Gold Stars
« on: March 09, 2010, 10:03:07 PM »
Could one of the Illustrious and Venerable Admins explain the gold stars in the signature block?  I've been trying to figure out why I have them and others do/don't.

Thank you!

Because you're cooler than everyone else, Father ;)

Joking aside, it's post-based. The more you post, the more stars you get.  The system rewards quantity over quality. Our POM feature tries to offset that :)

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.
