Note: This section no longer applies because the stars system was removed. It is preserved for historical reasons only. Points still accrue, but are not visible except that they determine levels in the capabilities function.

Stars and Team Icons: Posted by Sheesh
Stars are rewarded for points earned. Getting stars depends on how long you have been a member, the number of posts you have made and where you post. There are other things to determine your star status.
1 2 and 3 silver stars are earned as you reach 2k, 5k and 20k points
1 gold star is shown if you pass 60k points.
1 green star is shown if you pass 120k points.
A single green star is the end of the star system, except that 1 blue star means the user is a site subscriber (tool points).
For Tool points, and Avatars, please see those FAQ sections.
