheets) Not used yet. I'm planning to use this database in order to calculate the rankings for old puzzles (the puzzle score beeing the delta score_t - score_t-1) in order to be able to "count the medals" and to update the famous "Madde list".

By the way going to see Madde's work, I found possibles ways to update more old results using it's day to day puzzle results, like for example here CASP11 analitics. But it's a lot of work.
