The stars by your name relate to the number of points you have (as outlined above). You get 1 point for every reply/comment you make, 2 points for every new topic you post, and 5 points every time someone "thanks" you for a reply/message.

The stars in the "rating" are ratings for posts. You can rate a post when you have it open (up in the corner of the post just above "post options" -- click on how many stars you want to give it. Those show up along side the topic in all the menus.

As far as I know, that doesn't affect the poster's personal points… Big smile

At the moment, I think it's:

0-99 points: Newbie (one star)
100-249 points: Groupie (two star) -- one person with 256 as a Groupie… so maybe 260?
250-499 points: Regular (three star) -- one person with 505 still as Regular? Maybe 510?
500-1499 points: Addict (four star)
1500+ points: Black Belt (five star)

And -- I think it also depends on whether or not you've been active recently. The people that started way back when got to keep their BlackBelt status at under 1000 points… but only as long as they're not active. As soon as you come back it recalculates.

Have fun chasing those stars!

There it is!! Thank you! Also, I've been on this forum since 2014 and never once even noticed the "thanks" button until today. The things you learn when you are bored on a Sunday Night and dont watch the super bowl.....and instead decide to crawl through the forums. LOL
