That is quite nifty, yes. The one thing it can't do, though.... is predict whether or not a user you've been tied with (or 10 exp behind) for weeks/months... is gonna finally miss that deposit today or... whether they'll deposit 5 minutes before midnight yet again, denying you a chance to sneak by them and grab a REAL rank gain.
For example, I moved up from #102 to #101 in my profile days and days ago, but I happen to know that's only because I'm 10 exp behind someone who doesn't deposit until AFTER the ranks update at 4:35 AM ET and thus I tie them before that and my earlier sign-up date gives me the tiebreaker.
But later every single day, he deposits as well. Grrrrrr.
hahahah... so fitting. I just now went to your site for the first time in a couple days...
and what do I see?

Well whaddayaknow. The user in question (Soul_Edge) must have missed a deposit late in the week, because he's the one I was talking about. I haven't yet deposited today, so that means we're now tied and I hold the tiebreaker. And not only that, but I'm even with Yota and will be 10 exp ahead within the hour.
I AM FINALLY IN THE TOP 100!!! WAHOOO.
But yes, I think I should point out that my other post's point still stands: if the ranks updated as dynamically as the exp amounts themselves do, then your list would be even better. :::nods::: #;-}>
But so much for false hopes... THE DREAM IS ALIVE! Hahahahahfaiewhfwew. Wheee!
