Could anyone out there please tell me why my star rating decreased? It was nine in the las few minutes. Immediately i responde to a discussion on blog, my rating decreased by 1. Are my discussion getting below standard or it is normal? I expect it to icrease rather.

So far my rating has stayed the same, it could be that responding could lower your star rating temporarily, until the system sorts everything out, It could just be that Mylot server is running slow, especially if there are a lot of people on the site, According to MyLot it is a new Algorithm which is running, this in itself could slow down the site, and take longer to update the star ratings.

This has also happened to me, i was a nine and then a couple of days ago it dropped to an eight. It seems to depend on how many plus or negative ratings you get in your discussions, so you, like me, must have upset someone with what you typed lol i think some people on mylot have had a sense of humour by-pass and take themselves far too seriously, but you cant legislate to take account of the simple minded, can you?
