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?

  • 1
    It's very possibly "arbitrary". – Servy Feb 10 '14 at 18:52
