    Stars

    Can you tell me what the 5 stars on some of the posts are for? I've looked everywhere but can't seem to figure it out.... and sometimes I see a milk carton....
    thanks

    Thay pop up when someone "grades" your thread. I can't remember how I figured it out, but I was curious at one time too, I think I hovered over something and it said the thread had 5 stars, or something.

    It's right there at the top of your first comment. It says "rate this thread" next to "view first unread"

    I dunno. Maybe there's another reason. Alek Rayno posted only once, got a couple of comments, and lo! five gold stars showed up almost immediately!

    Sounded like she didn't know anybody here, but maybe she does at that. Or.... ????

    Kitty- She could have rated it herself, while trying to figure stuff out? Or to get more "hits".

    Also, the "milk carton" I think it when someone tags the post with a word or ten. Usually it's used for searches. If you hover over it, you can see what the person decided to tag it with.

    Oops! Miranda, you're right! They're here too.

    Hey, had I known this before, the place would be shimmering with gold.

    (But who knew Alek so well? )

    Just saw your post, Miranda. Rate it herself? Wow, that smacks of...never mind.

    But you could be right.

    lol... I'm sure it would. I'm sure more one stars than five stars. (:
