I was active mainly in Stack Overflow but recently joined the beta Arabic.SE.

In Arabic.SE I am holding the 1st rank monthly, however it shows in my profile that I am in the top 8% this month:

In the other hand, on SO, it shows I am in 2% this month:

How is that possible? Shouldn't it be a better percentage where my rank is higher?

For Stack Overflow this is the calculation:

  • Your rank: 3,118
  • Users with reputation activity: 158,471

3,118 / 158,471 = 1,96%

And Arabic Language:

  • Your rank: 1
  • Users with reputation activity: 13

1 / 13 = 7,69%

The point in this is: there are much less active users on Arabic than on SO, so your top % will be lower on Arabic, even when you are first.

  • You are right. I saw only 13 users in the list. So 1/13 = 0.076% = 8%. Thanks. – BigOther Jul 28 '15 at 11:22
  • when users are less then 100 users, 1st rank user percentage will be more than 1%. – BigOther Jul 28 '15 at 11:24
  • That would be it then indeed. Added the figures to the post. – Patrick Hofman Jul 28 '15 at 11:24
