Your mylot reputation star is determined largely by other users here and how helpful they find your posts. Since joining a few months back my star has fluctuated up and down. The only way to improve your star and get it back up to an 8 is to continue to post really in depth, high quality posts. It's then up to the other mylotters here to rate your posts and responses using the plus or minus sign which can be seen to the right of each post. You as an individual can also determine other users but you cannot rate yourself as this will defeat the object. Hope this gives you a little more infor as to why your star has decreased. To me the sole reason is another user here has selected the minus sign next to one of your posts. It may not even have been a bad post submitted but you do find that some users might have a very different opinion to you and instead of giving there's they'll rate you down as well. It's a shame this happens and I don't tend to rate people down as I think everyone has a valued opinion here no matter how different. On occasions I vote in favour of posts if they are really exceptional.
