Ask coding questions

We need questions... PyAssist
PYer (4035)

Hello everyone! You may have heard some chatter around repl talk about a new project, "PyAssist". The @PyAssistDevs team is working on developing a bot that will answer questions on python. (If you're interested in joining the team, please ping @Pyer01 underneath) But, to make a good list of Q's and A's, we need to understand possible things the community thinks would make a good list. I know, it's kind of ironic asking for questions in the ask board. So, any ideas to simple (or complicated) questions we should have an answer to?

CholsreaMMOS (1)

I've seen a few games that have leaderboards from other users and would like to implement that to my own game. I've looked around and haven't found any answers and was hoping you guys could help.
basically I would like a way of taking an end score from every user, compare to find the lowest (or highest) and print the top 3 (or more) when it starts, ends or access leaderboard ect.
it would be really useful for almost ALL of the games I make and would really appreciate if you can tell me how, or if they are fake
