Congratulations for your 100th post. I have actually asked the same thing before, though, I'm not yet on my 100th, I was just asking how to get one though. This is what I got from the other mylot users: You would automatically get a star right beside your name on your 100th post. It could actually be a reward also for continuously posting. Now, the number inside the star if actuall how your postings were rated by the mylot users. Number 6 in your star is a good start. You can work your way up to 10. Mylot users actually rate your responses. You will see the (+) (-) signs beside each posting and that's where you can also rate others. Keep it up and hope to see you increase your number in your star.

Star readings are given around the hundred post mark. It is usually the same day that you hit 100 post. Your rating is dependent upon the quality and intelligence of your post. Short post answers that do not give a lot of detail result in a lower rating then post that take a good deal of thought. The reality is that the quality of your posts is that key to being successful here. The misconception that the number of posts increases your earnings is one that scars the reputation of this WebSite. You need to be focused on providing interesting quality discussion to receive the highest ratings and maximize your earnings. This reality is hard for many people to grasp until they experience the drop in earnings when they only are concerned with number of posts

Good job, djmarion! It is the rating of you base on your first 100 posts, once you have reached 100 posts, mylot will give you a rating base on your first 100 posts, which 10 is the hightest rating. Good luck. =)
