comment What is the best way to graphically display item's position in a ranking?
@infoal Interesting. I have to admit I totally missed that and assumed right-most meant better ranked.

I actually like this idea. It definitely invokes a sense of rank or podium. However, don't you think it makes more sense to invert the triangle so that the better ranked items are on a taller bar? (Like the iPhone signal bars)

How about cell signal bars?

Yes, I definitely agree that users associate the bar with "percentage complete". The stars look promising, but it may also be associated with "ratings" or "grade" which is a slightly different concept.

I also though about using the percentage (table on right). My only concern is whether users will immediately understand that 1% (top ranked) is better than 100% (bottom ranked).

The "out of" approach (table on left) would be great, if it weren't for the fact the each row may belong to different rankings. Therefore, the total number may vary row by row. This is also one of the reasons why I'm trying a graphic approach.
