    star system

    No I'm not talking about space lol. So under our names we have a series of stars. I've been searching up in the top right there with phrases like star system, member stars....... Without any hits on what I'm looking for.

    Just interested in knowing at what point do you get a new star and if they mean something etc. If someone could throw me a link or something to what I'm looking for that would be grand. Thanks.

    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    I don't know about the rest of the members but when I got a 4th star it came with a large cash prize.

    When I got my latest star they doubled the salary I get for posting!

    You get a salary? I am on commission. I get so much for each negative response I can generate! Not doing very well so far, but I'm taking "Snarky" classes at the local junior college.

    They must not like you very much, I got new guns and ammo with each star.

    By the way DC, the Sig50 Tactical is awesome! Thanks!

    Stars are based on how good looking the member is.
    Mark Twain:
    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    They messed up on yours then Timmy!

    So basically I have nothing left to gain. 1000 posts and I have reached my peak. Guess I need to start shelling out the cash. Lets have more levels, this is not just informative it is a competition and with OldVet around 7,000 more posts than me we shouldn't be in the same lane!

    Edit: So 177 more posts to my peak, and THEN the Vet and I will be in the VIP!

    I'm pretty sure you got that backwards. I've found that I get better looking with more stars.
