I have gone down to a 9

@weemam (13377)
April 9, 2007 8:54am CST
I came online this morning and I had gone down to a 9 star , I know this happens but I thought it was because we had argued with someone ( am I wrong here) , yesterday I was so pleased because I was on top discussions and hot topics at the same time , I have been on both before but not at the same time that I know of , I have never upset anyone that I am aware of ,this is not my style , I just wondered if anyone could throw any light on this for me, I know I am being a bit daft , I do long responses , I read , rate and answer all of my responses and I am on here for hours a day ( yes I am addicted lol ) but being downgraded has made me a bit sad xx

I have looked at the properties on your star and it seems you are now rated 95/100, which doesn't make sense I thought it were in the 90s you were a ten star?! Don't worry my friend, you'll soon be back at 10 again, either it's a gremlin in the works or you're friends will rally around again to make sure you have a nice blue star again x

My lot admin got back to me pal quick as usuall so I should be back again soon hopefully Your star rating has nothing to do with the myLot staff, your rating relies soley on the users of myLot. If your number went down you may have received a few negative ratings on your discussions/responses. This will happen from time to time and it does not affect your earnings. myLot Staff

From what I've seen it looks like you need at least a 94/100 or a 95/100 to have a 10 start -- it's like in school where the grading curve is high. :o)

Someone just rated you a -. Well probably more than one person, I would imagine it takes more than one negative rating to affect a star rating. So maybe some people didn't agree with your posts and rated you badly. They arent supposed to do it, but we all know they do, and it happens. You'll just have to ignore the members that attack your rating for no reason and keep making good comments and posts! It will be a 10 before you know it, don't worry!

Well see that is the good thing about MyLot now, your rating won't go down, if someone gives a bad rating because they disagree with you. Now the person who gave the bad rating, their score will be affected. The rating will only go down, if it is because someone made no real attempt at providing a response.

Wee,I can understand you being sad..I would be to and it would hurt my feelings..I'm so sorry that you have had this happen..I do not understand this Weemam,Your discussions and responses are always good...I have never given you anything but++++++++s..... Have you checked your discussions/responses/comments to see if there might be some disgruntled person? Yesterday you were a blue so something drastic happened.. I would ask the mylot staff to check it out...Maybe it's a glitch or something.. I'm sure it's not right I don't care if you went to a 1/100 with whatever color that is you would still be a blue to me Honey..Love ya Sweets..keep yer chin up..

Hugs - Big Hugs for You
( hugs ) Don't let it get you down hun, you were top and hot so there are obviously some jealous people out there. It is only a number in cyberspace, and with the quality of your discussions, it is only likely to be very temporary.

Oh my friend, I always gave you a lot of pluses whenever I see your beautiful pink butterfly. In fact, I just rated you + a while ago on one of my thread. Might be someone rated you negative yesterday. I also went down to 9 before so I know what you're feeling. Don't worry, you have a lot of friends here. You'll have your 10 star rating again in no time.

Hi weemam. I can understand why you feel sad too. I truly enjoy your discussions etc., and look forward to them, as so many of them make me smile, spark a memory for me etc. myLot is an interesting and fun place, and there are so many kind, wonderful people on here, I've found, even as a newbie. Keep up the good work, and keep smiling too ... as I'm sure you will.

Your star rating points are currently at 95/100. From 96 and above it should be a ten again. You will quickly get that point back. You haven´t done anything wrong, in fact I´ve seen some people on here who start good discussions and give quality answers and they´ve only got an eight star. It must have been someone who´s given you a minus rating. It´s happened to other good, valuable members here, nothing much we can do about it, I´m afraid. Some people will use the minus rating wisely and others don´t. Don´t give it too much thought. You´ll soon have your tenner back. Don´t worry, you´re doing a good job here. Keep up the good work.

I think someone may have rated you -. It's strange because quite a few of the top rating members have been saying that their stars are dropping recently. It's almost as though someone has a vendetta against those of us with top ratings which is really kind of sad and rather pathetic. Knowing you as I do and the kind of discussions you do, I'm certain that you'll be back up on top in no time at all. Just to help you along the way, I've rated you + :o)

I think 96 and above is a 10, kind of like a grade point average in the US. It may mean that someone has forgotten to rate your discussions. It will go back up. I do not think it is necessarily someone rating you - or being unhappy with you. We will just have to give you lots of plusses so that it does go right back.

Aww wee honey, don't worry...I think all of go through this phase and until I went through it myself I didn't realize how it felt. Trust me you will be back up to a 10 soon, and here's a couple of plusses from me to make you bounce right back! I'm sure other friends will support you too so don't let the 9 bother you, before long you will be back on a 10. :)

ohhhhh when your star drops it makes you feel bad, i know this only too well. My star dropped from an 9 to an 8 for a week because some vindictive individual decided to follow me around making negative ratings to my discussions and responses. Its petty but some individuals get their kicks this way. You dont have to have an argument to get the negative ratings fairy to pay you a visit. It happens to us all every once in a while you just have to keep on posting and making sure you keep doing what you are doing, we all know the quality of your contribution to the site. Please dont be down, it is not you with the problem, it is them. blessed be

Thanks for sharing that response. Yes, we will be sure to rate you +. I find it interesting that it does not affect our earnings. Other than hurting our feelings, or boosting our egoe, why is it any good?

I am brand new to MyLot and still getting an understanding of the rating system and the stars. I can tell you honestly that I enjoy your discussions and look forward to reading them. Your replies are always on target too, not just "great" or "thanks". Not trying to butter you up, I hope you know, just telling you the truth! I still haven't given a negative to anyone although as I read in the FAQs I think there have been a few replies that should have gotten one. Waiting a bit until I learn the ropes better. I'm sure with your upbeat attitude you'll be moving on up very soon!

Weemam I really do not understand why you have gone down but I do know as I have heard it from a lot of People now that there are some Members on here down rating the good People for no reason as I am waiting for it to happen to me to. I do not know what these Members are hoping to achieve apart from upsetting lovely People and possibly ruining a good Site. I am so sorry this has happened and of course I will carry on rating you to help you get it back I really do not know what else to say my lovely Friend. I know sooner or later I will be hit by it to and so will many more good Members Love and a big Hug to you xxx

I wouldnt take it so bad. Being a 9 is not so bad. They just do that to make you try harder here thats what I think. I dont even care about the stars I think they are unjust anyway. So cheer up its not the end of the world.

I think if people had a concrete reason for the downgrading, members wouldn't feel so bad about it. To have been downgraded without a solid reason, leaves posters wondering why. This is the second message I have seen today on this topic. Unfortunately, you may never knwo the reason for it.
