I think a consistent rating needs to be fair for solvers at the top and in the middle. The top is suited ok with the system as is with absolute top score contributing a lot more than rank score, rewarding a very good performance. The middle is suited ok by using the median score as the measure of 500, instead of actual score/top score which is where the median might drop to 300 or 400 on an exceptional test day. And the rank score further brings back the front-runner a bit and also separates ties by score (but not time) in the middle.

I think drastic changes from the current formula will result in a worse ranking system either for the top, or for the middle, based on the test data we have for the last 15 months. At most, I might like to see modeled what would happen if a third inflection point was built into the system, perhaps at the 1st standard deviation above and below the median, equaling another set of fixed score points. My guess is that the middle and top are stable but players at 70-85% in rank are more affected by test to test variation outside of their own performance.
Very nicely put.

Just one question: when you say 70-85% in rank, do you mean those ranked 71st-85th (out of 100) or those ranked 15th-30th? And, I would also like to know the degree (slightly/moderately/heavily) to which they are affected, so that we can think of further improvements at some point of time.

By 70-85% in rank I meant those with a rank score around 700 to 850. So 15th to 30th place in your out of 100 example.

Updated LMI Sudoku Ratings after A or B (October 2011 LMI sudoku test) are now available.

motris inched closer to the 1000 mark, gaining one point to reach 993. deu and Nikola exchanged places and are within a point of each other now. jaku111 and uvo, both made major gains to enter the Top 10. Four of the top 10 have palindromic ratings (which read the same whether read from left or right).

TiiT (palindrome again) who finished 2nd in A or B, gained 36 rating points to move to #15. Gotroch has a rating of 888 (which is a flush in poker). Hunsudoku, tarotaro, SCORPPROCS (another palindrome), tilansia and spelvin all gained over 100 points and should be rapidly moving towards the top in the coming months.

Among players from India, Rohan moved to within 2 points of 900 and is ranked 8th now. Prasanna gained 27 points.

We'll spend some time checking it manually before making this as default ratings.

The most significant change at the top is that MellowMelon moves to #2 position ahead of deu. Also, xevs gained 19 points to have ratings of 919.

And the author is punished for his too hard grids by losing 3 ranks and being kicked out of the top 20

zachpuzzle: If you're checking results multiple times while a test is running (i.e. after you've played), those are the players that have played since the last time you checked. I don't think that orange ever shows up after a test is over.

MellowMelon is right. It was not explained anywhere in the forum, and was left as 'another puzzle' for players to figure out.
The colors don't appear after the test is over.
