When will traviswfisher be unseated on the Metaculus leaderboard?


The Metaculus leaderboard shows the top players by cumulative points earned for resolved questions. As of August 7th 2020, the top user is traviswfisher with 23184 total points.

This question asks, what will be the earliest date after August 7th 2020 in which traviswfisher is no longer the top player?

In the case the Metaculus leaderboard is overhauled, this question resolves ambiguously.

The question resolves as "> Aug 7, 2030" if traviswfisher are not unseated by then.
