On the main site when I click on "users" to see the rankings, I have options to sort by various time duration options. It appears that:

"week" gives "day"

"month" gives "month"

"quarter" also gives "month"

"year" gives "year"

"all" gives "all"

Is anyone else having this problem?

    $\begingroup$ I have changed users in the title to user tab. The original title Users does not appear to be working seemed to indicate that users of this site are lazy. (And jokes aside, I think in this way the title is a wee clearer.) I am not sure what a good choice of tags for this question could be. $\endgroup$ Apr 21 '14 at 7:18

    $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila Weeks start on Sunday. $\endgroup$ Apr 21 '14 at 10:16

  • $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila Weekdays as in "working days"? That probably, but nevertheless, on Stack Exchange, and also in many other countries (e.g. the USA, iirc), the week starts on Sunday. (And I never accepted the change when it was made here, my weeks still start on Sunday.) $\endgroup$ Apr 21 '14 at 15:50
  • $\begingroup$ @Daniel: Hm. So you start your week with a day off? Sounds lazy! ;-) $\endgroup$

The "week" is actually "week to date". Since today is the first day of the week, week to date and day are the same. Similarly, this is the first month of the quarter.

To add a bit to Alex Becker's answer, if you hover your cursor over the time-frame name, you'll be told what the span of that time-frame is (where days begin at 00:00:00 UTC):

  • Top users this week

    Top users this week

  • Top users this month

    top users this month

  • Top users this quarter

    top users this quarter

  • Top users this year

    top users this year

  • Top users all

    top users since math.SE's origin
