Our reputation is how other users rate us. Personally I used to be a 10 and dropped down to 9 for reasons I am not aware of. I've been stuck here for a few weeks now and no matter how I try my best to regain my 10 by posting quality and well thought of responses, nothing seems to happen. Mylot assures us that there is no way for rogue users to beat the system so I just trust they know what's going on. I just continue to do my best and hopefully I will get back my 10, if not, then there's nothing I can do.

ohh, that's also bad.. you know i just wonder, maybe there are members who rate us not accordingly to how we respond but how they feel for it. there maybe some who are envy for where we are now, so they are trying to destroy our reputation. ooo ooh, am i thinking too much? i'm sorry for that. i just really feel sad for myself. but this time, i will do my part as a member of this site, i will give my best response to other's discussions. it's up to them how they will rate me. thank you for your advise.

Reputation - Reputation - Humourous picture.
This pretty much happens for one reason and one reason only - people rating you negatively for posts they thought were'nt of a good enough quality, or because your posts were too short. But some people do go around and stupidly give out negative ratings to good people, which would most likely be what has happened in your case. Their ratings won't affect you much after they have rated you before, but it will depend on different people with different accounts and how THEY rate you. One person or a couple of silly people cannot majorly affect your reputation.

if that is the case, i hope those people realize what they do to other members. it really makes me feel sad cause i've been doing everything just to satisfy discussions where i am in, i always give the best of me, every time i respond to them. anyway, thank you for that information and for being here.

YA I have faced this too. you can see my rating, its 7 now. I was on 9. I have come to know that this happens coz of many reasons. One of them is wen we are not responding to discussions regularly or some one has rated u negatively.

that's too bad for us, our reputation goes down. i don't stop responding to discussions... so does it mean someone rated us negative? ohh my.. why do they do that? i didn't say anything wrong with other members. i hope it will not happen again. it was really sad for us who have been rated negatively. thanks for your information my dear friend.

Unfortunately some members abuse the rating system, the negative isn't to be used when some one disagrees with your discussion or response. It's suppose to be used for when people aren't putting quality into their responses or discussions or they left a response that had nothing to do with he discussion. I hope that your star rises quickly however it seems that it takes much longer for it to rise than it does for it to fall. Continue to post quality discussions and responses and people will continue to rate you positively and it will rise again. I'm giving you a plus towards that now. :)

You are actually already in my friends list and that is why I was able to reply so quickly as your discussions go straight to my email and I respond from there. :) I know that it's very disheartening to have your star fall, but it will rise again and with your friends coming in and rating you with positives, it shouldn't take to long, it unfortunately doesn't seem to happen over night! :)

I had a rating of nine when I crossed 100 but because a user decided to abuse the rating system after he didn't like what I had to say he took my rating to a 3 within hours. I certainly have advised mylot of this and they say they have told him to stop such behavior but I still have my very low rating. It never crossed my mind that a single user could go back through my discussions and send my rating into such a downward spiral. Lesson learned - don't tell people when they are abusing the system as they are likely to retaliate. If you have any empathy for my situation please rate this discussion and help me have a rating that accurately reflects my discussions and responses.

I'm sorry you're dealing with that as it is unfortunate. I wonder if this also has to do with how much you're payed. Does anyone know? I'm sorry I can't give you any information about it but that's because I just signed up here about an hour ago.
