Stars are pretty invalid imo
My average is decent, but I know for a fact my opinions are not that popular...
It depends on the subject and the tenacity of the post...
Then sometimes it can be a first page descent into madness where everyone has 50 stars in a race for the most asinine snidy remark.
I've never felt validated by a star, much more so by PMs from members who discuss backstage quietly what they appreciated or didn't about a post.
& you can make some real good friends that way too.
Much more personal, and usually more meaningful.
For example, sorry for the diatribe, but I've starred posts that made me laugh, almost cry, stars that I thought the person deserved for effort,
people being ganged up on, and sometimes I've starred people by accident...
I think it's generally a mood thing.
I don't know what the question was now.
Ahh yes, I dunno about that idea, might be a lot of configuration work to pull it off.
Flag though, something might come of it.
