Well don gamesurfer! I just read the other responses and sadly no-one was correct The star is the result of the positive and negative +/- ratings that other users give you for your discussions, responses and comments. The more you get positive ratings the higher your star will be. It DOES affect your earnings. We are told in the FAQS: 'The DRS (Discussion Rating System) is factored into our proprietary earnings algorithm, so this will help us properly reward valuable contributions to the myLot community.' http://www.mylot.com/o/faq/faq17.aspx

The score in your star don't affect your earning. It won't helps anything on your earning, you still have to post hard to earn here.

Congratulations! I hope I can also earn my star soon. Based on my stats, I am 20 relevant posts away from it. Anyway, I also want to ask the same question but most say that it is still how relevant your discussions or responses are that really counts when it comes to earnings. I'm not sure though. I hope Senior mylotters can drop by in this discussion. :)

You earn your stars due to the relevance of your post or response to the topic of the discussions. Every post you make is estimated through it's content or relevance.The more reasonable it is the more you earned...

Congratulations on getting the star.The star denotes your quality of posts and it does not have anything to do with earnings but you can say that it is indirectly related to earnings because the quality post can fetch you more cents and it also increases your reputation and rank. Happy mylotting .

Hello pri2sh, When you reach a 100 posts you will get a star and depending on the quality of your posts you will get a number for that star. You are just 28 posts away from getting a star so keep going! Cheers and happy mylotting!

Congrats for having 8 stars! But it does not help to increase your earnings! I think it just help you to motivate in doing myloting and shows your reputation here in mylot. Happy posting.

No! The star rating doesn't affect anything about your earning. Remember that you earn for the contents of your post, not your rating. I have experienced having low and high ratings but it doesn't affect my earning. It's still the same. Happy myLotting and keep earning!!!

Can I chip in? As I don't want to start another discussion because my question is pretty much the same. So the star, it came from other mylotters' rating. what's with the different colour then (hehehe, I think I sound stupid).

I am glad that someone has found the answer to the stars. They have always been a mystery to me, I had looked in FAQ´s and TOS but somehow the answer must have slipped by. My star recently went up to an 8 and I must be totally honest that I don´t see any difference in my earnings. It must be a very small increase in earnings. However it would be really nice to have a number 10 star! We all like to think that we do well!

Definitely mate , definitely!!! Good luck to you then! cheers and happy my lotting!

Its stated in the FAQ's that the more is your star rating , the more you earn, but i'm really not very sure.., as i don't see much diffence. May be its a small percentage difference.. But i do believe star rating 8 and above is defiantely better..
• India
23 Jul 09
Yeah , i sure do not see any difference and it's almost been a week since i got my star!!! Anyway good for you , you have a 10 rated star and really appreciate your response. Cheers and happy my lotting!

Hello gamesurfer, If I am not mistaken, once you reached your 100th post, you can see your star rating next to your user name. It won't make you earn more based on your star rating. It shows how well you are being accepted by mylot community. That is the point of having plus, minus and neutral sign here at each of your discussion, response and comment.

Hi pal, I think you should have a look at response # 11. Cheers and happy my lotting!
