My new plan to get a ten star

May 21, 2007 9:13pm CST
Over the last few weeks I hiave made it my personal mission to reach a ten. In doing so I went to a 9 which was a step forward and then straight back down to an 8. I have investigated if I should flirt with the ten stars but they all assured me it was nothing to do with them, then I started following arounf ten stars only responding to them in the hope it was catching, then I had a few people - some of who were quite freaky - follow me about +ing me everywhere and now I have a new one. I have a blue star tattooed on me. I would love to lie and say I got this done for myLot but I already had it done before. SO I edited it and now I have a star so I think I really do deserve one. Please join my campaign.

Of course you deserve 10 stars, but the only way you will reach that is if you become boring and non controversal, only reply to discussions your best friends start, and start discussions that don't annoy anyone at all, refuse to reply to discussions where anyone could take offence at any of your replies, so that you will only be given a + rating (and no -ve ones). OR YOU COULD BE YOURSELF, the way the rest of us really want you to be, which could lead you to get a few - veratings. Its really your choice, but I know which kind of your discussions I would really like to respond to. Best of luck in your quest.

No one has commented on my tattoo picture though. Did you o[pen it up. I think it is really really funny. I am starting to get a bit bored by it all.

It looks very good, but 10 is not enough for your own personal star, increase it.

I will do just that. Can I add a pic to a private message though. Maybe I should add it as a comment to their page.

I have 9 stars, I'm glad to see the stars get up and up, but it doesn't move up when I have 9 stars. Do you think it is connected with the amount of discussions? I often give a long and useful response, but the stars still are 9. Frankly, I don't care much about it. I just want to know how does the star work. I hope you can make your wish(ten stars) come true. It is proud to have 10 stars, and you can also get more money from a response. Good luck. Do you have other good sites? How long have you joined here? Do you have referrals here? 996 is too much for me.

Lol. Well I have 3 referrals but none of them use the place. Only one of them made 4 responses. Apparently the star is a reflection of how the other users rate you but I don't think it is actually very effective. I have alot of responses but I have been here for a few months. Some poeple post alot more than me.

Actually you should leave it a picture of yourself, as a cute girl I think you would get just as many + ratings by having yourself as by having a cat. :)

You never give up do you lol Believe me you are better without the 10 star, you will have to learn to be boring like me to keep it :) I was happy with the blue star at first but it's really not important and I'm sure you are more popular than me but more idiots are rating you negative because they are too conservative or religious freaks, i may have some good friends rating me positive but I'm not really that popular.. do you really want to stop being a "bad girl" for a silly little star?? I don't think so lol

is this a permanent tatoo???it's wierd! hehe...Anyways I also working out on my 10 stars. I had 9 and then i went down to eight, i don't know why..then I posted a discussion that i was really dismayed of my 8 starts and it went back to 9...so everyday i'm checking if Im getting more and more reputations...hope we can get those blue stars...we should help each other.
22 May 07
Well I gave you +. DO you really htink my star tattoo is weird. I got it about 2 years ago alomost. How time flies. I quite like it and I haven't seen many other people with tattoos there. It's good cos I can hide it or show it off and I have worked out it is the only part of my body that is never going to sag.

Don't make it so hard on you to make the ten star mission. You will see that sooner or later you will get the 10 star. That's what happens to me. I was not experting to have a blue star and then I saw it next to my name. And my saying that you want a blue star people can look at it and think "Ohh you want a blue star? then take this minus". So the best way is to keep this mission to yourself and one day you will see that you going to get the star. Sooner then you think.

Is that a real permanent tattoo? Obviously I know the 10 isn't (I hope!!) That's a good place to have one actually but I'm sure it must have really hurt - mine hurt enough and that's just on my shoulder. To the main issue - I'm of the opinion now that most of the stuff that happens on here is just random anyway. I see crap people with 10 stars and really cool interesting people with 5 or 6 stars. I just think myLot make it up as they go along the same way that they seem to deal with most stuff. I honestly wouldn't take it personally. There could be some loony following you about it neg rating you but really there's not much you can do about it. Eventually you would think they'll get fed up and start following someone else around instead.

It is a real tattoo and it didnt hurt at all. I got it spur of the moment but collapsede in a net cafe after it. My friend Michelle came in with me but our other friends thought I was faking it cos I have a big fear of needles/

Its really confusing I see some members who are below 500 posts and yet having a ten blue star in ranking. I really don't know how mylot rate us, I just thankful that I have red 9 star and it stay with me for quite a long time. Personally I don't care if I never reach the 10th star as long as I would also not decrease my ranking from 9. Somehow it gives a little confidence and add some self esteem. Although I'm not bother if I don't have it, it would be nice also to have that. Well I just hope maybe in a long run I will also find myself having a blue 10th star.

Good luck on your campaign but at 1000+ posts it would be a bit hard. I've heard someone say that the ratings you get is somewhat proportionate to your posts...or something. Anyways, I also had that mission to reach a ten star and good thing I've reached that goal...though for how long, I don't know. Here's what I did, I've noticed that I've only been responding to discussions and there were no changes in my rating so I started posting my own discussions and after several days, I saw that elusive ten star. So just try posting quality discussions that everyone would respond to and you'll eventually get there. Good luck on your mission.

This star thing is kind of silly in a way. I think it would be much better if they started everyone with a 10 rating, and it is yours to keep or loose. People might work harder to keep their ratings, especially if it means a few extra bucks along the way. Then again, it might backfire as some would get negative ratings for no good reason.

Don't worry about the color of your star so much as the posts that you post. When the color of your star begins to effect your earnings, then you should begin to worry. In an effort to help you out, I will rate some of your posts for you....good-luck.

Well I have been a 10 for about 5 months now - but then I came here this morning and I've dropped at an 8!!! LOL! Must have had lots of Neg. reps from someone. As you can see I am really not so bothered by it. Until MyLot get rid of this daft system of negative repping people just because they disagree with your point of view, then such things will happen, and as I have no intention of keeping my mouth shut on topics that mean a lot to me, just to fit in with other people - I guess it will happen again. The view from "8" is cool anyway!!!
24 May 07
You should see it from 7. its spectacular although you must have felt a bit sick falling form a 10 so fast

I like your tattoo. I wish you the best of luck on getting your 10 star here on MyLot, but I wouldn't worry about it too much. From what I have seen you start pretty good discussions and the like. There are a lot of people on here who will give you negative ratings for all the wrong reasons and there's not much that you can do about your star rating.

I reckon my star is going to plummet even lower with all the new ones I have been starting. They are a bit frisky.
