Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

There are some tags that I like to check the stats for to get the top all-time answerers. Looking at the questions they answered and their answers is often very informative, and I like to RSS their blogs as well.

But the top users page only gives the Top 20. Is there any way to get more than 20?

Thank you Juha.

I've now created 2 queries:

  1. Top Askers for a Given Tag

  2. Top Answerers for a Given Tag

You could look into Data Explorer. It allows you to execute arbitrary queries against data dumps. Data is up to 1 month old, but it may be enough for you.

Never knew about Data Explorer before. It will work. Don't know how I missed hearing about it. – lkessler Jun 14 '10 at 20:27
@lkessler: Because it's practically brand new, that's how. – mmyers Jun 14 '10 at 22:30
@mmyers: Well, I think it's great. I learned a lot just by being able to see how SO organizes its data and going through the interesting queries of others. It's a tremendous sandbox to play in. – lkessler Jun 14 '10 at 22:47
