Something has changed just recently, and I'm wondering if it's intentional, or a glitch. Now, when I give a new member a 10, it shows as 9.9999.

Glitch? Gotop100 never has glitches!!!

I'm not sure, we just fixed some things with the ratings, let me check.

This should be working correctly now.

This was a floating point problem.

In case you're curious, you can learn why floating point numbers don't work well for representing exact values.

Thanks Tim!

See? It wasn't a glitch ;) LOL
