I recently received an email titled: "Top new Parenting - Stack Exchange users for the week of Apr 11 2011‏"

However when I click through on the link provided I can't see any information about myself.

I did some head scratching and realised it was for the previous week. Clicking through on the prev link link on the above page I appear on the league and on the right hand side as expected.

I think to be helpful the link in the email should point to the link which references myself automatically otherwise it's confusing.

Note: I only received this email 30 minutes ago, so it's not like an email that was sent last week. It was sent this week and should point to last week.

its said Apr 11, you need to click during that time or click previous week link - stackexchange.com/leagues/103/week/parenting/2011-04-10 – YOU Apr 18 '11 at 1:49
    
@YOU - The current time is UTC 1:51. I received the email at UTC 1:00. Which means I received the email 'this week' not 'last week' so a new user will always need to click the prev week, thus my suggestion to have it automatically point to the correct week. – xiaohouzi79 Apr 18 '11 at 1:52
    
sorry, you're right – YOU Apr 18 '11 at 1:55

Nice catch.

Clearly including a link to the most recent league rather than the league you actually placed in is... sub-optimal.

Going forward all such e-mails will instead use the correct historical league link.

Related bug: I received an email saying I'm on the top user list for ServerFault, but I'm not on either this week's or the previous week's list! – Robin Green Apr 18 '11 at 21:20
