YES! It does affect the earnings. If a person gives a discussion or reply a good rating (that's the + sign at the top right corner of the post) the person who wrote that discussion will get a little "extra" in their earnings. If a person gives a discussion or reply a bad rating (That's the - sign on the right top corner) then the person who wrote that discussion won't get that extra money and also his reputation might go down.

No, I don't think the person who made the rating is affected. In fact, I don't think there's a way to find out who rated who. Probably safer that way. Couple more things that affect earnings: the Best Response: When you choose a Best Response out of the responses in your discussions, a little extra money goes to the person who wrote that response. But you should only choose a Best Response if you truly believe that was the best response. Also, tags might affect your earnings. You should add tags that are relevant to your discussion or response.
