Well, i joined mylot a month ago and i don't know much about ratings until my friend told me, then one day i made my goal to achive 100 to see my MYLOt ratings and i did reached on the same day to 100 posts, and what i saw that my mylot ratings low down to bottom and its 3 am little disappointed and thought about it that why mylotters don't like my posts and then slowly slowly i build my ratings by posting some lengthy posts and then my ratings again goes up to 10 So whats your story behind this STAR RATING my friend,,,??? How did you start and how much your ratings fluctuate??? And whats your star ratings now??? Share your stories here... Cheers!!!

yeah, it will definately take some time to build your ratings and all you have to do is to post some quality discussions and post some cool response so that you can grab some best responses... Thanks for being here...

I guess we all start having a star rating of 3 when we get into our 100th post. But then, I've seen users having a star rating of 10 with only about 150 posts. Mine's still 5. I know it's up to the other MyLot users to increase or decrease that star rating, so I will just let it be. Hopefully in time my star rating will be as high as yours, too!

no, not really, as in this discussion i have seen a couple of mylotters saying that their star ratings starts off with 9 and most of the cases its 6 atleast and i think due to some circumstances we got 3 ratings... Have Fun!!!

My star is a 9, it has always been a 9 LOL It hasn't moved at all. I don't see that as a bad thing either.

I am new to this site but I almost always give a positive rating to anyone who responds to a discussion. :D I only refuse to rate when I really don't like the response. But I never give negative ratings. I don't know if anyone has rated any of my responses yet...

When I first got to 100 and received my first star mine was number three too but I didn't understand what it meant then and was just really pleased to have got a star and it has gradually crept up to a 10 to which with more understanding I am really pleased about. I can't remember the fluctuations if there were any. Just love being on here and sharing my thoughts with people and they with me. Ellie :D

ohh, thats really a good star you got my dear friend, for you its just keeping up for a few days but for me, its very hard me to gain my ratings up, my ratings continuously fallen down from 3 to 2 and then suddenly i started posting some lengthy responses and everythings goes fine,,,and also due to some best response also an important role in keep my ratings up. Thanks for being here...

i tried my best to make discussions easiest as i can. those discussions that not only for my country but also other country is involve. i found many discussions here that i do not know what it means because it is only for their country. sometimes they talk about their personal belongings or personal stuff that even their neighborhood don't. wow, it's really amazing. if they are one of my email notification i tell them frankly that i do not know what it means so can you explain me what is that? well, all of them are very kind and because i comment their discussions everyday even i don not know. LOL

Hello there mnsrwt123, this is a good discussion indeed. I started out with my star rating of 7 and I was a bit disappointed but still happy nevertheless because I love to answer friends' discussions and all that. But after some time, I got involved in more discussions and I saw my star rating increasing and from a 7, I went over to a 9. I was very jubilant about that and I would like to thank all those who have rated me with a +. Thank you so much, and I will rate all discussions that I answered as a +, because I love to answer nice and positive discussions such as yours. As well as a motivating one. Thanks and have a nice day there. ;)

When i reached the 100 post my rating was 91 points and i was in the red star, and slowly it got improved to 94 points and i was very much eager in getting one more point to 95 , as that would fetch me a blue star, and in the process i lost control of the quality of posts, where i started to post too much of links in money making programs, only to find my rating plunging to 91 points again.. Then i decided to make a steady progress and by now i am in 10 star, with 96 points.. Hope that i will keep it intact. Take care friend.

When I reached my 100th post I had a 6. It was a bit discouraging as I saw other mylotters with higher star ratings and I had wanted a higher numbered star too. LOL At that time I didn't understand why it was only a 6 as I never offended anyone, at least not to my knowledge, and I would reply to discussions honestly. As time went by I noticed it would slowly rise a few points and then the next day it would drop a point or 2. It was this way for a few months until I finally got my 10 star. I know this star system has it flaws with some people rating others negatively just because they don't agree with what that person said, which isn't right, but I still like having the star, though instead of the users rating us it should be the admin instead. Maybe all of us would have a better chance at being rated fairly, if it were this way. Just a thought!

yeah, i know how you feel when it happens to someone when our ratings got down, and you are so lucky subha, as when my ratings fluctuates, its directly goes down from 98 to 87 lol... and yours still goes down a bit, so i don't think that you need to worry about that, but it hurts when you see your ratings in mylot fluctuate that much... Keep posting!!!

Yes, it pretty nice to remember and look back to see what worked and what did not work. I reached up 100 and I was amazed to see the red star. I managed to give more and share my little experiences everyday, bad days or good days. And even share good thoughts I learn from my daily conversations with my coach that relates to my everyday experiences. T'was a nice feeling when I reached up the blue star. As I went by with the blue star and learning upon the reputation thing, I looked up mine and was amazed to see 99 but whew, it went down to 96 at some point until I gained back to 98. Still, here at mylot, I am learning what works and what did not work because at some point in our life, it is what we also want to check, what is working makes our lives more better and we must also eliminate what didn't work or make it better.

quality posts hon, but there is a troll on that is someone that goes around negatively rating people and I think he got to me because I went down to 95 out of 100 which means any lower and I loss my blue star.

hello, i joined mylot a month and a half ago and after 3 weeks (i think) i finally reached my 100 post and got 9 on it. i didnt expect it as i dont know how it works and i honestly dont care much about it. after 3 days of having 9 i got 10 and the highest i got so far is 97 but now i am 95, i wont be surprised if one day i will be 1 haha. it is just a number and that dont describe you as a poster here i think. you mention you are 10 but i just saw you 9, maybe when you read my post i am 1, who knows. anyway, just keep posting and having fun that is all that matters. takecare!

Whew, I already knows that you got 9 ratings RED star when you finishes off your 100, And thats pretty cool that you got a decent ratings of 95 right now, And as you said above that my rating is 9 instead of 10 is just because this rating is the latest and that discussion was started by a few days ago,,, And I really appreciate you saying that It doesn't matter whats your ratings is, and now I also don't mean any ratings either,,, Its just a number for me,,,nothing else... Thanks for sharing. Have fun!!!
