Hello Himy and welcome to mylot. The star is a rating that you get from other mylot members to you discussions and responses. Do you see the = -and ! over to the right of each response and discussion. They are in squares. That is how you rate a discussion. = for positive -for negative and ! is to let myLot know if a person has broken the guidelines.
