I've noticed that, on some days, I can find my "name" up to 4 times (at the same time) listed in the webpages for the Top participants http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/top_users.php
Also, sometimes I am not listed at all since my RAC falls in between pages (slightly too high on a certain page but slightly too low on the "previous" page).
This is happening less frequently now that my RAC is starting to level off.

The same also occurs for my primary rig on the list of Top computers/Top Hosts http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/top_hosts.php
but less frequently.

If this is a bug, where do I report it?

Did you try F5 or Ctrl+F5 (before and after "Previous 20 ยท Next 20")?

At the moment of post you are at 3045

I was pressing F5. (didn't know about Ctrl+F5)

Should I try to replicate also with Ctrl-F5?
(considering my RAC is not increasing as much now that it is starting to level off, I should still be able to find at least 2 occurrences on different pages)

FYI, as of this post's time, my RAC on http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/home.php is: 9,191.27
...and I am not showing up on the page with RACs in my range, which was:

I just found an instance of my primary rig being on 2 pages at the same time (even after using Ctrl-F5)

Using f5 to refresh will move your position up as the credit above and below you changes, the query is re-run.

However using the "next"/"previous" buttons on the web page steps you through the results of the query you first ran.

OK, I see you now at 2880 and 2888 with different RAC and Credit (no matter if I use Ctrl+F5)

.....
2888	Stubbles69	9,245	277,942	Canada	29 Nov 1999, 23:28:13 UTC


At the left (here) I see yet another "version" of the numbers:
Credit: 282,078
RAC: 9,269

So there seem to really exist bug on "Top participants" pages (in top_users.php or in database)

P.S.
I just sent Message to David Anderson
