How do you get a star?

I've been posting for a while now (well 50) and I was just wondering how do you get a star. Do they go by how many you've posted or how long you've been a member or what?

You automatically get a star at 100 points unless of course everyone hates you then you dont get one. Believe or not there are some very nasty people here who do not get a star.

Oh wow I did not know you get a star every 100 points! I used to think you got it from ratings. Well thank you for the info. Keep up the good work and make lots of money.

Not at EVERY 100 points. You'll get your one and only star at 100 points and from then on it will change color and the number in the middle of the star will change. Either up or down which is a result of your ratings by other members.

Your response was informative too. You get ONE star and it's the number and color that changes. Why doesn't Mylot explain that or did I just miss something? Thanks.

Welcome to myLot vonsmom. You will get your star when you reach your 100 response. The color of the star is determined by other myLotters. The better your responses and discussions are the more positive ratings you will get. You do see the + - ! at the side those are the ratings. The ! is for reporting real abuse and cheaters when you see and catch them. Cheaters are those that copy and paste someone elses discussions or responses verbatume.

Another informative response. Thanks, I didn't know that about the +, - and !. I will start to use these to rate other people and I hope other people give me good ratings.

I'm sure that others will give you a plus rateing as long as you are posting more than 2 line and do good quality responses and start good discussions. It looks to me like you are doing a good job.

Hi vonsmom1994! :) Congratulation on reaching 50 posts! :) You will get your star once you reach your 100th post (I just received mine last night. *Yipeee*) Hehe... You get the star NOT on how long you've been a member, but upon reaching your 100th post. I've just been a memeber 5 days ago, and I got my star when I reached my 100th post. Oh! For more info, you can also visit myLot FAQs. Here's the link: http://www.mylot.com/o/faq.aspx Feel free to send me a message if you still got questions. Take care and God bless (",)

You got 100 posts and you've only been a member for 5 days? Wow! You must be up all night posting without stopping to sleep or eat (just kidding). Thanks for your response.

Hi vonsmom1994! :) You're very much welcome! I do get sleep and eat. LOL :p Posting means your response to your friends' or any myLot users' discussions. :) I was just lucky because my friends here in myLot posted interesting discussions and most of their discussions are really on my interest, so I'm able to leave my "footprints" there. Best of luck! :) God bless! (",)

I do not know how I got my star. All I know is one day I posted up on this site and the next day I has my 9 star. I got it all of a sudden. I really like my 9 star it's pretty cool.

when you reach a hundred you get your star. the color and number of your star goes off how people have been rating you. you are half way there to your star so keep up the great work. also when you reach 500 you are able to copy and paste. that comes in handy with links. some take advantage of it though. dont worry your star will show up soon. i hope you get a good number as well. just rmeber to post and care in what you are writting about and people will rate you good and your star will have a big fat 10 in it.

Thanks for the info. I was wondering about the copy and pasting too. Every time I try to copy and paste an error message comes up.

the same question in mind during my first days here on mylot. i saw people with stars before their names and i wondered how they got them. at first i thought they were counts of replies that were chosen as best response but i was wrong.

hi there!! welcome to mylot. when i was new here, i often wondered how people got a star beside their names, with numbers inside it. and i found out that when you reach 100posts you'l have it with a number inside it, which means your reputation here. i was so happy when i got mine. soon enough you'l get yours too, just halfway to your 100th post. keep on posting and enjoy!! happy posting!!

it applies to how many posts you put and the quality of your writing i think, maybe how long you go on everyday as well.

best of luck - best of luck for you to get star
Well, you will get start after you make 100 posts. Seems are not so far from your 100th posts. You won't even notice when you are getting to 100 posts. And after getting a star beside your name you will know it that you have done it. Ohk friend, good luck ahead. Hope you will make it soon.
