Don't apologize. You didn't do a thing wrong. This is just the star rating continuing with its broken non-working self Plum.

Do not worry. Our ratings sometimes fluctuate but most important, let's hope our earnings do not do so too. I have been happily maintaining a red star with a nine rating for almost a year now.

I don't even look at my star rating...i'd be the same as you. I feel so bad if I feel that I've offended anyone...usually anyway. some people are just hyper sensitive. The rating system means nothing really. speak your mind and as long as y ou are respectful which you seem to be, I wouldn't worry about it.

ya...i know what you mean. I am dealing with a similar situation but for different reasons. I try to answer honest and what I truly feel and be polite and kind. I always am a bit taken aback when I realize i've in some way offended someone with no intent at all.

Dear! Why do you worry so much about star rating. I think it does not effect your earnings in any manner. Just relax, and keep on posting your logical replies and discussions. Participation in the discussions and sharing your views are more important that Star ratings. Enjoy the discussions with your friends and forget about ratings. The calculation method of star ratings is very complex and is not exactly known, how these are calculated, and it is not in your control, so do not worry about it. Keep Smiling!:):)

Hello dear plumwish. I am so sorry that your ranking star points got decreased. Please do not feel sad. I am sure that it will come back to the previous one, or maybe a higher one. In fact, the ranking star points are just like our life, full of ups and downs. Cheer up and thank you so much for the link of the discussion of that one. Have a good time.

People here will rate you negative for various reasons, they could disagree with your post or they could rate you negative for not having the same opinion as you. I was under the impression that debates were welcome here but if you debate against someones topic they will rate you negative, some people will even find every post you made just to give you a negative rating. Do not take it to heart.

When doing a discussion we should always do it fairly. We should even out our thoughts not putting others down on it. People have the right to speak their heart out but we should not be rude when people are responding against what you wanted to hear from them.

Also consider that there was a holiday, and people didn't or couldn't respond as usual... that star rating bounces all over the place no matter what you do... I never even look at mine.

I am sorry that you are dropping points on your rating, but it is nothing. The whole point of a place like this is to be able to air your views and if we cannot do that what is the point. I see absolutely nothing wrong with the discussion you were talking about and I doubt it is down to offending anyone it is probably just someone being daft about it and taking it the wrong way. I never pay any attention to that little star, I stopped being excited about stars when I left school!!

I'm sorry your points went down. I hope they will come back up soon. I know you would never intend to offend anyone here. I enjoy your discussions. I hope you didn't lose points because of negative ratings from your discussions. You have the right to voice your opinion. We all do and should not have to pay for it by losing points, discussions or earnings. I wish you well my friend.

I think there may have been some -ve ranking. Also i am not sure if it is only the case. something similar happened to me. i asked the same question at Mylot. somebody told me that it may be no one is rating me at all. so my average rating is decreasing.try to add comments and then may be some rate you +. i have alreay rated you +.

maybe you'll be happy to see MY star ranking :) and I guess if you give negative rating to other people, your star ranking will also go down. I've done it quite a lot, but I don't regret it, because they deserve a negative rating.

Don't worry too much about it. You have so many posts anyway that it will take longer for your rating to go down. Mine can go down anytime! Some people are just nasty and like to bring others down and hit the (-) for whatever. I hit the (+) button 99% of the time. If someone says something I don't like, unless it's very extreme and warrants a negative rating, I usually just skip over it. I am sure everyone offends others on here from time to time, but if you maintain a good rating as you have, I am sure it will go up again in no time. I just gave you some (+)'s!
