Yeah, mine either. I think a guy told me you needed like 100 comments to get a star. And then people rank your responses to earn a reputation from 1 to 10. If you'll notice, most of the people in the political spectrum have low rankings based on their political affiliation. So I wouldn't worry about getting ranked if I were you. It seems a lot of people don't vote for or against based on what you say - just on where you stand. The popularity system may help you earn more money, though. I'm not sure about that. Regardless, a veteran member can tell you more about it than I can. :-) GL.

This might be the level of you, which reflexes your participations directly. The more you take part in the dicuss, the more your score will be. So you know that now?

You'll get your star when you reach post No. 100. As for the number within the star, it's dependent upon the "+" or "-" you get from others rating you. The more the "+", the higher the number. The more "-" means the number will go down. Each numbered star has a different colour - 10(Blue), 9(Red), etc. Even after you've reached 100th post, your number can still fluctuate depending on your "+" & "-" ratings received. When I 1st hit 100th post, I think I only got a green star with 5 or 6, then I was a bit more active for awhile so I got a 10 but now I'm back to 9, haha

Hello sdwfstone! You still have to reach 100 posts before having a ranking here. As for now, I can see that you have 60 posts so you need to have 40 posts to have a star above your username.
