All projects are dynamically ranked, and updated in real time. Your rank reflects how your project is performing compared to all other Discoverable projects in your same category. In some instances, if there are many placement announcements that day, the performance of other scripts may have caused your overall rank to stay the same or even drop, even if your personal score went up.
For instance, a competition could announce placements that cause your overall rank to drop by 10. Then, your placement is calculated and your overall rank increases by 2. While your day-to-day rank may seem lower, this is only because of the performance of your peers. In this example, you are still keeping pace with other writers on our platform.
