You think? I notice I just went to post at this one topic, they want to know who is the best Tennis player, I guess that would be called a Rank. They have 1 rank for them 2 other people replied they have no ranking at all, what is up with that? I s Mylot playing a game with us? Do you think that Mylot is trying to imtimidate us with this New Ranking Systems?

I think they are definitely using it to their advantage not ours. I was a little controversial the other day (but still polite) and I lost 3 star points overnight. While I could really care the number on my star, when I see that 4 I think, he must be someone you can't trust I would think. My guess is that controversy is not as profitable for my lot as pc, light discussions like what's your favorite color. I wish they could maybe have two forums. My Lot Lite and My Lot Real or something. People should be allowed to disagree politely about something. I don't understand it at all.

You are just staring out I am surprised you got a star rating already, but look at you Rank 1 that is suppose to be the highest. from what I gathered.

I think at 100 they give out the star, but from what I hear 4 means I only rank 40 our of 100, plus I hate the color purple so its a double whammy for me.

It won't but I still would like to know the purpose, the stars was enough. Now they have come up with this and it stinks.

With the star system.. maybe so. I mean look at ME. I've been put through the mud for the crime of free speech, having an opinion, being expressive with interests and helping people with their problems (yes, I'm mostly convinced all of these are crimes now. -_-) With the level interest system, there's a game there too. People who haven't been on in months have top billing for some interests, meanwhile people who are more current and are at present active in an interest have little or now interest ranking. Some members though can see who is good at what and when discussions happen, things come together there for the most part. Other times, some people really put a lot of effort on mylot and in interests... they get either no recognition, no level, or at times punishment via star or level.

Hi programmer, The star rating is generated by the members of Mylot. Notice if you post a topic that many people do not like they will give you a minus rating and your star goes down. So it is other members that troll you and possibly ask their friends to do the same. From what I gather the star rating has no influence on your earnings. I don't know the purpose of the new interest rating.

I dont think mylot is playing a game with the ranking system that they have added here. For me its a sort of a motivation to do more and pst more quality responses and not just for the sake of giving the responses. Its all about the meat in your posts and the meater the post you got the higher ranking you get. I have also noticed that when you post regularly on that particular interest your ranking on that particula interest will become higher and higher and definitely would let you reach the highest rank though many of us share that rank, but the thought of having one of the higest ranks is reason enough to make good and be more ceative whne it comes to posting here on mylot.

I noticed that the ranking system was off a while ago. I have completely tuned it out. I do not really even notice it any more. I don't know what difference it is suppose to make.

In order to have a rank, you have to have that is your interest. So, if you play tennis, but you do not put tennis as your rank, your rank will not be listed. And for those of you who sing, but do not put down singing as your interest, you will not be ranked on that. I do think the ranking system is intimidating as it is based on others's views of the subject and may not be true. It is simple if you have writing and you get a good point, but if you put down tolerance, someone who interprets that as it does not matter what the others do will interpret it differently from someone who believes you should be polite to someone who is either Muslim, Black, fat, or whatever.

Ok, I see what you mean, so you agree what I said about ranking system is intimidating?

Hi! If they have rank in that interest, they did not list/accept it as an interest. When you join a new interest, you are a 1 you get higher numbers as you go.

I notice though sometimes you don't get a rank, I replied at a few topics and didn't get anything, that is why I am confused. oh, who cares, I am tired of recking my brain about it. anyway, you explained it very well!

I don't even pay attention to the ranking system. I do think they give you a rank if you have that as one of your interest. I am thinking if you don't have a ranking you don't have that as an interest. I am not sure though, I just ignore the ranking system.

From my understanding of the new ranking system of interest depends on how many discussions you participated in on the interest subject. So the person that didn't have a ranking hasn't responded to any or very few discussions in that category before. At least that is the way I understand it to be.

First you might consider how often the site updates the rankings. They only update your earnings once a day and they may do the same with the rankings.

Yeah, mylot should explain all the earnings and ranking system very soon. It's for the sake of mylot and te member I think. I don't feel intimidated... yet. Cause I don't get the system very clear. I'm new here and still enjoying.

who knows does it really matter where we rank tho i think as long as we are having fun and talking about what we like to talk about and being honest in our replys it doesn't matter if we are first in ranking or last in rankings or whether we are ranked at all.
