The star indicates your reputation here in mylot. You have started from a yellow star and it is not the bad starting. The highest rating is blue star with the 10 number in it. And if you go on making quality response or discussions and people here inmylot started rating you "+" then you will rich red star of 9 rating and then finally to blue star. And there is no relation of this star to the earning. It is just the reputation here in mylot community.
