The stars by your name?
« on: December 10, 2010, 11:40:26 AM »
How do you earn them (or lose them)? I've seen different colors of stars as well. What does this mean?

Not mine. My younger son is quite concerned about that. :(
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Fixed it.  Showing 1 star when you deserve more is a glitch that often arises when people are registered for the Private Fora.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Colored stars come in 4 categories: Administrator, Global Mod, Moderator, and Site Supporter (i.e. acknowledged donor, vs anonymous donor).

Btw, can you stop posting for about ten years so I can catch up??
