How to increase our rating(the star)

I have been wondering how I can reach #9. I have been hovering between 7 and 8. Can someone tell me how to do that? I think you get 1 point when you get a '+' rating. Is that true? If so, it has been a long time since I get a '+' rating. It's time to increase the quality of my posts. How about you? Have you been wondering the same thing?

I totally agree with you. I get '-'s too every now and them because people don't like to hear the truth. I warn people about violations and for that, I usually get a '-'. When I give good tips, at least I think so, I rarely get a '+'. That's just the way it is. Anyway, I just gave you a push. Hope it will help your rating a bit. I know you're a good guy.

I don't even know how to get a star to begin with!!! I suppose it makes sense that the + and - affects your rating, but I don't think it would be one positive or negative would make it go up or down. If I was to design the system, I would put it on a sliding scale. You know, if you have a 10 rating it takes 20 negatives to bring it down to a 9 and if you have a 9 rating it takes 15 negatives to bring it down to an 8. Does that make sense? I'm just guessing though, I don't know how it works. I wish there was more information about how this all works somewhere.

Yes, you will get it when you reach 100 posts. Thanks for your reply. Stay helpful and you'll get a good rating. It's not always true but it does help LOL

I'll just add my two cents... As of what I know, the stars are representations of the ratings other people give us. So it's a given that for every 100 your star rating will be the number of positives minus the number of negatives. But as of what I've noticed, many don't rate the discussions, responses and comments. So here's how I think it is: For the number of responses you have, you remove all of those with ratings(which is we don't know which is which, that's why myLot says don't try to explain to others how they do the computation algorithms of earnings, because it took them years to do that. Heehee) say 300. So with those 300, 90 says negative, the rest positive. So for every 100, it's 30 that says negative, right? Your rating will be 70 then. I say it's like that because not everyone rates, so I hypothesize that it is done that way.

I had no star yet, so I can't speak much. But I have conclusion about - or + value like these: If we talk about a post quality though there's very relative one. There's about like and unlike. If they like our post they'll give + and - to the contrary one. Here's so plural member, but its also a challenge situation please advice me if I have a wrong conclusion
