It just represents the order number according to score. Person with highest score gets 1, second one gets 2, etc etc....There's a small problem when "live" guild report is requested, only cached characters (those who were already taken "live" in the previous day or two) have order numbers, and new characters get a blank spot. I'll fix that soon.

Totally agree, it already works something like that, more tuning inc
Gyx wrote:2) Has your system been tuned to DK's at all?
This system does not take classes into account, since all classes are equal. For example, all tanks can now tank anything. Yes, some classes are better suited for some encounters, but overall you can finish everything with any class, if you have the same gear. DKs do not get any penalty over other classes in any way, nor do other classes get bonuses over DKs.
3) Items sometimes go hand in hand with Spec. A 32/39 DW DK would not use Titanium Impact Band over Signet of Bridenbrad...simply because Arm. Pen is a fail stat for that build
Agree that items sometimes go hand in hand with Spec. However, in this case, it's questionable if TIB is better than SoB.
Titanium Impact Band:
+41 Armor Pen
Signet of Bridenbrad
Even WoWHead thinks the first one is better: link

This website, like you said in another post, should only be used as a guideline. Even the best scored rogue on some server could be someone who slacks in raids, never brings consumables, starts flaming everyone for his faults, can't push 2k dps, disconnects every 2 min (or goes offline when wipes start). That doesn't mean he should be invited over someone else who does his best in raids. Also, raid leaders should know the differences between classes/specs. Shamans and rogues can't be compared on dps charts, they bring totally different benefits to raid.
About the problem with 18 sta on gloves for tanks: yes, it should be rated higher, however in the current system it can't get a higher score, but it will be fixed in the next few days.
