How come I took 555 which is greater than Rinzwind (550) and Avinash Raj(547) respectively but I look the 4th ??

Can anyone explain what's happening here?

    Seems odd that it would update the score without updating the order. – Oli Feb 15 '14 at 12:58

    @Oli There a lot of asynchronous caching issues across SE (such as the "0 questions featured, but the featured tab is highlit because it actually does have featured questions!" bug we had recently). – user98085 Feb 15 '14 at 13:48

    That's actually a lot more understandable. In this case the scores and their order are only used in this one place. – Oli Feb 15 '14 at 14:56
