I just noticed today when I went into MyLot, that I now have a red star with a number 9 in it. I guess I've earned it with posting, but I'd like to know why. Can someone please explain it to me?

It means your mylot reputation. It can either stay, increase or decrease when someone mark you + or -. I don't know if it has anything to with earnings but anyway if it goes down and you don't break the rules, don't lose sleep over it. Keep posting, the star will go back up in time.

it seems when people give us a + it affects our stars , so the more +'s we get the higher our stars , I like to give everyone who takes time to answer my discussions a + as I think it is a nice way to say thanks , well done you , xx

Like you, I rate most peoples responses with a +, if only to show my thanks for them taking the time to answer my discussions. I didn't know it affected our star rating though. Thanks weemam.

Thanks for the congratulations, and now I understand what the star means. All my hard work is starting to pay off! I have uploaded photos now and again on my own discussions, and got the extra for it. I joined this site initially to earn some extra cash, but I find that I am enjoying more meeting new people and making new friends - the earnings side of it is just a bonus! Thanks again for your response.
