BUG: Leaderboard weekly XP wrong
My home page correctly shows that I have 40 XP today. The leaderboard shows that I have 0 XP this week. The figures are not compatible.
The week seems to roll over around midnight GMT, regardless of where your time zone actually is. That leads to the homepage and the leaderboard having different numbers, because your homepage is recording everything from Sunday but the leaderboard "this week" only records everything past the weekly rollover.
Could that be what's going on here?
This is still happening, and your explanation sounds reasonable; it does not explain how my "friend" from Australia already has 20 XP for this week but I don't (I'm in New Zealand), Monday 13:10 right now ... (it really ought be in UTC, though, to account for silly things like day-light savings).
Hmmm ... maybe he did earn 20 xp in the 3 minutes between 00:00 UTC and when I looked up this thread :}).
