Does anyone know how SO user reputation leagues work for people who have the same recent score? I was wondering because I checked the league and I saw
We all have the same month reputation. However, I'm ranked #878 while
MadProgrammer is ranked #876! Obviously this is a GIANT bug that must be corrected at once.
But actually, how is this decided? It's bugging me that I can't find any pattern.
- By total rep it goes: 3rd-1st-2nd
- By rank change: 1st-3rd-2nd (maybe)
- By membership time: 2nd-1st-3rd
- Alphabetically: 3rd-1st-2nd
- By badges: 3rd-1st-2nd
- By coolness of pic: 3rd-2nd-1st
So the only thing I can think of is that someone wrote an extremely sophisticated algorithm to rank the coolness of pictures and then ranks them in reverse order. If this is true, can I please have it?
-EDIT- Went back today and it looks like Aaron is probably right
