Quick query re: SNES Super Mario Kart scores

I had a game of this the other night - for old times' sake - and submitted the score just for shits and giggles...

I've been pleasantly bemused by my score's going up and down the table over the last few days seemingly with a momentum all of its own...

At the time of writing, on my profile page I'm number 2 (yay!). On the score table I'm at 11. And over the past few days I've been up and down the scale on both!

I'm not really bothered, but was wondering - is there a logic behind the placings? If there was I might submit another score or two and if not, I'll just play it for fun anyway... for me, it's just about perfect as a game.

Well, I... um... yes.



Not to worry!

Like I said, its mainly for fun...

...but I am intrigued as to why I was No. 2 on my rankings page when I made the OP a few days ago, No. 3 last night, No. 4 this morning, and back up to No. 3 again as I write this!

One of life's mysteries

Re: Quick query re: SNES Super Mario Kart scores

Its the site's algorithm sorting itself out. Sometimes things get a bit out of whack but they usually sort themselves out by the next refresh.

Re: Quick query re: SNES Super Mario Kart scores

Cheers. I do like to think of the RU algorithm master-brain rattling away, steam coming out here and there, the sound of pistons and clanking...

(Btw I've slid back down to no. 9 now. )
