Inaccurate Sitewide Rankings
« on: May 12, 2008, 08:28:54 AM »
See attached image (Don't laugh at my suckage, I've been essentially inactive for a while).
If you add my sitewide points up, they equal exactly 43.5 points.
However, on the sitewide rankings, it appears as 43.6.

Known rounding error. I can't really do anything about it.

It's actually not an error.  It's simply math rounding.
Take 3.3+3.3+3.3.
Round each individual part, you get 3+3+3=9.
Round just the answer and you get 3.3+3.3+3.3=9.9 rounds to 10.
It's not an error, mathematics was made that way.  Blame the Egyptians, Babylonians, and Greeks.  <_<

Are banned players supposed to be counted in Sitewide Rankings?
