I have a numbered star and the numbered star seems to be of significance to a number of people here. And maybe I too, should be excited by this, I just don't know why. It seems that for most people here there seems to be an unknown to a set in stone type rating system. I guess someone knows the mathematical calculations, just not us...lol...Can somebody explain the significance of the numbered star and how and when it goes up or down?

Hi, The star is the rating for mylotters. The highest star is 10 star and lowest is star with 1. You can get higher star rating if you can get a lot of "+" rates from mylotters.

Hi, You are welcome. I can see that you are now 9 red star. You can move your mouse to the star, and then the points will appear. You will know how many points you get for your star.

Well from what I hear, other members have some control over this number. Apparently if someone gives you a - or + this affects the star rating....so don't piss anyone off...

I believe it goes up and down with the number of positif or negatif ratings you get on your discussions and responses. That's why I always try to rate someones discussions or response when I read it. I feel this is important, 'cause I too like to have a rating that is correct. Have a nice day

Hi my friend The numbers represent your MyLot reputation. When you start a discussion or reply to someone else's discussion, there are + and - in the margin. You need to rate that discussion or response according to how you feel about it. That is what determine's a person's number in the star. I feel it is of importance because I feel that with a higher number it means that I've posted items that other people have enjoyed reading. I always try to think about what I write and do the best that I can. Have a nice night, Char

relundad the numbered star is the rating your fellow mylotters have given you its called a reputation rating, and we hit positive on all your stuff andyou get rated accordinly. ten is the highest and its a blue star.it goes up and down depending on how many of us hit positive and how many of us hit negative too many negatives will send your rating down and move your star to a lower one, this should only be done if someone says something insulting or flames someone.
