Yesterday, my star sign at my avatar is 9 and today when login I found that my star sign drop to 8. This mean somebody here rate my discussion as -, and yet I'm not making any new post yesterday. I'm not gonna try to please everybody, cause it's impossible. But it's still surprising to know, even if you trying to be nice in all of your post, there's still somebody who just don't like it. Is star rating important to you ? Did any of you experienced this drop of star ? How to get my star up again ?

Well like what I always say...For you it might be okay, but for others its not. We come from different places and we all have different views...so you might think that your not offending anyone, but for the other person...its somewhat offensive. Yeah, it has happened to me as well. I use to be a 10 then I drop to an 8 then back to a 9. lol. I don't really give that much attention to the star rating. I'm enjoying myself here...that's what matters.

You are still new to this website. Now, the star rating is based on your average performance. It is not always true that your star rating will go down if someone rate you negative. It is also based on aggregate total (+) you get from users. if you get below that average number, your star will also go down. Since you are new any inactive day or a very active day can make drastic change to your star rating. Keep on posting and you will see that your star would go to 9 very soon. My star is hovering around 8 and 9 ever second day!

Oh thanks for informing that Sanuanu. I never realize that it got something to do with our activity in mylot. I think it's only about getting + or - rating from other member. Well if that the case, I'm not to bothered by it's drop. BTW I'm inactive for one day when I'm losing the star.

I don't know if this is the best reason for making a rating drop or gain in the rating. It is my speculation. Once you will be old here you would harldy loose any star because your average would be steady and difficult to get reduced!

This happened to me recently too! I was at a 9 for several months. I'd been working so hard to get a 10. Then one day I dropped down to an 8! I was so upset! But it wasn't long before I was back at a 9 again! Now I'm back to trying for that 10 again!

Hope our star are up again soon Trickiwoo, but like other myloters advices, that's only some kind of a bonus. The important is we enjoy our present here :)

I remember I had a 9, a couple of days after it dropped back to an 8. Don't worry about pleasing other people, just be yourself and express your own opinions, not what others want to hear! Don't worry about the star much, I used to, but now I don't care. Can't please everyone like you said, so be yourself!
