I'm sure this is answered somewhere, but the forum search tool isn't super useful and I figured it would just be better to ask here than sort through the 500 pages of results I get when I put that question into the search filter.

For instance, I've seen people (like me!) who have albums listed at #1 in their overall chart, where the rank score assigned to that album is less than 100, but rather a weird, arbitrary seeming number like 87. How does this happen? I'm thinking that it's not coincidence that my overall chart has a rating of 87, so is rank score multiplied by (1/chart score)?

Apologies for the difficulty in finding this information. The rank score for a greatest album chart gets decayed over a 10 year period from when a chart was last updated (eventually going to zero if a chart hasn't been updated for 10 years or more). This doesn't apply to year or decade charts as they cover discrete periods.
