Yea, basically...

Since most people seem to put their dan ranking in their profile, have some sort of graph that shows how many users there are in each DAN level. It could be a simple tally like the rival data option in the recent IIDX mixes.

I'm wondering how many people who use this system are 10-dan or kaiden, and how it trickles down from there.

I posted in your other topic but I'll do so again here tongue.gif Keep in mind forum users don't necessarily "play" iidx (some rarely play or have stopped, while others may play 2-5 hours a day), and that forum users are only a small part of users of the site. If you got Xythar to check data on how many people have ranked themselves as __-Dans I'm sure you'd get a better idea of what it's like. I'll list what I know here:

Schala/Marlie Tang is a Kaiden
VgameT is a Kaiden
Toph is a Kaiden
loluralimey is a Kaiden (pretty sure tongue.gif)
Velius/Buffalo is a Kaiden (again p. sure)
I am a 10-Dan
Xythar is a 10-Dan (I think he said that recently he passed one)

10-dan is a very wide category. I first became a 10-dan in 7th Style when the dan system started, and it took me a month to pass 8th's 10-Dan. I have never passed a Kaiden, but I've started coming closer to it.

It seems like there has to be a lot of 10-dans, if I can do it Beating_a_Dead_Horse.gif

Though the only "hard" one I've gotten yet is DJT's since I still can't do AA and Golden Cross nonran and Empress is completely lol

I passed 10dan on 10th style, which I'm not sure really counts anymore. I'd consider myself 9dan as I can actually pass that one consistently on each style (other than DJT) whereas recent 10dans completely destroy me.

To answer your question regarding the database, we have:

172 users with no rank set
33 people in the kyus (not worth listing individually, other than to note that we have no 6kyus at all for some reason)
6 1dans
5 2dans
13 3dans
13 4dans
19 5dans
30 6dans
29 7dans
44 8dans
60 9dans
63 10dans
32 kaidens

So yeah I'd say the hypothesis seems to be correct for this site at least, but there'll be some skew in those results since a lot of people aren't going to bother entering in their dan rank until they get better. And like I said, when you actually look at the people who play there are definitely more newbies than experts.

Wasn't sure. Only put names I knew for sure or was guessing based on high FC count or notables like rage random hc.

if VgameT/linus/Krazy/etc. are kaidens then...well Jadin/limey/chkn all comprise the ~ELITE FOUR~ of this community so listing them should be a given (there is also a noticeable gap between top 4 and even 5th best)

players like ryry and y13 are where you gotta wonder about because they have great timing on easy stuff but to my knowledge don't even play 12s

btw Jadin FC'd nageki [a]'s 2nd half

It depends because I can easily clear 8th style 10 dan but in recent styles 9 dan and to a lesser extent 8 dan are getting just as difficult.

I think I have myself marked as 8 dan now.

Ah, I do have myself marked as 8th Dan.

I had only passed 8th on 9th Style and RED (after throwing myself endlessly at gigadelic) so I considered myself 7th Dan for quite a while. Now, after passing 8th Dan on EMPRESS on my second try, I think I can say I'm 8th Dan.

I'm barely Kaiden...

Also some people (robby) have lower dan ranks than they actually are.

There is a guy on nico who can like HC AA every black another on empress disc minus himiko, has a high A HC on kamaitachi black, and can't pass kaiden. Just because someone is good doesn't mean they've passed (or even bothered to try) kaiden, so I didn't know for sure. I said that, I didn't want to go and make a mistake but whatever, I guess it doesn't matter. Besides, how am I supposed to know Jadin FC'd nageki's last half? did he make a video of it? I don't remember so uhh, sorry I made a mistake, w/e.

I think its more a matter of "hasn't bothered" rather than "can't". If he could HC kamaitachi [b] he could most definitely at least pass Gold Kaiden and DJT Kaiden.

That elite four only has three

Shouldn't the kaiden course in empress be the one that matters since it is the official?

A beautiful feature would be a dan filter for the rankings. Seeing where I am against people that should on a similar level is more helpful than seeing how horrible I am compared to 8th+ dan.
