(I'm aware that this post sounds like a way of drawing attention to doing well recently. It's really not.)

If you look at the July 24th - 30th SO league I was at #1 (just about... by 6 rep!) That correctly shows the change from the previous week as being +1 for me and -1 for Darin.

But if you look at the July 31st - August 6th league I'm still at #1, but it's still showing a change of +1 for me. How can I be +1 after I was already #1 the previous week?

Maybe you're just that good that you took first place from yourself! – Marc Gravell Aug 7 '11 at 8:06
@MarcGravell True story! – Tim Stone Aug 7 '11 at 8:11
I thought you don't visit SO during weekends! – user162697 Aug 7 '11 at 13:44
@Siva: Me? Who said that? – Jon Skeet Aug 7 '11 at 15:37
Well, you gave the schedule only for weekdays…. Nothing for weekend. So, I thought you are sparing us mere mortals to gain points during weekends. :-) – user162697 Aug 7 '11 at 15:40
@Siva: Duly edited to include my weekend... – Jon Skeet Aug 7 '11 at 15:43

This doesn't appear to be the case any more – you're #2 in the July 24th - 30th league, not #1 – so it seems that our league caches were out of sync when you viewed them (individual leagues are cached independently).

We've just deployed a fix whereby the window of time during which we serve "stale" league data has been drastically reduced, so hopefully you won't notice such a discrepancy in the future.

Yeah, that Darin guy is a maniac. – Robert Harvey Aug 9 '11 at 22:22
Hmm... I'd been ahead of Darin in that league (just by 4 points) for a while. Something odd's happened, but I can't say what... (I can't remember whether I had 2672 or whether Darin had 2628 before.) – Jon Skeet Aug 9 '11 at 22:32
