Seriously, I have people that only completed 4 debates with only 1 win that are ahead of me.

it doesnt update automatically it updates i think once in a while, you will get stuck below people who have less wins than you, just win more and eventually you'll be sprinting towards the top

Don't bother with it because it's a worthless indication of skill.

Well my percentiles haven't updated in weeks. I am right were I was when I had 10 wins and now I have 18. I should be way ahead.

But I agree with imabench and 16kadams. It's worthless because it dosen't take into account who you beat. You should get more points by beating a high-ranked debater than if it is forfeited in. Not to mention, you can have a record of 150-250 and be near the top.

Go to "Help" tab and send a complaint that the leaderboard is not being updated. They will then tell you that it is up to date and you don't know how it works. When you look it will be up to date.

I think that whatever they do to check it causes it to be updated.

This is a recurring theme.

The Elo rankings take opponents into account. Look for Ore_Ele's thread on the subject. To search DDO, Google with site:debate.org in the search string.
