Good evening fellow MyLotters. I just want to ask, what is the meaning of the stars beside your avatar. I just noticed that old members here have stars in different color and had numbers on it. Are they in ranking? Can you please give me an idea so that I know. Thanks. :) ----Mimeux

Hi dear, What does the star with the number in it next to my username mean? 1. The star next to your username represents your myLot reputation. 2. You will need a user rating of 100 before you are able to receive a reputation. 3. Your myLot Reputation rating takes into account various factors including the Discussion Ratings System (DRS) and is based on a scale of 0 to 10 stars with 10 stars being the highest. to learn more about the Discussion Rating System (DRS). This is for your ready reference and obliged to myLot and their wordings as it is. Regards, Thank-s

Am a star 8 and have been there for over two years. stars rate your performance here and the higher your star is the better for you. As a beginner that you appear, chances are that your stars will be low, but with more participation, it will definitely rise!
