Even so... myLot affirm that they have an intricate system in place to make the star rating work... it does not work... because it relies on the members to do the right thing... and people never do the right thing. Next to each answer... there is a plus and a minus. People are supposed to give you a plus when they like your answer... but they never do... because they forget. However... they never forget to give you a minus if they don't like your answer. The quickest way to see your star rating drop in myLot is to say that you don't believe in God or any form of religion. If you don't... stay away from any question about religion... otherwise they will pulverise you with an avalanche of minus. You get your first star when you reach 100 points. The number on it will be related on how many plus and minus you did receive for your first 100 answers. This is the number of points you need for each star. Of course... one minus cancel a plus out. So if you get 70 plus and 30 minus... your total is 40 points. 5-14 Star Number 1 15-24 Star Number 2 25-34 Star Number 3 35-44 Star Number 4 45-54 Star Number 5 55-64 Star Number 6 65-74 Star Number 7 75-84 Star Number 8 85-94 Star Number 9 95-100 Star Number 10

It shows that you have at least made 100 posts.I don't know the relation the number in the star and your posts number.It may be showing your rating on qualified post number.

No, we only get positive number ratings, whether you get positive or negative ratings.
