15 years ago this site had under a million registered accounts and the list was top 50. Now there are what, at least 8 million? registered accounts and it's still top 50.

The list almost never changes and includes nobody who joined after 2000. I've pretty much accepted that I'll never be on it, but I've always been curious where I stand.

It's presumably just a basic "select top X" SQL query, and expanding the list to 100 or 200 people should barely impact the server load.

It's probably been unchanged for no other reason than 50 being a nice round number and any change would be pretty arbitrary in nature. So why bother fixing what ain't broke?

Not that I'm against changing it to have more, or am I even claiming that is the admins' rationale.

Well, there are the top 100 games and so on.
I do think 100 would be a better number.

Not specifically related, but if GameFAQs can tell me that the first Final Fantasy game is the 11,109th hardest game on the site, I don't see how this could possibly be hard to implement.

Pretty much all of the other "Top ___" lists are limited to 50 as well. There's no need to change this.
