hi! that is your star rating or mylot reputation. it reflects how other mylot users rate the quality of your discussions, responses and comments whenever you participate in mylot. the rating is from 0 to 10, with 10 being the highest. right now you have a 9 or a 90/100. that is pretty good. congratulations! on the right panel, at the end of the response or topic of discussion, we will find (+-!). this is for us to use and rate accordingly. you achieved a 9 star rating because a lot of mylot users rated you positively for your quality posts. keep doing quality posts and use the rating system accordingly too. coz like you and me, it helps other users get a rating also. enjoy!:)

I disagree totally! the stars are only indicate if you daily or not are here in MyLot posting! When I had more time I had 9. After with less time I had and have 7. If you see here there are a lot of scammers posting only and always referral links and Ponzi's chains and HYIP.... Now think about? How do you think the MyLot staff could rewiew all our post and make a rating for more than 89,000 members? it is a nonsense! Why here people don't use their brain for thinking a lot? The reputation rating is a metropolitan legend! Keep a bit of time and try to think about!

not necessarily, annihilus. :) i don't log in to mylot everyday. around 3-5 days a week at the most. i actually just logged in today after 3 days without mylot. and mylot says that it's not them that gives you the rating, it's our fellow mylot users. :) there are so many factors why the rating can increase or decrease. truly, as you've said, mylot doesn't have time to rate all its 89,705 users (as of writing) so it's up to the mylot community (meaning other mylot users). :) decrease in rating are sometimes effects of the quality of our discussions or responses. irrelevance, senselessness and rudeness never gets a (+) positive response if you ask around. violations can get a negative effect too. when we respond to users who don't know how to give ratings, then we'll surely have a decrease in ratings. so, if there is anything which is unclear to you, it is better to please ask mylot. thanks! :)

When I first got here, I asked the same question; even went to the Mylot folks; but when you hit your 100th posting on here, they give you a star rating on your postings; Seems you have some good ones because you are a nine; I started out on a six and was glad to get it too when I did; I think I'm a nine now. Child not sure; I've been here about two months now and should be getting my first payout and looking forward to it.
