    I've disabled the star system for now. Let's have a run at how people react.
    The post count is still available in the users profile.

    Thank you, Cleo. This was much needed. There were too many people placing undue importance on stars.

    'See how people react'

    LOL!!! farraday and epic will go ballistic! *evil grin*

    Edit: I like the stars myself, they are pretty, but I don't put a huge importance on them.

    You will have a revolution on your hand. People are not going to be happy about this. :)

    This is our most desperate hour.

    I feel naked, like a newbie again.

    I liked looking at them. Made me feel special. I didn't even get to say good bye to the stars! Oh no! (Holds back tears) But if this is the way it has to be. I guess I can handle it even though I feel like a first time poster all over again.

    Not that it means anything to me, but you've made a bland forum even blander without the extra dash of color. I know it's petty, but oh well...

    Well now we need more color........ Wait, this is just a ploy by admins to bring more attention to their colors on this Black and White board.

    tenorjedi is right. The newbies tend to make lots of threads to get attention, while people with stars usually don't. They just assume that the stars give them enough recognition alone. But now, like tenorjedi said, some of them will start being annoying. *eew*

    It does look a little plain doesn't it. Maybe instead of no stars, we can give everybody 5 stars or better yet just give us colors. ;-)

    The board does look awfully plain without them. Its all a dreary grey and black. Depressing. If stars are a problem, can we do something else to brighten this place up? Otherwise keep the stars.

    Newbies usually post tons of crap just to *get* stars. I predict, a whole legion of spammers and trolls will now leave this place.
