ive got 10 stars for so long and then, when i opened mylot today, i was shocked when i saw that my reputation gone low.. i dont know what ive done wrong! i havent been online for almost two months until two weeks ago but my reputation remains the same... then after yesterday, they have lowered my reputation. Is it because i have a discussion that says, if mylot would do something on the site for xmas, what do you want it to be? is that the reason why? Now i know how it feels being in the situation like this. it seems like you are already pleaded guilty without a proper trial. ITS SO UNFAIR! They should have told me why. I didnt do anything wrong.

That is something that happens to all of us at some point. Mine went from a 10 to a 7 overnight after I disagreed with a vengeful person. Your star comes from the members of myLot giving you a + or - when they read your posts. myLot Admin doesn't control your star. I've stopped worrying about the color of my star. I have fun in myLot. I'm going to be honest in what I think & feel here. If what I feel offends someone else, I'm sorry. If they feel strongly enough about it to - me, so be it. I refuse to be intimidated by my star. I am going to continue to enjoy myself here & let the rest do what it will do. I suggest you do the same...have fun, enjoy your posting...be true to yourself. Don't worry about your star!!!

Thnx..Im here for mylot not because ill be earning money. ive been here for a long time but I havent got the minimum payout because i cant be online everyday. I dont mind not having a number of payouts like some mylotters have. Im here because I enjoy posting and giving comments to discussions/topic. It felt so good when I can give my opinion about certain topics and expressed what is on my mind. And that stars beside my name is the only reconciliation that I have, because it meant that ive done good with my posting and comments here in mylot. I felt so proud because i only have 242 discussions and i already got a 10 stars. Then, this thing would happen and I dont have any clue what ive done wrong. Im just a little disappointed about this..

That's what I'm trying to say...you've done absolutely NOTHING wrong!!! During the time you were away, it seems we gathered a collection of members who are jealous of people with a blue (10) star. They & their friends purposely go around minusing all their discussions in order to lower that star. I don't understand what pleasure they get from doing this. I do believe they get their pleasure when they know they have upset someone. So you expressing your disappointment is making someone very happy. I feel nothing but sorrow for the soul that finds pleasure in causing another misery. Your worth here is MUCH MORE than what these people try & make you believe!!! Ignore their attempts to upset you, enjoy your posting. Your star will work it's way back up. You haven't dropped very much, so it should be fairly easy to get back up.

well. it seems some member of mylot rated you negative. perhaps someone who didn't like something you said or who is jealous of your success.

I always thought when your star lowerd it was because you werent active but I was wrong because my star also changed to 9 stars about a month ago and never went back up to 10 stars which I dont think is fair because ive made a lot of good post and been active a lot.

I suffer the same faith with you right now. Just a week ago, my rank increased to 9 as well as my reputation too then it goes back to 8 the next day and thus reducing my reputation. Yesterday, it turned red again and I am so ecstatic about it that I post, post and post and now, it is back to 8 again. I don't know who but I believe someone is giving me a negative rating. I don't know what they will gain from this but I won't stop until I reached that rank 10 and blue star!

Just relax hahaha it happened to everyone here. In my case, i only enjoyed my blue star for few weeks after that it lowered to red (9). I think mylot didn't do anything with the ratings. It's the member here who gave you (-). Just keep myloting untile you get your blue star back. Happy posting.
