I open mylot and noticed that my stars moved down. I feel sad, a little bit frustrated and disappointed. I feel like quiting and not continue anymore. For me it matters so much for it is my motivation to keep on posting and replying.

Don't be upset, friend. It is ok to see the stars fall down. We cannot always expect to be on top. It is just like our life, sometimes up and sometimes down. Of course, it would be encouraging to have always the stars go to the top till blue with 100 mylot reputation.

Thanks william. Yeah i guess, i tried not to be upset but somehow it affects me. Im trying not to too emotional and think that its just a star what matters most is my earning,but still i can't help but feel sad. Anyways, i think i'll need to consider this as another bad days of my life and a motivation to move on. Thank you so much buddy! :)

Good morning, friend. You are welcome. I can understand you because I have experienced something like you, that is, one of my discussions was deleted days ago, which made me so upset because I did not see anything in the discussion that is against mylot...

Ohh my! You mean to say, our co-mylotters can delete our discussions? Waaaahhh(cries)it could not be. How dear they could do that. I slept almost 3 am in the morning just to leave my discussion all done and responded; and they may just delete it? Come on. How come they can do it buddy? :(( Buddy william, how can we know such person who may rate us negatively? Coz that's what I heard too that when you will be rated negative your star may go down. OUCH!

*blush* Wow! I really don't know what to say. I've had other people on my friends list do the same. I'm almost convinced though that its someone or a group of people making alt accounts and rating me downward.

Star Ratings - Don't let the Stars control how or what you feel about mylot
If my star moves up or down it doesn't matter to me anymore I just enjoy coming in here to post to a discussion or sometimes I just come in here and read or talk to some of my friends. Don't let the stars make you feel like quitting or staying. It really isn't a big deal. I know some people in here that have started some really good discussions and have really low stars and it doesn' bother them. Star ratings no big deal. just have fun.

Yeah shooie let's have fun! Im more ok right now. Thanks to you and to other responses that inspired me. it sure helps me a lot and motivate me to go on. I'll try not to be more conscious about this star thing. There's still more wonderful things here at mylot than just that star. Thanks again girl!:)

Ohhh heeyyyyyy....why was that sheen? When I open your profile to send you some comments I seen this message and really catched my attention. Gosh! Why was it like that? Nah ah sistah. Don't ever quit. If you do I will quit too. Maybe there were some people out there pulled you down.(sigh) Duh sistah. Let's not count our star anymore. Let's just continue and as far as I know your earnings were increasing that much. Let's hit October to be our payout sistah. Don't worry if they pulled you down, I am sure my brother can give a hundred star you want. Heeey cheer up sheen.

i'm sorry to hear that. several weeks ago, my stars got down to 8 from 9. i was very sad and disappointed, but now it turns back, so take it easy, and post more and more qualified discussions and responses, then it will turn back soonly. besides, it is not the most important thing here. you can express your feeling and you have friends here, so dont' have the thinking of quitting from mylot. good luck, friend. i hope you can get it back in few days.

I understand how you feel. Its very frustrating. This seems to be happening to me a lot lately. You shouldnt just give up and quit though. I know so many people on here dont post anything that would make someone else mad. And they do this because of fear of their rating going down. We are supposed to be able to express our opinions and we shouldnt have to worry if we are going to make someone mad. Just give it a couple of days im sure you will get right back up there. Good luck!

