Bug in ranking list?

So, MiniLD 40 votation closed! I got a  on Theme! My first silver medal in LD! Thanks!!

But as I was scrolling through the overall ranking list, I noticed the ranking was:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (TIE), 5 (TIE), 5 (TIE), 8, 9, 10, …

My question is, shouldn’t the guy in the 8th be in 6th place instead? Since there is 3 guys tied at the 5th position.

Maybe the script that assigns the numbers doesn’t contemplate the tied positions?

    There were 7 people in front of them so therefore they are in 8th place. I would guess that was in intention and it seems to make sense to me.

    It would be great if some admin could clear this up for me :)

    The rankings are supposed to be this way. You’re right that it’s not the only system that can be used, although it is the most common way of handling ties.

    Your rank shows your place in relation to the number of people in front of you.

    eg, A person who is ranked 5th has 4 people in front of them. A person who is ranked 8th has 7 people in front of them.
