Was looking through the 99th percentile and saw there are now three people on the third page of the leader board who have a 99pecentle. I remember it used to only go down about half way the second page.

Besides pointing out this fact this would be because more and more people are doing debates and thus are appearing on the leader board right?

yes the more debates you do the higher you are, izbo was in a high percentile and won like 30% of the time. I am in the 98 but only win 60% of the time

Yes, currently about 6000 members have done debates, so about 60 will be above 99%. When 7000 have done debates, there will be 70.

Of course I know how it's ranked, I've been here 9 months. Roy answered my question.

Trivia: It looks like the Leaderboard is strictly sorted by the number wins, but if you look in later pages ,where there are four wins or fewer, that order breaks down. You'll see people with three wins ahead of those with four. According to Juggle, the ordering is actually by the number of points scored. Statistics being statistical, large numbers of wins will usually make the average points in the debate close to the averages for the site, so it makes sense the ordering would be about the same. Still, it seems to me there should be occasional differences around the crossover points.

Occasionally something happens and leaderboard is not resorted for a while, then it catches up.
