Looking at the weekly user reputation leagues, I see that users are ranked based on how much reputation they have gained during that week. However, I see that there are no ties in the rankings; each place is assigned to one user only. So how are these ties in weekly reputation broken?
Looking at the first page of results from Sports last week, I can see that the answer is not:
- Total reputation for the user
- last week's rank
- change in place from last week
- user number
What is the tie breaker?
