Title speaks for itself. An obvious bug.

what is this madness

Jokes aside, there's a lot of other users showing up in the list twice at the moment.

P.S. If anyone was wondering, this appears to be the case for every site, not just SO. I considered taking a screenshot of the rankings for Meta instead, but Jon Skeet seemed more important than the guy in the top slot there.

    And here I was thinking I'd read this post and reach for the close link. Well played. – Tim Stone Jul 23 '11 at 0:48

    My title is both completely correct and clearly describes the incorrect results. I can't begin imagine how one might think otherwise. – McCannot Jul 23 '11 at 0:55

    N.B. -- putting the original (and clearly superior) title back, now that the issue is fixed and we don't need to worry about people overlooking my (perfectly sensible) title in their rush to post dupes (with clearly inferior titles). – McCannot Jul 23 '11 at 5:25

    Should we award Jon Skeet the badge for being ranked higher than Jon Skeet? – Lee Louviere Oct 5 '12 at 19:23

    Jon Skeet is the only person who has ranked higher than Jon Skeet in the SO all-time rep league #HenceProved – Mukul Goel Oct 31 '12 at 11:56

Nice try, Jon. This should be fixed.

This should be added to Jon Skeet's facts :p

  • Jon Skeet was once second in rank, behind Jon Skeet

It will be probably fixed the next time the relevant cron job runs.

    Yes, Jon Skeet now has the unique distinction of being the only person ranked higher on SO than Jon Skeet. – McCannot Jul 23 '11 at 1:14

    Personally i think we should just "clock" his rep and badge count now, rep to 999,999 and badge counts to 99,999 (the only real question is should the badge count be 6 figures or 5?). – slugster Jul 23 '11 at 1:46
  • Jon Skeet has coded in SO that shows him in both 1st and 2nd place :) – Biranchi Apr 12 '16 at 5:17

    @slugster It looks like 999,999 would have been be unfair :) it's over 1 million now – Berriel Jan 21 '18 at 11:55
