You're breaking what little system there is. Stars were designed to award the "Things That Make You Go Hmmm..."

If a person simply stars a post just because it's there, you have now broken the system. We all know the name of the game here is contribution or otherwise ATS wouldn't have any content. RIP to all it's past expert contributors. There is just no reason to show support just for showing up. Never judge a post by it's username.

Instead, why don't you read the entire thing and respect what thoughts or questions the member may have asked you and decide whether it was thought provoking or not worth drawing attention to. Always ask yourself, should I?

Simple.

lol there is certain people that star each others post because they have the same political mind, even if the topic is not political.. bunch of groupies..

Some members even have groupies following there posts.

"Hey look, its the guy i agree politically with!" *Star!*

Dont worry about stars.. to me stars = the quote is probably too simple and approved by mainstream.

My stars are mine to give for whatever I deem worthy just as yours are....

That's the way it works.

If it wasn't then we would all have to get someone to judge whether we were worthy to give out stars and that would just create a whole other system where other judges would be needed and so on and so forth.

You star what you like. I star what I like and the world keeps spinning the same as it always has.

I gave you a star and flag for the OP. I just had to do it because you said not to.

It's okay, I'm not that emotionally invested in stars like some may think. But for younger members, "shiny" often leads new members down trails they might not have taken if they had to fully read, analyze and form their own unbiased opinion in response to the material by themselves.

I gave you a star for being a rebel without a cause.

I always give a star for something that has merit and for something well said that I might not even agree with.

I don't give stars to rude/ignorant posts, or for stuff that is hateful, trolls or someone who gives misinformation.

BUT I always give a star to some poor soul who made the effort to make a comment that didn't rank enough to earn a star but every other poster has recv'd one. No one wants to be left out

I gave you a star for recognizing that I am a rebel without a cause.

There's always a good reason to star someone except if they act rude.

I must confess that I am a little bit of a star whore.

When I browse the site on my phone, I expand the content of the post to where it fills the screen and I can't see the avatars. That way when I read the comments I'm genuinely judging the content rather than the person that wrote it.

I just starred every post on this page! Make it rain!

Oh no!


Because this is my own thread, do I go against my very train of thought?

Without a member's response, what little thread do I have?

Do I star them for simply breathing life into my creation?

So perplexed...

If we don't give out stars, the universe will stop expanding.

I found these and some buffalo nickels in my pocket. They are what that empty outline of a star would look like if I starred your post.
