The number in the braces next to your username is your your rating in mylot. This number increases as you keep working by sending responses and starting some discussions of your own. The number will grow by one if your reply is in a detailed manner and not if you write a short response as such. when start a discussion of your own you need to recieve a response from some body with a +'ve rating marked positively by that responding user and the nuber grows by one. As soon as you reach a milestone of 100 (this rating number) a star will be displayed in your crown I mean just above your username with an integer number displayed inside the star. When you move your cursor/mouse over to this number in the star would further display your reputation percentage in the mylot community. The number inside the star doesn't exactly mean any hting like good or bad user as such. It's just an admiration by so many users who read you so many where and marked you +'ve because of your nice and quality writing. I think you are very much clear about both the numbers arround the username one is two and the second will appear after you complete 100 points in the braces. Once you complete 500 rating you have a power of copy paste tool to use while you respond or start discussions which further can enhance your sppeed of working and the earnings there by. Wishing you a great pleasure and enjoyment under mylot discussions and the good earning too.

You must also rate others +'ve or -'ve whichever you feel precise as far as possible. When you think the response being really best you are supposed to mark it as a "best reponse too. By attending your discussion in such a disciplined manner would attract so many users to your discussions started in future. If you will go starting the discussions and not adding comments if required and don't care to resolve the discussions the sincere users feel about it. So I request you to mark the ratings + or - as far as possible authortatively. I would like to request you a last thing as do read every thing about mylot through this link or a command pop-up located in the top-right-corner of every page as "mylot" see the header line please. or the link is.... http://www.mylot.com/o/mylot.aspx wish you all the best.

its the number posts you have made. It is useful to keep you track on how frequent do you use mylot in posting discussions as well as replies to other user's discussion.

I believe that it is how many posts you have posted. Either that or how many discussions you have posted in. I would lean towards the former to most likely being true however.
