Pretend black triangles get their black triangles at 90. The real one's get theirs at 98.5. Of course I'm just kidding but that wont stop me from trying to maintain a 98.5%.
Welcome to the club! Keep up the great work!

(I think the real explanation is you used to have to have 98.5% to be a black triangle but they bumped it down to 90% on deals.woot. Regular woot still holds onto the old ranking system)

It also takes a few days sometimes to change the icons on the main woot page too. Try checking back in a day or two and log out and log back in. That might help.

I was just going to say that mine match up, which doesn't really answer the question. Thanks, @cowboydann for being more helpful.

And, also welcome. Be ready to give up all your free time to maintain it :)

@okham: Yes. I can see how it can become an obsession. Thanks for the answers
[BTW does commenting on answers to questions I made helps with the ranking? ;o)]

@n0wh3r3man: I hope so, or I've wasted a lot of useful time responding ;)

The old tried-and-true method of logging out and back in solves this problem a lot of times.

@jsimsace:

You beat me to it by three hours.

Do what @jsimsace has suggested. It will either fix your problem or it will fix your problem; there is also a small chance it won't fix your problem, but that is unlikely.

@cowboydann:

I've heard (well, read) that, except that my triangle is black on all woot sites (with a 94ish rep at the moment) so I don't buy it.

And don't listen to @okham... it really doesn't take all that much work to maintain a black triangle. (Some people will argue, but my rep remains a solid 94+% with no deals or questions since January 19.)
