I'm pretty sure this is precisely how the system works. You bring the ones
you care about to the top and rank them, and everything else shares a rank
at the bottom (or you could pick a few of those that you really dislike and
put them even lower than the default rank). But the point is that you
shouldn't need to rank every single logo, just the ones you care about and
then you leave the rest at the default rank.