Hi there, what's been up to lately buddy? Well, we have different stories regarding that Star Rating thing here. My star doesn't move down either move up for more than 2months and it's seems that this Star of mine is Stuck with me. I am doing such effort and receiving good feed backs with my discussions and responses but still, my #9 doesn't move up to #10. I wanna get that Star Rating 10 but im Stuck with my #9. But it doesn't worry me that much, coz i am still happy whatever Star I have here, coz even we don't have any star here my dear, we are still able to earn here and that is the most important. "Star Rating is just a computer thing" and that's came from, from one of my friend here who responded on my discussion to help me to motivate myself even without having that Star. So Cheer up! Have a nice day ahead and happy posting and earning here in myLot. Ciao, Kiko

Hello there vash, YOur 9star rating as of now is equavalent to 86% only. You need to make an extra effort to make it grow until it became 96% if you can hit 100% much better that time your star will be turn to blue. As for me I came from a 9 star to yellow with the ratings of 76% only. Pretty low that's what makes me sad. Well, maybe your right. What is important is the earnings and I will make that as my motivation from now on. Thanks for the respond buddy!:) sheen

This happens to everyone. I see a lot of people post about it. I never did because I know it isn't permanent, and we can't change it anyway. But if we continue to do good discussions and good responses, then it will go back up before we know it. It did for me.

Thank you AmbiePam. I will continue on posting and try not to be more particular with the star. Hope i will works for me too. :)

did you happen to have any kind of argument with any of the mylot users? if so, he/she might have given you negative ratings so that is why your rating must have gone down. i saw a similar discussion posted somewhere where the discussion starter told that he had an argument with someone and that user rated him with a minus on as much posts as possible and his mylot reputation went down drastically in a matter of one update.

Hi there, Ohhh that's sad. I can't remember any. I tried as much as possible to be polite in every responses i made. I think it has something to do with the topic i had posted. It earns so much violent reactions from some mylotters. I think that's the reason why, but hope not. I believe every individuals is intitled to their own opinion. And I believe it's not enough of a reason to give a -rating to anybody. Well that is if i had to view it. Wheww so much of that. well,I think i need to compose myself again. This will not affect me and i won't let this star thing bother me anymore. Thanks buddy!:)

Hello meaculpa, I don't know what happened and what's the reason behind. I always see to it that i have responded and I see to it that i can make it regularly here. Infact this is the only site I visit regularly and my priority site. I just noticed it awhile ago that it actually moved down. That's why im a little bit sad.

I am sorry for you. On mylot this is one thing which is negative. Your star rating goes down, your posts are deleted, your earnings go down. But you do not know the reason why it has happened. It does not give you any chance to improve or I would say rectify your mistakes.

Yes indeed kishusia. We can only do better the next time and hope that we did it right this time and so there's no posts deleted nor stars get down. I just wish that next time we will be notify and so we can correct and improve our performances. But if not let's just continue on what we are doing and hope for the bests! :)

hello sheenmadness, don't be sad, you can still work on it, take it as a challenge not as a defeat. it feels disappointing but that really happens not just to you but to other people here in mylot. i experienced that too, i got the highest star w/c is blue (10)in my third week here but then in my fourth week it went down to red (9) star. but i still keep on going cause i don't care too much about the star but the quality of discussions i make here and the enjoyment that i get replying to discussions. Jst enjoy your time here sheenmadness, you'll get back your star without even knowing it. HAPPY POSTING AND GODBLESS!

I see this was started a week ago, so I'm sure glad you didn't leave! Really, hon, don't let it get you down. I'm still working on getting to a 9 but I know there are some who have given me negatives because they disagree with me and I don't shy away from hot topics. I always make sure to be polite and respectful but I guess some people miss the whole point of myLot which is to have discussions and you're not expected to rate people based on what their opinions on certain issues are but on whether or not their posts add to the discussion or if the discussions they start are good and thought provoking. Anyway, hang in there and you'll get it back up in no time! Annie

Hello annie, I'm happpy to see you around here girl! :) Yeah, I first thought of quitting because it had decreased. And my star was really my motivation in keep on posting and keep on going to mylot. My earnings are just second in line. Yeah, that's the saddest part in here. We can't really pleased everybody. I tried to be polite too as much as possible so I could not offend anyone here at mylot but maybe my efforts are not still enough because they rate me negative. Though I'm a little bit okay right now but i have not totally get over it. Thanks for the inspiration Ann !:0
