The star is your reputation level on mylot. The higher, the better. Your star/reputation level goes up as you post quality responses on mylot. As long as you keep posting good responses, your reputation will go up.. :)

it means the positivty/negativity of your response and thread posts. If people like your post/find it useful they might + you. This will go towards getting a higher star number. The same goes for - for lower star numbers.
