Ghost there getting into areas they shouldn't be looking in
(or the firewall just wrongly flagged up suspicious activity)
Wonder if there's a 500 error page?
There is, but it's just the old static noise flickering logo "we're currently off air but will be back soon" page.
And as to the kudos, that's why I had it where you could have "joint xth place" so it didn't really matter whether you came above or below, you'd both be in the same place. But yes, it's kudos received, given, then name. You could base it on other criteria I guess - should someone who has contributed longer be higher? Or kudos spread over the most number of posts? Highest single post? It could be sliced in many ways.
Looking at the top ten, you really have to impress Andrew and noggin to get their appreciation - be proud if you get one of theirs!
