Hello,

Better to lose all your stars than to lose all your marbles.  laugh


I wonder if this has anything to do with the new titles? Though I still have all my stars - curious.

heheheh.  I dunno.  There are times when I wonder about where all my marbles have gone too.  Then again with three kids it's likely that *they* took them.  Grin

OC net presents "Star Lost", a ecumenical group that disappears while viewing a meteor shower from a high mesa on the border of Arizona and New Mexico...

Perhaps this may explain the mystery of the lost stars:

Forum members,

With great joy, I have the privilege to announce to all who read this message that, in response to requests to have OC.net posting titles beyond that of Archon, we have implemented a new and expanded system to keep up with our frequent posters!

This new system has already taken effect, and already it has had an effect: several of our posters have titles beyond that of Archon!

Long live OC.net, as 2008 starts yet another record breaking year!

ah. Thank you, OzGeorge.  The stars were used as a trade-in to get the new title, maybe?  Grin Wink

Suddenly the thought went through my head "Stars are like Green Stamps."  That dates me, I suspect.  Cheesy  So I have to collect more postings to trade in.

When the new titles were added, no stars/colors were assigned to them other than the default one yellow star.  We're working on a new star/symbol system.

I'm trying to figure out if or what I may have done.  Last week I had a row of stars.  Now there's only one.  Did I break something?

I must have broken something, so it's all my fault.  Wink

Up to about 100 posts, I had 3 yellow stars.  After 100 posts, I have just one yellow star.  I figured that no one liked me and my stars were taken away as a consequence.   Cheesy

Now I have 4 stars.  Thanks Cleveland for whatever you did to resolve the issue in little time.   Wink
