TypeRacer Data serves as a supplemental, third-party information center for TypeRacer.
There are currently 33,279 accounts and 46,417,735 races indexed in this database, for an average of 1,395 races per account.
Please send any questions about the website to Noah, its creator and maintainer. You can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by logging on to the TypeRacer Discord server or the TypeRacer IRC channel on Freenode.
We continue to offer thanks to Sean Wrona, who hosted this website for several years, and painstakingly indexed the first ~700 texts. We also thank Michael DeRoche, who indexed the remaining texts.
How does the text bests stat work?
The text bests takes each text that the user has raced, finds their top score for each text, and averages those together. Whenever a user achieves a new personal best on a text, his or her text bests will improve.
What about difficulty rating and relative speed?
How does the marathon stat work?
The marathon is any consecutive period of 24 hours during which a user completed the most races. This period could start at any moment.
When do the Texts and Months pages get updated? When do my marathon and best last 10 get updated?
Once per week, on Monday morning at 4 a.m. Eastern Time, the entire website receives an update, including Texts, Months, marathons, and a full current import for all users. Otherwise, you may update individual profiles at any time.
Why don't some of my races show up?
Prior to 2013, a very small number of individual races did not get exported by TypeRacer, so this site can't collect them. We don't know why this happened. You can find out exactly which ones are missing using the skipped race checker, though this serves purely as an informative tool and won't help to get the races back. Some statistics remain unaffected by this, and others do get affected.
Have you added every TypeRacer account to this website?
No. Unless someone imports an account manually, we don't know about the account. TypeRacer does not provide a complete export of its database. You can help us out by importing accounts.
How do I access TypeRacer's API?
Via the three main API access points:
What time zone does TypeRacer use?
TypeRacer and this website both use the Eastern Time Zone.
