My company is making Android apps, mostly little games... Most of them have a view with the users profile and a view with a ranking list.
In the users profile you can see what rank the user is and of course you can see it in the ranking list. The ranking list shows ranks 1 - 100 and if the user is rank 35476 we are showing ranks 35466 to 35486 too, so whatever your rank, you are always in the ranking list.
Now my boss wants me to scroll the ranking list to the users position and I don't understand why you'd want this. You can see the rank in the profile and in my mind, when I go to the ranking list, I want to see the top guys and see how much points or whatever they have and I am not interested in seeing rank 35475 or 35477...this just doesn't make sense to me.
Is there some consensus on where to scroll the ranking list?
