Even I want to know about the star. I am assuming it is for the best response but I am not very sure. Sometimes the stars have numbers like 7 or 8. Do they indicate the number of best responses??

Nope its not the number of best response. Infact its the rating given , after you reach your 100 th mark, as per the positive or negative rating given on your comments and discussions, by other mylotters. The higher is the number the more positive rating you got, and consequently the more you earn. So participate with healthy, meaningful and informative discussions, which is the motto behing mylot.

It shows the reputation among the MyLotters. For example, how you view a comment posted or discussion started by another MyLotter? You give him up or down rating. So when one gets more positive ratings his rating will go up and it can go down if somebody gives him negative rating. It depends on the way you behave and discuss on MyLot. And your way of discussion, your correctness of spelling and other general things are also considered I guess. And being active improves your rating. I had a rating of 87/100 and was inactive for a week and then in a single day reduced to 68/100! I don't know why it happened. Well, and your rating will be shown only after you reach 100 posts of comments. Hope you get a higher rating and reputation on MyLot! Happy MyLotting!
