I was just reading about these stars in the Mylot Alerts. These stars are given to the participants only once they have accumulated 100 points and above. That is the score shown immidiately after the user's name.Then the number inside the star indicates about the quality of the discussion posted by the participant and this has nothing to do with the score. That means a person with score 1000 may have a star with 4 or 5 and a peron with 102 may have star with 10. This suggests that the first person is participating actively in the discussions but his discussions are not quality ones as per Mylot people when compared to the latter who participated not as frequently as the former but his discussions are quality ones.But then Mylot people don't have any discremination bteween the two persons, as both of them are equally important for them, thats what the Alert says. By saying quality discussions, I think, we should discuss the relevent discussion, with some new or added information to the existing topic, we should adher to the proper grammer and I further feel that we should be careful in punctuations and spellings. These points are just wild guess of mine! No body told me or I have read these things some where! Hope you must be clear now, what are these stars with numbers! Wish you all the best and waiting for your next response!
