How to keep the star beside the name higher ??

Did you notice that there's a star beside our name when we post a comment? Well, I just noticed it around 2-3days ago. I really like it and I feel so cool to see my star has a high number. But then today I just found out that my point was dropping from 93 to 90. The star number still 9 though, but I wonder if there's a way to keep it constant or make it higher? Anyone has idea about this?

You only just noticed it? Everyone is bothered about it and after the earnings I guess it's the next thing that most look at - and then come the discussions. Seriously though, as Lamb said, there is nothing we can do about it except for staying within the uidelines and being pleasant. We can rate others and hope that they will do unto us as we do to them. You can read more about the rating system here and bear in mind that we can rate each user for a total of 11 times in each 24 hour period. : http://www.mylot.com/o/faq/faq17.aspx

heehee yes, I just noticed it. Hmmm I think it'll be more fun for me to keep the rate of my star than earning. by the link you posted i see clearly now. Thanks to you mysdianait.

I'm not bothered by it anymore. Ever since I lost my favorite blue colored star I still check it from time to time though

Best not to be bothered about it because it has a will of its own anyway. Worrying about it is not going to make it get better or worse - just like the weather

just response and positive rating. and of course, a best response will make a difference. just like me, i didn't know the exact multiplication, addition or whatever it is. just hope for the best response. and be polite, ALL THE TIME. and just give positive rating to everyone. (+) cheers!

It is just like lamb said that you really can't do anything yourself. If users feel your posts are acceptable then will get positives, but if they don't like your posts, then you get negatives. I really wouldn't worry about it to much though. Mine goes up and down like a youo at times, but I am not concerned about it as I am doing the best I can. The thing of it is, there are users that will rate you negative for disagreeing with them, and that is unfair, but it does happen. You just keep posting and hope for the best, as that is all you can do. It will go up in in time but if it doesn't then just consider yrouself lucky you have the red star. There are some users where their star never goes up and they don't worry about it. Just hang in here. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

I don't mind if they will rate me negative if my ideas against them or they disagree with me. I don't see it fair or not but I feel more excited instead. Like how I can keep my rate high at the same time being myself. I dont mind if someone will rate me negative in their disagree expression. This world might lack of taste if everyone thinks all the same,right?

I actually don't even really think about my star rating. It's just something that I really don't pay attention to. However, there is no way that you can personally change your rating here. The rating is based on the way that other people perceive your discussions and responses. That said, the best way to insure that you are going to have a decent star rating is to make sure that you always post with quality in mind.

Hello Hubfee, I dont let it bother me. I do the best I can. I speak my mind and try to help whenever possible to the best of my knowledge. We cant all think alike and of course it will happen that you will brush someone the wrong way. Personally, Id rather know if I offend someone. If they rate me low, then I wont know what I did because we dont know who is rating us. So I enjoy my star, knowing that I did some good. Enjoy Mylotting

I get your point. that's what I think too but to have a nice star, it's like getting some score for movating me that's why. Like playing game and get good score. But for mylot we earn knowledge too..^^ h
