There I said it....I love getting Stars.

I have seen many people pretend their stars have no meaning to them.

That's because....They don't have very many.


The first step in admitting you are addicted to ATS is...Admitting you are a "Star Whore".

Always looking for that thread that might go big. Then throwing in some clever verbiage.

You guys know the drill. But that is not my complaint. I love to star a good post as well.

Every time I give someone a star. My PC acts like it's coughing up a cyber fur ball.

My PC is only a few years old. I am the only person this happens to?

I really does discourage me from giving stars. If it is just my PC please let me know.

If everyone is going through this...It seems like an easy fix.

I am working harder than an ugly stripper for those stars. I am left wondering what if?

Yeah this thread will get shut down quick.

There was another one like this not long ago and i don't think it lasted more than a few hours.

Good luck with yours.

Stars are pretty! The only time my computer has a problem with lagging is when starring posts in a thread with a ton of videos embedded in it. My computer isn't the pinnacle of technology.

ROFLMAO!! What a great thread! I love stars and flags to, but I have
to admit, I don't look for them much. I'm not nearly as articulate as
a lot of members on ATS so I've come not to expect them. I recently
posted 3 threads in a row where I got 0 flags. Great subject matter,
I'm just not the best presenter. Oh f*cking well! I do the best
I can. If I don't get a star or a flag I still hope someone reads it
and hopefully will get something out of it.

S & F for you for working harder than that ugly stripper....

A star for you. (I would put it in your stripper G string but I cant reach) Now don't spend it all at once.

Hey all, I have a fix for the lagginess when giving stars.

Just STAR this post and see if the problem is fixed.

p.s. This is not just some attempt to get more stars. You see, my "K" value is 58 and I really don't need any more of those...precious...little...stars.

Well then I guess that answers the question within your user-name!


*Sits back and waits for the stars to roll in*

No?.... You tight BAS........


In all seriousness though I don't really notice a delay when staring but after staring sometimes I will get a message after refreshing the page again saying "you can't star that post" or something like that... I'm like WTF?

CLASSIC....

That would make you a Native American Flag Giver.

You can take that flag back.

But that star is mine forever.

I give stars to those who I actually read the thread and stars for every person who posts on one of my threads. I got a U2U for not giving enough stars.
And I was like, really, your going to yell at me for that? So, I was like fine, whatever, here's your dang stars. Been giving stars ever since. Before I gave zero stars.

Mine does the same thing when I give stars.. cute way of putting it actually..
coughing up furballs


I hate when it disrupts the music I'm listening to on the music threads, so I save it for later and sometimes forget.

Try switching to Firefox or Chrome, and see if your computer still hiccups. Also, make sure you keep Java and Adobe Flash updated on your computer. These are integral to your internet experience. And lastly, get rid of all toolbars at the top of your browser. All of them! Uninstall them from Control panel>programs and features.

Oh, one more thing. Get a decent junk file cleaner, and use it. Ccleaner is my suggestion. It does what it was intended to do without crashing your machine to do it.

You might have my answer.

I use Chrome, but I never update Flash or Adobe.

Thanks....That is easy

You know? I throw them around like parade candy. And not just to those I agree with, but for anyone who appears to have put thought and effort into a post.

It costs nothing, and is strangely satisfying.

Oh, and it's not just your PC. Myself and a few others I've talked to also run into it, as well as video content causing constipation.

P.S. S&F

Chrome has flash integrated, so Java is the important one there. Good luck.
