I noticed we are ranked in a particular interest. And I don't know how but I wonder about these ranks. Has it something to do with your ratings? Or number of posts? Are they important at all? How well do you know about it?

I do not think that rank has anything to do with ratings or posts . They are just informative . Not important at all in my opinion :-)

I agree with this. They are just informative, AND we can do nothing about it! They are definitely NOT important. This is just my opinion. :)

Hello Calyxus, Well, in my own opinion, our ranks is very important, especially if our one reason of coming here is to earn money. I do believe that the higher our rating, the more chances of getting a higher earnings. I do believe that mylot is using this rating system to give an overview of how active and useful responses of a certain individual is. They have us encourage to post a detailed and valuable discussions, they also have us encourage, to never forget to rate members whose discussions are useful or relevant. So if you are to connect, they are letting us help how a certain individual is given its earnings. That is just my opinion. Thanks!

Yes, I think so. Ratings won't be there for nothing. Thanks for the comment.

No, the number beside your name,in your case (146) are your participation points and have nothing to do with your rank.When you reach 200 participation points you will be able to use the smiley's.

The rankings probably have something to do with our ratings. And our ratings are solely dependent upon other users. And like I have said multiple times before, any person who doesn't like you for whatever reason can follow you around from discussion to discussion rating you negatively for no reason. This is why the rating system should be abolished completely. :) Anyway, these rankings are not important in the slightest.

Really? I think so too that ratings are easily abused, but on other discussions, I heard it was monitored by the mylot admin. Ok, I'll take your word for it that they are not important at all... But, would you not want to be ranked 1 out of thousands of other users? Hehe!
