what if your not that good in advices and doesnt help anyone? but your good in just posting a lot and makng new discussions... so it means you got higher rate..? i was consecutive 10 star rating until now, its a question but i rather not mind coz we are sometimes not getting answers.. now, are all the member here feel the same? do we deserve this star? most of the good ones i saw are decreasing and i dont know what is the real basis.. but i think most are not worth the rate... hope no one gets mad..

I don't know exactly the basis for ratings and the basis of payment, but I can help you out with your question by telling you about my case. I've been here for 3 weeks now, and I have 17+ dollars in my account. I noticed that my earnings keep on getting increased by the day and I'm surprised to see that the others members are getting decreased. My star rating has consistently increased (never went down) and stayed at 9 for a week until now. I don't have referrals, and my friends in the list don't reply to my discussions (but it's okay, we don't coexist because I choose the discussions I reply to). There are days that I don't log in (busy schedule) and whenever I log in, I would average 20 posts a day. That's usually amounting to $1.20. I think the star rating is not based on how good you post responses, but based on the (+) and (-) that you get from the other members. Also, when you often get the "best response" for the discussion (which I do). I don't think that the star is a basis for earning. That's why I don't believe that someone with a 10 is getting higher earnings than someone with a 7. I advise that you choose the discussions you respond to. Avoid close-ended questions and those that invoke fighting.

Hey, I'm sorry I think you misunderstood my post. You were asking about the stars, right? I just said that my advice so that your stars won't go down is not to answer discussions that invoke fighting because somebody might negate you (or put negative on you), and don't answer questions with "what do you prefer..." kind of thing. I think you might be thinking I'm angry or something. I never do that. Otherwise, I won't get 9 stars and I won't get best responses. Good day!

Actually, I don't really understand how to increase the star rating clearly. Someone said that it is rated by members, someone said that it is rated by maylot. What is the correct answer? If someone knows, please ket us know. Thanks a lot for your help.
