Yesterday I had a blue star with 10 on it. Today I have a gray star with a 7 on it. I had a reputation of 98 out of 100 yesterday now I have a reputation of 65 out of 100. All that happened overnight and I am shocked. Has your My Lot reputation changed a great deal? What do you think has happened to my reputation?

Hello max, that is disgraceful, and you are entitled to an explanation. Have you contacted the administrators for a reason. Your discuccions are never offensive, and I for one would want to know why. I had a small downgrade a small downgtade some time ago, but it was so minimal, I didn't do anything about it. Chin up. Mike.

Hi my friend Mipen. I really wanted to contact My Lot to ask what I had done to upset people so much. I Know that sometimes I respond to topics like politics which can be really touchy. I am sorry that you had a downgrade sometime ago. I am pleased to see you are back where your should be: 10. Max.

Just another glitch,with many members getting a little agitated, and with reason. However, all's well that ends well. Mike.

The situation would appear to have rectified itself...I came in to this discussion from the daily mylot email to say I hadn't minused You,but your 98 pointer 10 star is still very much in evidence..(Now to see has MY rating taken a Dive when I send this!)

Yesterday I had been responding some peoples discussions and then I had seen a gray star with a 7 in it. I had felt really upset and worried in case people hated my responses. I read people's responses on my email system then found out the problem had been rectified itself. I wish you lots of luck at getting your normal star back.

I am delighted things are now back to normal. I try hard not to violate the My Lot rules. It was indeed an error and it seemed to happen to many people. I am so glad that you have your normal star back.

Yes, mine seems to have gone down from 9 to 6. I think that MyLot have updated the rating system. It would be nice to know how and why. Presumably the new system is fairer in some way. Perhaps, even, we shall get an Alert in the next few days??? I certainly don't think that ALL of us have suddenly lost kudos. It's more likely that there were too many with 9s and 10s and that the new system just puts things more in perspective. I really hope that MyLot will explain the new system in full sometime soon. I don't happen to notice my star rating too much - I simply do the best I can here and am confident in that - but others do seem to set store by it.

I have 'reported' this discussion (but gave you a '+' for starting it) with a recommendation that MyLot explain sooner than soonest or we shall be inundated with 'discussions' about "Why has my star gone down?" (I think we already are ... and MyLot isn't - or shouldn't be - about this sort of thing!)

Thanks for telling My Lot about the problem Owl Wings. After getting to 100 responses I think a star is important to most members on My Lot. I am pleased to see that everyone has their normal star back again now. I will be giving a plus and really be appreciating the responses that I get to my discussion.

I didn't even realize it until I saw another discussion about it and went in to see whether mine was down or still a nine. Well is down to a 6/10 and I too am very disappointed. I think this will be my last month here. The changes they are making don't sit well with me so I guess it's time to move on, but I have had 3 great years here.

I think it's best to just wait and see what they tell us about the new system, WebMann. I'm sure that MyLot think that it's a fairer way of doing things. Don't look at how much your rating has dropped: what is more important is where you are relative to other people.

Hi there Web Mann. I have also been a member for three years and so it would be disappointing to call it a day. I hope that you will stay ON My Lot. I hope that you will keep your normal star. Good luck.

They even control our dreams now, Grandpa Bob? Uhhhh ... so they do! That one I had last night about posting my referral link and how I got 180,000 referrals out of it just got deleted "This dream no longer exists due to a violation of the HyPnos Guidelines"!

I never try to violate the My Lot rules. I think My Lot is excellent and I try to treat it with care. I don't know what happened yesterday my friend Grandpa Bob. It looks like all is back to normal now.

I was also confused about my reputation.I had a blue star for a long time,then it decreased to a red star with 9,as you can see now.I was wondering what happened.Did i do something wrong or break some rules here?Some mylotters told me that may be because someone had rated me bad or some of my posts were turned down.Anything is possible.So I just hold on here and think less about those reputation problems. Happy mylotting.

I didn't go on My Lot today until right now. I was thinking many people must have hated my responses because I dropped from 10 to 7. Now I notice that I have my normal star back again. I wonder what happened. Good luck with your star Sweetyethot.

Thanks my dear friend. I wonder what happened to many people's stars. I stayed away from My Lot today until I read some of the responses sent to my email account. I am so glad that the stars are now back to normal. Hug.

we are all the same, so no worry about it. But then, mine is already back after a few minutes of being here. I was not here yesterday so, I did not know about it until this afternoon when I logged in my star color was changed but it came back and I am glad about it.

So many other people had the same shock as I got yesterday. I could imagine going to 9 but to 7 really shocked me. I thought that people had begun to find my responses boring. I also worried that I might have got a negative responses from responding to touchy sorts of subjects. I wish you all the very best with wonderful My Lot.

Shoot, I went from a 10 to a 6, so I went down 4. Wow, what a jump too. Oh well, I am sure that mylot is working on it to fix the problem. I figured when I saw that everyone was affected, that it wasn't just me, as I know that I didn't do anything wrong. It must bea big time glitch, and I have never seen a gltch this bad before. In fact, I have never seen our stars affected like this before. It is our earnings or other things, not our star, so whatever is going on, I hope it gets fixed today sometime, but I guess we just have to be patient, and it will happen. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

I am delighted that you are now back to 10. Oh, you went down to 4 and I would have been so upset if that had been me. What a very strange glitch it was that most have worried many people. The earnings are just a bonus but I can see if they went down from $10 to $7 overnight it would be a shock. Good luck to you.

everybody has been demoted, maybe myLot is about to outsource its users

It's called 'devaluation'. Maybe it's linked to the way the dollar is falling in the international market.

as good a theory as any, I guess... I prefer to think that they just hired a programmer from Yuwie who put in an unscheduled "enhancement".

Don't be disheartened maxi. Mainly you make discussions on travel. That may be reason for changing your stars. I think if you diversify your subjects your star will shine again.

Hi my friend Bhanusb. Yes, travel is one of my favorite topics. I think that you are right that I should diversify my topics more. I am delighted to see that my star is back to normal. I wish you have a happy time on My Lot.

I'm really delighted my friend Maxi that you came back to your position. But I enjoy your topics on travel. In my boyhood I have a hobby to see world map. I used to move my pencil form one place to other place. As if I was traveling.

I do not know what's wrong or what's happening but you are not alone with that. Two other friends of mine have experienced that. I have read in their discussions about that last night and they are wondering what had happened.

I was on 93 even a few hours ago. But now I am on 58. It has come as a shock. But I am still holding my breath. I am hoping that soon I will get back my old reputation. I wish mylot solves this quickly or at least let us know why such a thing has happened. Hoping for the best.

It was such a big shock and it put me off using My Lot today until this evening. When I came back on to My Lot I noticed my blue star came back. I am delighted that your red star is back too.

Think of 5 as 'average'. Actually, 53/100 is a little higher than average.

Hi Tamara. I am glad to see you are now back to a blue star saying 10. 95 out of 100 is blue star but one person that has that has a red star. So I was not the only person that felt down when I thought my reputation had taken a serious nose dive. Max.

Yeah friend, Before i had a red star and now its get down to a green. I think Mylot did this to reduce the payment. And make us work hard. Wow a gray star is a very good work friend. Hope you can retain your blue star soon. Good luck friend.

maximax8, I hope by now the SRS is back to normal for you. I think all of us are all affected and there are quite a lot of posts going about it. Anyway, all's well that ends well- these glitches are just rampant and myLot is no exception. Take care.
