Last night when I finished working on MyLot I had 101 posts. I had a star and everything. Today when I signed on I only had 99, and my star was gone. What happened? I'm new, and I didn't know you could go backward. Has this happened to you?

You had a star because you had 101 posts which is more than 100 posts. You only get a star if you have atleast 100 posts, and since now you have less than 100, that is why you have lost your star. You had probably lost 2 or 3 posts because you have replied to a discussion that is against the rules and that discussion got deleted, which means your posts got deleted aswell.

That makes perfect sense. That makes me curious as to which discussions I responded to that were against the rules. Yikes. If you reply to a discussion that is against the rules, does that count against you in any way?

I lost a few points myself today, and I was really trying to reach a goal of 300, but I kept going from 298-301 and back down! I think I'm up there again, but don't worry, it fluctuates as the day goes. Just try to only post to discussions that are legt and not just about mylot earnigns and stuff because they get removed quickly these days!

AAhhh, I was wondering what I had responded to that was against the rules and deleted. I think I have responded to some that are about mylot earnings. Man, I hope this discussion wasn't against the rules. Do they notify you if they delete your discussion? Just wondering. Do you get in any kind of trouble (suspension) or anything like that?

I really do not understand the star ratings yet (obviously). But I think the number in the star has something to do with how the other members have rated your comments. Anyone reading this, please correct me if I am wrong.... Thanks, Cooiky, for commenting on my discussion!

Most likely it was due to some of the discussions you had responded to getting deleted, most likely for violating one (or more) of mylot's guidelines. Yes, it has happened to me more than once. Nothing I can really do about it but continue to post. Don't let this discourage you from participating on here though. Happy mylotting!

2 of your posts were either deleted or an entire discussion or 2 discussions were deleted along with your posts. You don't get a star until you hit 100. It'll come back, don't worry. Blessings.
