hi! that's the rating tool we use when we rate the discussion we responded to, as well as the responses and comments we receive whenever we start a new discussion. it is a good practice to always rate accordingly the contribution of other mylot users. this is the same rating tool that was used for you to achieve your mylot reputation. you have a 9 star rating because mylot users find quality in your posts. (+) positive, when the post is relevant, meaningful and useful (-) negative, when the post is not appropriate, not revelant, no sense at all (!) abusive, when the post violates mylot regulations hope this helps. :) and i hope too that you will use this rating tool also. ;)

It is to rate the discussion or to rate an answer. (+) positive, (-) negative, or (!) to report abuse. If you move your cursor over the symbols it will show you what they stand for. It is always nice to rate the discussions and you diffently rate any answers you get on discussions that you start.

The + means postive to the dissucions you are reading - means negitve and ! means you are contacing mylot to let them know something about the disscusion that you are reading. I mark most of the disscuaions I read + for postive. it helps for payment to i think it does any how. Best of luck to you.
