how do you know how many stars you have?

So is the difference between the new flag count display in one's public profile and the old flag count display in one's profile the amount of times you have flagged your own threads?

Unfortunately I create few threads, and the ones I create do not attract many flags.
At this rhythm, I will have to wait some 25 years to reach the 200 flags level.

i am sorry - but flags and stars are ZERO indication of quality - rather popularity and herd mentality
just look at how many flags that threads in the HOAX section have - were they quality ????
if you want to reward members for thier quality contribution - applause is a far more accurate metric of a posters contribution - as its a staff obly award

Where can you see where you rank in post number??

Applause is (usually) only given for high quality posts that actually contribute to a thread or topic.
Perhaps they could be factored in somehow? Like 250/250/250/50(applause)

About 90% of all our page-views come from non-members. So this is simply a small reward for those that help make that happen.
