I don't get how you get the stars with the numbers beside your name. How do you get this reputation? By earning a lot of money, getting good responses??

Once you hit 100 posts (the number in parenthesis next to your name) you get a star. Your star color and number are directly related to the ratings you get on your discussions and responses. Hope that helps, you're almost there!
