My issue is, looking at the reviewing stats 4 hours before they are reset, everyone on the top reviewers list is on the maximum 20 reviews.

enter image description here

So why is it that I'm not on the list? I was on the list earlier today/yesterday once I'd finished my 20, and it appears I have been pushed off the list. Why does the list not extend if everyone is equal? And how is it ranked? As far as I can tell, it's not by latest done, as dreamcrash:

Finished his 20 after me.

I had a look around for posts on the topic, and came up with this, however, there doesn't appear to be an answer.

Edit: to make clear, however similar the question may seem to the questions this was marked duplicate of, neither of those questions have answers, which is exactly why I brought this question to light again.

...why does it matter? [status-bydesign]? – Doorknob Mar 4 '13 at 19:42
@doorknob, I just can't see any logic in the ordering, and I would very much like to know whether, for example, if it is effected by review quality or some such. – Bernie Mar 4 '13 at 19:46
I think its ordered by reputation if your review counts are equal. – Raghav Sood Mar 4 '13 at 19:56
@raghavSood, nope, I don't think that's the case, it's seemingly random. – Bernie Mar 4 '13 at 20:41
If you think the question doesn't have any answer (or sufficient answer) then asking the same question is not the way to bring that question in light. Instead start a bounty on that question. – hims056 Mar 5 '13 at 4:08
@hims056, I don't particularly want to lose a whole bunch of privileges, so I never considered starting a bounty. Besides, when I posted this question, I didn't actually have enough rep to post a bounty. Besides, the duplicate notification specifies to edit the question or ask a new one, not start a bounty. – Bernie Mar 5 '13 at 4:48
