I was with the Sioux when they touched the stars.....StarStarStar


frankly, I wondered when anyone was ever going to notice that!  It's been there for about a year now!

where is the f-king like button?  I want "leave us our silliness, sometimes it's all we have" on a bumper sticker!

We could have some made!

People just look to see the break-off when other people get stars, I think. I don't know that it's actually written anywhere. But, you get more points for "thanks" on your posts than you do for just a comment. So, a good way to blast through the levels is to write something helpful that people will thank you for. :)

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!

I've been around for a little while, and I still don't know how the stars that appear along with our screen names and photo to the left relate to the stars that show up in the center of the screen under the heading, rating. I've looked around on the site but haven't found any explanation. Would anyone care to enlighten me?
