What does the star next to a Feedback score mean?
Feedback stars are located to the right of a member’s username. Stars are awarded based on a member’s Feedback score.
In most cases, members receive:
+1 point for each positive rating
0 points for each neutral rating
-1 point for each negative rating
The more points you get, the higher the “star” level will go.
