I have had a red star with a number nine in it for quite some time. Last week I noticed it went to a blue star with a number ten. Now it is back to a red nine. Whats up with that? Can anybody explain to me why that happens?

It has to do with your ratings... those + and - symbols next to your posts. When you get a lot of + ratings by other users, your number will go up! If you get a lot of - ratings by other users, then your number will go down. I've been at a 9 for months now! I've been trying so hard to get a 10! Then suddenly last week, I went down to an 8! I'm so upset! Right now I'm trying very hard to get back up to a 9!

Hi bmorehouse No wonder in it.It happens with me also. This is nothing to bother much.It is the ratings given by other mylotters for our responses.Normally no one will mark a negative response. So what I assume,it is because some of your responses got deleted due to rules violation.Rules violation need not be from you.In that discussion,if any one violated the rules in their responses,the whole discussion with all the responses get deleted. Happy mylotting.
