I recently noticed when I answered a discussion, a gold star with the number 8 in the middle of it appeared above my name. What do these gold stars represent?

That star is your reputation, or how well other users on MyLot think of you. The Highest reputation lvl is 10, and if you hover your mouse over your star, you can see something that says 83/100 when that number gets higher or lower based on how other users rate your discussions, your reputation level changes.

Hi silentangel, congrats my friend. When you reach 100 posts, you will get star rating or simply rating. The top star is no.10 within blue star. This means our quality or how others rate us. If anyone derates you, will decline the rating and comes down.

Now that you know what the star is, next thing to do is get 200 posts and you get to use these and "style" your text. It's the mlot code to the left of the discussion response box! Welcome to mylot.

Hi silentangel, I think you got your answer now. That star represents your reputation here in mylot. I am also like you before when I started, I am wondering what that star means and why others have different colors than mine. Well, good for you, you got that rating in your 100 posts? others, got below than what you have. Congratulations!! you;re doing great!!!

The star by someones name is like their rating. 1 is the worst, and 10 is the best. Its based on how people rate your discussions/posts.
