In this post I'll show you how to get your name on the VimGolf leaderboard, and scale it as fast as possible. The leaderboard algorithm has its issues, but for beginning players, it can be a lot of fun. When I started playing, I'd check the leaderboard after every challenge, to see if I'd gained a few spots. It works very well for that purpose, motivating you to do one more challenge, and picking the most popular challenges for the most points. I used to pick challenges by which had the most entries, but I'll show you something a little more sophisticated.
