Can someone explain the percentile medal thats displayed on user's profiles? I'm confused as to what it is. does it have something to do with activity/involvement?

From the sites FAQ:

http://www.debate.org...

What do the icons represent?

"Each member has a star next to their username which indicates their debating skills as designated by their percentile. Member percentiles are calculated using the number of debates and the win ratio for each member. The higher the percentile, the higher the ranking. For example, a member in the 75th percentile means that 75% of the other members have a lower rank. Members who have not yet debated, are considered 'Not Ranked'"

If you click the question in the FAQ it will show an image of each of the medals and what it represents.
