Title: Duplicates in the Most Revered list
Post by: theras2000 on May 13, 2019, 22:27:32
Hi there.  I found 43 duplicates in the Most Revered list of 1,000 songs.  I downloaded all 1,000 of them yesterday and I've listed everything in an Excel file.  I know that the list changes frequently (perhaps even hourly) but even so, I can see duplicates.  I assume there is some bugs/glitches.  I can show you my Excel file, if that helps.

It might happen due to duplicate files being merged into one, if you could point out a concrete example it would help a lot.

No problem.  Here's a few examples I see right now:

- #159 & #165 "gh-tst.xm"
- #160 & #164 "beyondthestars.xm"
- #197-205 contains 4 pairs of duplicates

For reference, song #201 "_drizzle_.mod" used to have a duplicate at #200, but now that the numbers have all increased by 1, the duplicate at #200 disappeared.  So it seems to me that the duplicates are somehow created and destroyed when the numbers shift due to other songs jumping in the list.

I've attached an Excel file as a .zip with data from 2 days ago.  I hope this helps.
