This star rating can go up and down . It depends on how other members perceive our posts . My star rating has been fluctuating a lot . It is down and up many times . At present my star rating is down with seven ( original 98 to 91 now ) . we need not worry about this star rating system . It just denotes our reputation given by other members of this Mylot site . pls see more details about this Mylot user reputation system at a discussion started by Mylot administrating staff here : http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/573319.aspx

^ as xParanoiax said it , some users are misusing this rating system ( + , - , ! ) . This could be the reason for the decrease in your star rating !

Okay..as I understand it the rating system goes up and down by people plus or minusing your responses and replies. People aren't SUPPOSED to abuse the system though. As far as I've seen you haven't said anything bad to be minused for. Unfortunately there's no way to find anyone who abuses the rating system..some people like to minus people just to see if they're react or to be mean. *winces*

hi there, well when i first got my rating it was an 8 and i went up to a 9, i think what it is is that maybe people have been rating you - or not rating you at all because i got told why my star went up because people had been rating me + so maybe that's what has happened to you, im not so sure tho! :O)
