You can find strange tips on many occasions. It's a pitty that LimeSurvey GmbH seldom conducts survey on their own ;-)

If you have e.g. 5 items and apply a array filter the number to rank is still 5 (even though a few items are hidden via array filter).
The basic concept of removing things via JavaScript afterwards is not taken into account.
It would be better to allow overriding all tips via GUI on every language tab. Perhaps via Scripting/Variables.
