My highest was about 120-something I think. Though I do also sometimes have discussions that get less than 10. For me it usually depends on the topic. For example, the discussion that got over 120 responses was about "Choosing to have an only child". It got a lot of responses both because it's an issue a lot of people feel strongly about, and because almost anyone can relate to it. Either because they have kids, or because they have opinions based off their own childhood experiences with either having or not having siblings. My discussions that get fewer responses are usually on topics fewer people can relate to. I have kind of obscure interests. For example, while anime is popular, if I make a post about a less popular series, I might only get a couple of responses. Also if I'm posting about a fairly rare health condition I have, I'll only find a couple of people that also have that, so I won't get many responses. In my case, I don't mind if sometimes a discussion flops as long as I get a response or two that is useful to me, or interesting. I'm usually aware of when I'm posting something that isn't going to be very popular, and if I choose to post it anyway, I know better than to be disappointed in the responses. The other big thing that might be an issue for you, since I notice you only have 64 posts even though you've been here almost as long as I have, is simply that you're not that active. If you have a lot of friends and have been active for a while, often people will respond to your topics even if the topic isn't something that would normally interest the person. I've had friends drop by my discussions that were about things they didn't even know anything about, and ask questions, just because it was a way of getting to know me and the things I am interested in better.

I think not having many friends here could be the big thing holding you back, since a lot of people check their friends' discussions out first. The star ratings are part of the discussion rating system (DRS). In the mylot faqs, there is one specifically on the rating system and it says: "The DRS is factored into our proprietary earnings algorithm, so this will help us properly reward valuable contributions to the myLot community." So, yes, if you have a higher rating in your star, you will make more money, according to the mylot FAQ. Those new level things are "interest rankings". Basically it's just an additional rating that you get for each interest category, and it lets you know both how much you post in that category and how positively others rate you in that category. Level 16 is the highest I've seen on those. Mylot hasn't stated if they affect your earnings, as far as I know. I don't think I know everything about mylot, but I have learned a lot in the time I've been here. Carefully choosing what interests to post things under helps you get more responses, as does writing quality discussions, and making lots of friends. :)
