I have a reputation star now. I found it was 8 yesterday, but today it is 7. I wonder what that means? Does it mean that my postings are of less quality than before?

I think mylot re-calculate everybody's reputation every day, for China user, this time will be happened about 5:00--6:00 PM. I don't how to calculate, but I think there are some elements is avaliable, response's length, anybody's rating for you, response's amount of your discussion. So, just do it serious, you reputation will raise again. When I achieve 100 posts, i got level 6, this is bad for me since I want a 9. But just several minutes latter, I raise to 7. After one day, I raise to 9 directly. I am a little happy.

There's really no way to know why your star rating dropped down. People sometimes even hit the negative sign under a post on accident! You may have even been rated down by people who disagreed with your opinions even though that isn't a valid reason. If you don't feel your postings are worse than before, then I think you should just continue on as normal -- star rating fluctuations just happen.
