I plan to watch the vids but thought I would answer some of your questions. While I'm not a mod or even close, I like to know what the
heck is going on around me as well and have found myself asking these same questions.
P is the number of posts the member has made.
S is for stars received
F is for Flags received. You have to start a thread to receive Flags.
W is your WATS index, this is a score derived from an algorithm combining your flags already stars and comparing them to other members. I think the
highest person has like 500 and something. Also I think you have to be a member in good standing (200 posts or more may be one criteria)
K is your karma. This is a score derived from an algorithm combining your stars received (and flags maybe?) and comparing them to the number of posts
you have made in total.
I don't know if your thread can have stars since it is an introduction thread. Also, you might have to have posted over 20 before you can assign
stars, so that could be part of your problem too? It woukd make sense because they get a lot of troll accounts here that could offset the scoring
system if just anyone could give stars, etc.
