Nice! Those were good answers and I liked the questions that sonofthesun chose to ask. More local to us as a community and less about world
politics. I like the idea of being able to un-star a post, too.
For as much as some members don't like the stars on posts, I love them. When I get them it is a nice feeling and when I make a post that I think is
good, but it doesn't get a star and others in the thread are being starred, it makes me stop and look over my post more carefully and try to think of
why. Maybe my wording wasn't clear or it wasn't as interesting as I thought it was or whatever, but it encourages me to work harder and put more
thought into my posts and see if I can make them better.
I like giving stars to posts, too. I hand those out like candy. There is no set reason why, sometimes it is because I agree with what the poster
wrote, or maybe they made me laugh. I give stars to posts that I don't agree with if they are well written with lots of research put into them and
point me in the right direction to continue researching. There are any number of different reasons why I give stars. Partially, just because I hope
that it makes someone feel that what they wrote was appreciated.
I know it is relevant to nothing, I just wanted to share why I like the star system that is in place here, even if other members don't.
I really don't have anything to say about the flags, just because I've only started two or three threads since I've been here.
Anyway, I liked your answers and thought that sonofthesun asked some interesting questions.
