It being an aspect of the site. And a reward system for quality posts and threads. It makes sense that someone who pumps out quality and gets little would be upset that someone with a sh-ton of stars gets a sh-ton of stars for b/s.

Or have I smoked to much?

I'll star a well thought out reply or something I agree with, well thought out or not. I've yet to flag anything. I don't have a clue what the points are, but I was once notified that I had been docked a thousand of them for being a big jerk. I don't recall being overly concerned by the loss...

STOP TRYING TO STEAL FLAGS AND STARS!!!



Can't earn stars in a Board Business thread, therefore not guilty.

Status.

Same reason that people have 675 "friends" on facebook, they think it is a popularity contest.

I still wish we could trade them. Then we could place bets. I can't convince the ATS owners though.

Interesting idea! You could set up a bidding system. "I'll give you ten stars, Nixie, if you'll mark me as a friend." If you're popular, people will give you more stars to be friends, so you could measure your 'worth" in that manner. The possibilities are endless!

If a person gets enough stars and flags, their thread is shown on the Hot Topics board when you first log on.
Then you get even more traffic to your thread.

Stars and flags are necessary because they make you cool and popular and people will listen to you and . . and not make fun of you, especially at homeroom, in front of Doris Rosenblat, whom I'd had a crush on since FOREVER! BUT NOOOOO, YOU JERKS HAD TO MAKE FUN OF ME AND I NEVER GOT TO ASK HER OUT!!!!!!

WELL LOOK WHO'S LAUGHING NOW! I'M MORE POPULAR THAN YOU COULD EVER EVER BE!

HAHAHAHAHAHA-sobbing hysterically-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
