Stars are just for good posts. If you think a post is good you can give it a star. All it means is someone thought that post was good.

Just a quick querie from a noob. I wanted to start a thread in the UFO/Aliens area just to ask people 'What first got you interested in aliens/UFO's?' Is there a thread already along these lines somewhere? I have had a search around but can't find anything that fits the bill. I would have thought a thread like that would have cropped up somewhere in the history of ATS. Should a thread like that be in the UFO/Alien area or in BTS General Chit Chat?

I have read some stuff saying it is a ranking system?
but i have noticed that peoples 'stars' vary from 1 to 20+
is this a cumilitive system?
is it 'as per' post or is it based on site participacion?
The star system is for members to show post they like, If you like what a poster has written, you star their post, So if you see a members post with lots of stars its other members who have liked what that person has to say,

Ah i see, YOu can only Flag a thread, stars are for posts but Flags are for threads,
If you look at the top of a thread ( say this one- above the first members avatar on this page)
You will see the little box that says (FLAG) this thread has 2 flags,
Let me know if you can see it ok
