They are all about pumping up someones ego. The more they get, the more they post to get more. I was guilty of this back before this reincarnation.
Just post good, quality stuff. Don't go for the general chit chat to get them , if that is what you want. Alot of star and flag whores around here.
Most of them posted on here. LOL !

So.....Do stars serve a purpose other than saying you "like" something? Can you go somewhere to see what posts got starred, how many, and by whom? What determines what thread goes to the hot page, or home page? Is it a certain number of flags? If so, how many? If that's how flags work they seem important to get your thread out there to be seen by more eyes and discussed more. Are the stars meant for something similar or just to boost self esteem or make a user feel good watching them add up? Lol....might seem silly, but I wanna make sure I understand.
