What if we discard the star count display in the avatar and keep them using for highlighting posts / expressing same opinion / give credit?
I mean, It may be a single observation I made and I can be wrong of course but I got this impression lately:
Over the years, it seems the overall star count does not reflect good posters anymore in it´s essence. The political madness that overtook ATS some
time ago clearly reflects that. Not only there, so often, (probably unintentional) disinformation is posted by a higher star count member and people
just take it for granted and do not even validate it.
Made that mistake, too on the reader side of things.
I don´t want to yank any high-star-count-members chains, just an idea. If it´s good or bad, please post! And stay civil.
