    Five stars just means you want to be a heck of a guy and still working at it, and you don't have as much hot gases and stellar matter as a six star member.

    The stars denote how much methane you have spewed forth on the forum

    They folks with one star have to send all of the five and six star folks a box of ammo of their choosing. I'll take 45 ACP, please, Gold Dots.

    BTW, Welcome!

    Or it could mean that one hasn't quite perfected their communication skills as evidenced by the fine art of story telling...



    on second thought RamRod....maybe I should change my name to HotGas...

    You get one star every time you give a straight answer to a question, you'll see nobody has more than six.

    Lots of replies but no answers.

    I'm really surprised that nobody has referred you to the "sticky" thread in this forum:

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Since nobody has given you a definitive answer to your question, I will.

    When you have made a certain number of posts, you earn stars. They really don't mean anything but are a quick way to to tell how active a member has been. You could also compare the post count with the amount of time a persona has been a member here, but it is more of a graphic representation. The breakdown of when you "earn" a star is:

    5-49 posts = 1 star
    50-249 posts = 2 stars
    250-499 posts = 3 stars
    500-999 posts = 4 stars
    1,000 up = 5 stars

    All staff have 6 stars regardless of the number of posts they have.

    With so many long time members, that system should probably be reworked, but, honestly, it is just an indicator that some look at and other don't....
