TypeRacerData.com is “a supplemental, third-party information center for TypeRacer” which is free and open to everyone for tracking stats in more detail, and building an even more engaging typing experience.  It’s particularly great for statistic enthusiasts.

Examples of what it can be used for:

  1. Track your typing speed on a month-by-month basis
  2. Find your fastest X races, see what texts they were on, and try to beat your scores on these texts (you’ll need a TypeRacer premium account if you want to save practice mode scores)
  3. Browse the shortest/longest and easiest/hardest texts on TypeRacer
  4. View other metrics, such as the variance among your scores, and the average of your fastest race on each text (a.k.a. “text bests“)
  5. Check your longest “marathons” — i.e. greatest number of races in any 24-hour period
  6. Much more!

Launching in late 2016, the year 2017 was the first full year that the site operated.

During 2017, the database grew to include over 39 million TypeRacer races and 23,000 accounts!

This may be a small fraction of the millions of registered TypeRacer users, but it is the largest third-party TypeRacer database in history (and yes, others have been developed!) and among the fastest competitive typists on the site, it’s a largely comprehensive and authoritative record.

Congrats to TypeRacerData, and a special thanks to its founder Noah (licahfoxTRData) who has poured a lot of sweat and blood into building and maintaining this resource for the TypeRacer community!

The growth charts are below and the full data are public on Google Sheets.

The number of accounts on TypeRacerData quintupled over 2017 — from fewer than 5,000 to almost 25,000.

Interesting seeing the logarithmic growth of race and accounts in early 2018!

Thanks to David, Alex, and all others who have contributed to making Typeracer my favorite site. I’m proud to have had a small role here adding texts and moderating the site.

Shout out to Noah for his work on Typeracer Database: an almost necessary supplemental website for many of us Typeracers.

Here’s to another great year of typing! 🙂

Hey Mike. Great to have you here as well! Thanks for all your contributions to the community. Agreed that Noah deserves at least a few loud shout outs. Happy typing in 2018!

Big thanks to Noah! TypeRacer wouldn’t be the same without trdata
