It actually does say the requirements on the top of each competition page, but here goes.

The top 100 point-getters for each month are on the "monthly competitions" page for high-scoring. (Number of puzzles started or completed is irrelevant.)

For percentage, the top 50 of that get rearranged by best percentage solved, and ties are broken by higher number of points. Generally, the top 16 to 18 are 100% people, followed by a couple who are only missing a game or two.

For speed, that top 50 gets rearranged by average speed, minus anyone who has solved less than 75% of the puzzles they have started. There are usually about 45 people on that list by the end of the month.

Does that answer your question, fishbum?
