Purplehaze, welcome to myLot. I hope you spend many happy hours here. MyLot is constantly inmproving this forum. We have seen a number of improvements lately. The star rating is one of the newest innovations. It is a personal rating gained for quality discussions, responses and comments. Only myLot knows exactly how we are rated. As yet, you haven't qualified, so you don't have a star. If you continue to post quality responses - not just one or two words - but add intelligent comments to discussions, you will soon gain a star with a 1. The rating increases until you gain a 10. I am sure you will find myLot's own description of the rating system in their guidelines or FAQs.

brielevan, a star rating does not increase your earnings. Your star rating reflects QUALITY not QUANTITY. Personally, I don't see a great benefit of a star rating, but it does give a general idea of who the more serious myLotters are. Those who give short, non-applicable responses might gain a number of points, but won't achieve a high star rating. If you are interested in quality discussions, these are more likely (but not necessarily) to be found on discussions by higher star ratings.

10 means you have a high rank because of posting quality discussions etc.

10 is the best you can get, down to 1. You do not have enough of a rate to score yet. It is what your fellow friends on MyLot have rated your posts and responses. You don't do anything. It will appear when MyLot allows it.

After reaching 100 postings here you will also receive star rating by Mylot. This is the rating of our quality postings on friends topics. It is from 1 to 10 scale. It may change if you start improving quality postings. You may go down also if your posting quality deteriorates. 10 is the highest marking here.
