The star system as you called it, is tied directly to the Thanks system - commonly seen as a thumbs up icon on posts. The stars are a rating system for topics and forums based on the the amount of likes or thumbs up or thanks were given overall in that section. You can give them by clicking on the Thumbs up icon on posts and people can give them to you based on your posts. Most areas have the thanks system enabled, just look for the Thumbs up.Bitchface_Killah wrote: ↑Sun Jun 23, 2019 1:20 amThis is kind of confusing and hard to navigate. I have a couple questions. First, what's up with the star system? How do you get or give them? And then I wondered how do you or can you start a forum or a topic about someone who does not have one yet? Thanks!
Almost any area is open to creating a new topic, you'll know if you can't based on a lock icon. Otherwise, there will be a button that says New Topic ... feel free to start a section for anyone we don't currently have ... although you might want to do a search first, to make sure they just aren't shoved into some obscure section and they do exist on the site.
I hope that helps answer your questions, feel free to reply here or ask around or PM the staff if you have any further questions.
