I got a star!

March 16, 2007 5:01am CST
Hooray I made 100 posts! However I am a little dissappointed that I only have a star of 7. And 70/100. I feel that I have posted replies well and meaningful. Compared to some I have read, who have much higher ratings! Can anyone explain why this is as I can't seem to find anything to explain this in the rules. From what I have read I should have a higher rating. But I am pleased to have reached 100 posts!

Hey ya know, I am right there with ya! I am a person that responds with high quality responses. I rarely give less than 4 sentences. And I often have more than one paragraph as a response. I wish the star reputation was based on our quality of responses. But it seems to truly be based on popularity or like opinions with those that are rating the response. That is...if a person does not agree with you, then they often rate that person as a negative. Not that the person had a poor response...it is just that they did not agree so that person rates negatively. These "+" and "-" on the side of a response is what controls one's star reputation. Sad...but true. And yes, I started out with a 100/100 when they first started this star rep thing...but since then, some people have not agreed with me and felt that they needed to rate me poorly. I do try my best to get along with others. I am not an argumentative person. But...we are not all the same. Congrats on your newly acquired star. :) Try not to disagree if you want your star rep to rise. LOL

Thank you for your kind advice. It seems a shame though that people would grade you a minus if you disagree with them. To me that defeats the object of having a discussion!

Don't be disappointed. You have made a good shot of 100. Anyhow, after having the star one ever keeps a look into the rating given to the star. It really means to keep you a watch of what sort of contributions you are posting. Well, 70/100 is if you feel not good, I would wish you to have 100/100 with a blue star of 10. ;) Good Luck.

I was two and in some hours I became 5. It also happened with me. I guess here there is alot of crappy stuff and people dont like meaningful things that much. Secondly, people like longer longer posts =(

Congratulations! You have done better than me coz I obtained only a pink star with no 6 when I achieve my 100th post. But after putting more effort in, my star come to be 8 now. To be happy in mylot, I think we shall forget the rating and do our best contributing to the community of mylot by posting more quality responses and discussions. With the positive rating of members on our quality posting, sooner or later we will achieve the highest ranking of mylot to have a blue star of number 10. Wish you good luck and see you at the top.
