    Ask Yahoo, not us. We are just users like you and would have no idea how their site is set up. FYI, I doubt very seriously that they will give you the information, but you can try. good luck!

    They just keep track of the points earned. The leaderboard is based only on points. Top contributors are based on number of best answers and activity.
