I can't find my own rank on the "Top Participants" page, which does happen from time to time, but is typically resolved by the next run.

How do I found out when the ranking were last calculated?

Is there a section of server statistics that has this info?

Judging by the difference between my current score and the score shown in the table, about 13 hours ago. Perhaps assume 'daily' as a plausible interval?

The stats pages are normally updated once a day. Sometime, if you fall on the "page break" as you could do just now, they do "break", this is a known "feature" of the way the SQL query that gathers and displays the data works and can be grade one pain (I've been on the page fold a number of times over the years and have appeared twice, and zero times due to this bug).
I would assume you should be, currently, a couple off the top of this page https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/top_users.php?sort_by=expavg_credit&offset=1040, but could very easily have been on the fold at the time of the last stats dump.

I seem to recall there is something odd about how the stats pages are updated.
Along the lines of when the page is requested it is updated if it hasn't been in the past N hours.
So then the time that each page can be updated gets out of sync after a while and we get people lost between the pages.
