How can I view the “hall of fame” page?

Would it be good to have a ranking system for say the top 1000/5000 users on SO?

First off I understand that something like this opens the floor up to a whole host of people sad enough to just try and get on the board.

But I feel that it would actually be helpful, because I often find myself looking at popular and high rep users because I know I can learn a lot from their content.

I also understand the philosophy of judging the answer not the answerer but, could it hurt?

What do you think?

Great idea!

In fact, I've used a time machine to implement this in the past. Go find it at http://stackexchange.com/leagues

Why the time machine, you ask? Because I really wanted to compare myself over time and see if I've ever made it to first place. :-P

i would upvote that for hilarity if i could! – dizzytri99er Nov 6 '12 at 11:21
Martijn, I told you not to use the time machine on a day-to-day basis. It creates anomalies in the time vortex. Now look what you've done. – Pëkka Nov 6 '12 at 11:39
@Pekka: Bugger, I was being so careful too! There are more: Missing from Month Reputation List Reputation league says I've been a member for 1 year, 12 months I'm ranked twice in the leagues! etc. Oops! – Martijn Pieters Nov 6 '12 at 11:42
Yeah. Remember what the doc said: Emergencies only, man. – Pëkka Nov 6 '12 at 11:45
