I was wondering how you earn a rank. I figured it'd give it to you based on Debates and Elo, but I have 3 Debates, 3 Wins, 11 Forum post, 8 votes cast, 90 Opinions made, and 4 Opinion Questions made, and still don't have one.

That wouldn't be an issue because that's not really a lot. I'm just wondering now because of people like RobDeSenelstun, who only has 1 Debate, and 16 Forum Posts, but a rank of 82.68%.

And many others like him.

So what determines my rank than? Or at least how do I get one?

It's determined purely by number of wins.
Debate me: Economic decision theory should be adjusted to include higher-order preferences for non-normative purposes http://www.debate.org...

Do you really believe that? Or not? If you believe it, you should man up and defend it in a debate. -RoyLatham

I just saw your profile... It's probably just slow to update.

I think it ties into who you defeat as well.

Could be a bug.

You should have a percentile ranking.
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!

The "percentile" rank is not tied to ELO, but just to your number of wins. And the system is slow to update.
