Hi everyone,
My IMDB ranking plummeted 4.5 million this week. ???? Prior to this, my ranking was pretty consistent, between 100,000 and 200,000. I am still working on the same project I've been on all year and nothing has really changed except my ranking. Never seen this before and was quite surprised so, my question is, is this a big mistake? Is someone messing with me? I don't believe it to be correct at all. Is there somewhere or someone I can address this with? Thank you for your help! Here's my page url: www.imdb.com/name/nm1024391
Thanks again.

Hi Susan -

Fluctuations in STARMeter rankings are more evident in people with lower rankings (i.e. higher than 50,000). STARMeter rankings are based on several statistical indicators, including the frequency and number of people who access a person's page or credits on IMDb.

As is often the case when statistical calculations are performed on such a large sample of data, even small variations in popularity may produce significant changes in rank.

When an individual is very popular, the average interest of users over time remains fairly constant; with less popular names, it's more common to have sudden and sharp increases or decreases in the number of people who visit their page or see their credits.
