My Star Is Improving...

I noticed yesterday that my star was bumped up to seven from six. I still haven't figured out what the significance of the stars are but I'm improving, I guess. Does anyone else know what the stars mean?

The stars are a rating that you get from other myLot members for every discussion you respond to or post. That is what the + - ! are for next to each post. Congrats on improving, but a little advice I would offer is to not get to caught up in this little star rating system. Just enjoy yourself.

Oh, I don't put much stock in them because I know that I accidentally gave someone a plus when I intended to give them a minus for being so critical and condemning of not only my post but several others. I finally reported the woman to the site because everything she responded to was insulting and abusive and I thought they should know about it. Ordinarily, I'd just let it go but she was hurting people and that is not what this site should be about.

I wouldnt worry to much about the star, Mine was a 3 when I first got it but it is up to a 4. just continue to do what you are doing and it should go back up, at least that is the advice I got from mylot friends. I am not too concerned about it anymore.

if someone rates you with positive or negative if affects your star rating so if one rates you positive it can increase your star or someone rates you negative you star level can drop down

I always thought that it was a rating to tell other people how good or bad you are doing. I hope is has nothing to do with our pay because it has a lot of serious flaws.
