What are the stars behind a person's name. I have seen some with a 6, 7 or even a 9 in it. how can you earn these stars. I also read, that it is something with a trusting percentage??

Is it a must? rating the discussions with a + or -? Or is it just an extra??

Users with a user rating of less than 100 will not yet have myLot reputation calculated, and will therefore have no star next to their name. myLot reputation updates once per day, so most users should see their reputation appear shortly after reaching a user rating of 100. Remember, myLot reputation is determined by the myLot community, and it is cumulative for all user contributions. Therefore, myLot reputation can fluctuate even without a user participating on any given day. In addition, you shouldn’t think of a particular myLot reputation level as necessarily being “good” or “bad”. It just means that a user with a reputation of 8 is generally more highly thought of by the myLot community than a user with a reputation of 5, and so on and so forth. It doesn’t mean that 8 stars means “good user” and 5 stars means “bad user”. Both are valuable members of the myLot community. As you might have guessed, the best way to increase your reputation is by contributing quality topics, responses and comments and avoid posting low-quality content or items that violate the myLot community guidelines. HOPE ITS HELP....!!! Have a nice day!

Those are nothing but the reputation star. It starts from 1 and ends in 10. A person will be provided with a star when he reaches 100 points. After reaching 100, depending upon the quality of post made by you and depending upon ur activeness, you will be awarded a star and it might increase in future. I was awarded with 6 star after reaching 100 and now I got a eight star!

This number inside a star shows the reputation of a user on this site . Basically it is alloted by Mylot staff and determined by quality of our posts . It is given after we reach 100 points on this site . The points or rating is given in brackets after our user name . It is 9 at present for you . pls see more about this user reputation system at a discussion started by Mylot administrating staff here : http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/573319.aspx
