Okay this is my third day on mylot and I just got a star next to my nick. I've seen start like mine around, but I have no idea what they mean. Can anyone explain it to me? What is it and how does it work?

Your star is your rating or reputation. If you move your cursor over your star it will tell you your rating. It is all about how many +'s and -'s you get. If you get a + your rating goes up if you get a - your rating goes down. Happy mylotting!!

You're welcome. When you reach 200 you can use the mylot code. Which is smilys and being able to bold and whatnot. Then when you reach 500 you can copy and paste. Good luck!

Thanks for the info :) To be honest I can't wait till I reach 500. Copy and Paste can come in handy sometimes :)

:) 3 days!you are posting so fast. and i noticed calajane you added 532 interests! a star can add your earnings,when you have posted 100 post,you will get one. it has different colors and different levels. if your post good quality responses,you will get a high level. the higest level is 10,and the star will turn to blue then. you are a so hardworking girl(lol) good luck!

now your level is 6,and you can earn 1-3 cents/response. you can get a higher level when people rate a "+" to your response. If your level is 10,sometimes you can get 5 cents/response. :) so it is quite important to make good quality responses.it is the best way to earn more but work less. Good luck,girl!

i got my first star one week after i signed up mylot, and it's 7, a not bad number and rating for a one-week member ,i think. the star does mean your reputation and others' rating on you, if you can't respond to all the responses, someone will get upset and will rate you down. lol.
