I'm getting so frustrated my star rating was up to 91 and now everyday its been going down for the last three days and now its at 85. I wonder why this is happening. Any clues mylot friends. I'm writing from my experiences and opinions and not being mean or nasty. Plus I'm responding to most with 4 or more lines.

I had heard something about people who go around and rate everyone poorly. I don't have a lot of information on it, I'm new here and I don't even know anything about ratings. All I know is that someone was saying something about this my first day on here. Hope this helps.

I am sorry to hear that your rating has gone down. It does happen in here, especially if you say something that others don't agree with, so you will get rated negative. It is right and it is against the rules, but users don't care. They don't realize that by rating others negative, it also affects their ratings. Maybe they should be rated a negative too, so they can see how it fels. You could havdee also responded to a controversial topic and those will definitely cause your ratings to fall. I avoid those topics like the plague. Just keep doing what you have been doing, and your ratings will go back up. Admin is planning on implementing changes to the ratings system, to things should be better when they do. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

You see that is why I stay away from politics because I know that will get people upset. I will be happy when they change the ratings system. Thank you so much for the info and have a great day!

Hi lelin, I had a very brief period of stardom wiyth a 10 at the beginning. One day the star went down to 9 and it has stayed that way no matter what I do. I am given best answers, I post nice pictures, I greet nicely . As a whole, I wouldn´t call myself a bad person. But on the other hand, a 9 is second to best. So, let´s enjoy what we have. I suppose that if you were mean or nasty you would be a 4 or 3. Take care.

It happens to most everyone here someone is rating you negatively some here call these persons who do such deeds " Mylot Trolls"...There's not much that can be done except keep on responding to discussions and hoping that they rate you with a plus sign.

Hi lelin, I lost my 10 star by 8 points overnight which could have had something to do with going into religion, so now I've removed that one from my interests which is difficult as there are some interesting things in there. It's just not worth it though, one guy who was expressing his views which didn't fit with the majority view was told to get out of that interest or his star would be attacked. Very commedable behaviour from those good religious types.

That is crazy. Well I have found the more religious a person is the more hypocritcal they are. They will be the first to stab you in the back. I know this from experience. I'm staying away from politics for awhile and see what happens. I just can't believe people behave like this on a site like this. Its for fun not to get angry or rude to anyone. Thank you for responding and have a great evening.
