I see some have 5 others 3 and what not. Is the participation point thing just to show you've been around and active awhile?
Not JA and not sure if you are kidding but the better your comments, the more upvotes you get and vice versa. If you are over 80% you get 5 stars. Most of the time your comments better be homerish or you will get downvoted lol. However I have made some really nice comments before only to be downvoted for being too much of a homer. I would say the people who are 3 stars and below make extreme comments that are negative towards AU.

Thanks, I honestly didn't know. Upvotes for you sir.
Good Explantion AUtigerNOLA, thanks.

+1 for you NOLA for the explanation. +1 for you 34 for the question. As a newbie here I am still trying to figure this out. Maybe when the Motion Picture Association of America panel meets next month, I can get a rating.
The wheels on the bus go 'round and 'round.
That is dumb and is an absolute crock that you think a 3 star or less is not a worthy contributor. I made a few comments the last month or two that Sunshine Pumpers did not like and down voted me for it. But I have always (95% of the time) received multiple up votes.
I have three stars because of a comment I made regarding Bama. The 247 Bama members did not like it and I received 187 negative votes. At that time any 247 member could vote. Shortly after the policy changed and this practice was stopped.
So don't put that EXTREME OR NEGATIVE TAG ON ME. I am most likely 10 times the fan you ever could be and I find your comment very offensive and very uneducated at best.
I am going to request that this particular comment and the negative votes be redacted from my record and then we'll see if I am a 3 star then. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
I think the practice of down voting should be eliminated. It is very childish.
I didn't down vote your post, but starting out with "that is dumb and absolute crock" is maybe not the best way to approach your concern.
You said "I made a few comments that sunshine pumpers didn't like" as a reason you received down votes...did you consider that maybe it wasn't your opinion that they down voted but maybe you had a "that is dumb and absolute crock" type attitude and tone that got down voted?
Just a thought to consider.
While we are on the subject of the things in our personal little boxes by our posts, what do the designations like Jr Varsity, Freshman, Redshirt, etc mean, and how are they assigned? At first, I thought they were how long we had been members, but I am still a freshman, and I have been a member since before the affiliations with 27/7.
After posting this, I looked back, and it appears that it is related to number of posts. Does anyone have a list of number of posts to jump to various positions? Just curious. I probably won't jump much anyway, as I HATE to type. Mostly, I just read and give my opinion to myself.

Auburn...a family tradition since 1905
My bad, didn't mean to offend you. But for the most part the reason for downvoting is for making comments in which the majority of the people don't like. That usually includes negative postings. Doesn't mean you are not a contributor. I wouldnt care one way or the other they are ,for the most part, opinions and everyone is entitled. They are just stars lol I wouldn't get too worked up over them.
Hell I thought the 5* was for paying my 247 fees on time.

I'm three, haven't been negative to AU. Have been negative toward people that have agendas that drive their writing, people that delight in jumping on coaches when ever the opportunity arises no matter the substance of their problems or if they have no substance at all. There's a clique that finds themselves and suports themselves in any endevour. Find it, join it, and thrive in that bureaucracy. Play the role of contrarian and find your three friends. AUC is clique driven regardless of the apparent fairness of one writer.
