The Ranker.com "Greatest Minds of All Time" (RGM) banner, as of Oct 2020.[1]

In genius studies, RGM, aka “Ranker Greatest Minds”, refers to a list fully-titled as “The Greatest Minds of All Time”, originally started at Ranker.com, by Walter Graves (2013), with about 150 names, which has continually grown thereafter, via public additions and up and down re-rankings votes. In Hmolpedia existographies, the notation (RGM:#|1,350+) indicates a person's ranking # in the RGM listing at the time when it had 1,350+ names on the list.

Overview

2013 | 150+ names

In 2013, Walter Graves started a "Greatest Minds of All Time" at Ranker.com, with about 150 names, with the following ranking criterion:[1]

“List of the ‘greatest minds of all time, throughout history’. This list represents the most influential thinkers across various disciplines, ranked in a way that represents the power of their ideas and their impact on the world. The wisest men and women include top philosophers, physicists, famous poets, thinkers, teachers, physiologists, artists, inventors, engineers, the most irreplaceable CEOs in the world, economists and politicians and those whose talents span across many fields of study. This list takes a historic perspective, so the greatest thinkers who are included on this list come from many different eras. The greatest minds of the 21st century may be quite different from great geniuses from the distant past, but each person should be judged within the context of the time that they were living. For example, inventing a new type of telephone in 2013 would not qualify one as ‘the most brilliant mind of all time’, but in 1876 when Alexander Graham Bell first patented the telephone, it was an act of genius not seen before. List Rules: Vote up the individuals who you think had the most influential ideas throughout history.”
— Walter Graves (2013), “The Greatest Minds of All Time”

2014 | 360+ names

On Oct 2014, the list had 366 people, with 66k+ votes, made by 5k+ voters, and had 311k views; those shown with dates are existive individuals, and those shown the [J] or [P] labels seem to be joke or political agenda adds:[2]

2020 | 1350+ names

In Oct 2020, the list had 1,357-names, ranked by 63k people, voting 730k times, with 6.4m views; at this point, the list had lost its "search box" function, the ad popups had grown extensively, and to see the entire list, one had to scroll down about 40 times, each time clicking the "load more" button, which adds 25 new names to view; hence, a pdf of the list was made at this point.[3]
