MyLot recalculate things periodically. You will probably notice that your earnings have dropped a few cents too (it varies from person to person). Several people have noticed a difference today, so one assumes that they ran the calculation program again to tidy up after the big crash. The 'star' value (MyLot Reputation) and the earnings algorithm are both affected by the Discussion Rating System, so a lower star value may also mean lower earnings. Read all about it in the FAQs under 'Earnings', 'Discussion Rating System' and 'User Rating and MyLot reputation'.

My rating dropped yesterday as well and I'm not sure why. I haven't really posted anything that would have offended anyone or would have caused them to give me negative ratings so it doesn't really make any sense to me either. I don't know whether or not it really affects us having a lower rating but it might. You can get your rating back up though by giving good posts to people and trying to give positive ratings.
