They increase all the time? Are they the # of discussions your start? or responses? or something else?
3 responses

The number in parenthesis's are our scores of how many discussions we responded to. The stars are our ratings based on what other mylotters say about us.

That's a really a very good question for a newbie like you, megumiart. The number beside your name that increases all the time is basically the number of times you've responded to or participated in a particular discussion here on myLot. So, in response to your question, such a number essentially represents all the responses you've ever made in all the myLot discussions you've decided to actually participate in. I really hope that my response could truly be of help in fully clarifying things for you. Happy myLotting and more power!

I believe they are the number of total posts, whether new discussions or responses.
