Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

At the moment writing this I am sharing the same amount of reputation with somebody else in SO. We are last on user page 22 or first on page 23. I was looking for my position, and switching between the two, I sometimes only saw the other person both at the bottom of 22 and the top of 23. Doing it again later, I saw only myself. Seems the sort order or paging algorithm is buggy.

It took me an awful lot of flipping back and forth between those two pages to reproduce this, but I can at least confirm that this is true.

I would suspect that it should be: order by reputation desc, username asc, but maybe it's just doing order by reputation desc, in which case, SQL Server will give erratic results in terms of order when that condition is the same.

I'd do it rep -> length of time on SO. – Brad Gilbert Aug 3 '09 at 18:07
