P F S W K I'm sure the answer is somewhere but as long as I have looked I can never seem to find it. What do these letters stand for in the side of every members mini-profile. I am guessing point flags stars but the other two are beyond me and I could be wrong about the others. Can someone please help? Thank you!!!! =)

I think the first one is posts, then flags and stars you have received. I have no idea about the other two and have wondered myself. Thanks for asking, I will be interested as well.

heres the answer you need

W stands for WATS index, and is basically your 'level'. It gets higher as you earn more flags and stars. You can see the same number in your profile section. Up to 1.5, I think it is, it's shown to the nearest hundreth, however, once you go past 1.5, it just rounds to the nearest whole number.

K stands for karma, and starts off at 20. I don't know the exact formula, but it's basically the amount of stars and flags you've had, relative to the amount of posts you've made. So, the higher your star/flag count, in comparison to your post count, the higher your karma.

so posts, flags, stars, wats index, karma.
oh and karma goes up for giving stars to people too.

The W = WATS = Way Above Top Secret = flag-to-post ratio:

The K = Karma = star-to-post ratio.

So the two lower ones are based on threads started and stars you get in relationship to posts made. Seems weighted towards not posting unless you expect a reward. I guess I'll just ignore those things on my own profile for awhile, but will notice if I see really high numbers on someone's "score" and will pay some attention there.
