why dont download rankings match editor star ratings?

i am confused by the editor star ratings
5* ratings for a software are confusing when the left hand side of the page shows another ranking eg no 15 of 243.
there is no easy way to find out the other 14 rankings to pick the best which editors rank and * the software.
surely both should be consistent?
may I suggest that both be correlated and kept up to date;
old rankings may be meaningless compared to later 5* REVIEWS BY THE EDITORS.
otherwise the two data are confusing me in my choice for best software for a task.
other sites manage to have a quick selection guide [eg techsupport alert or pc mag].
which cuts the hassle of unnecessary reassessment which CNET forces me to do.
please redesign your software editor ratings to correlate with the ranking of that software so that the 5* software have the highest rankings.
otherwise make clear why there are differences.
have a table of ranked software as well.
explain why this differs from the ed's 5*s.
otherwise remove the confusion so that only one rank/rating prevails.
