This may have been asked before but I was wondering what the 5 stars under our names here mean? Also wondering what the stars under peoples profile in locations mean as well? I think I seen silver and gold ones before. Thanx. :)

The answer to the first question is it is a rating system. The more posts one makes the more stars you gain and you move up the 'ladder'.

For example you could start at "Baby explorer", move up to "Junior Explorer" and then "Super Explorer". The names are definable as are the number of posts needed to advance. I disabled it because I felt people would post crap just to boost their rating. So the stars reflect user levels (basic, full and admin).
 
The answer to the second question is found in the FAQ.

RE: "I felt people would post crap just to boost their rating"

Ha ha ha, universities have a name for those kind of posters when they have mandatory participation required in online discussion forums for courses: they're called "atta-boy!" posts.

(and I think I just did one typing this!)

I usually make ones like that active and make a detailed note in the description.  Are you talking about places that are abandoned on an actively cultivated farm? Or do you mean places you aren't 100% sure about?

no I mean ones that are unlocked , open, and unsure if its abandoned or active but ....vacant ....the explore day of stuff and nice. no one can tell unless they monitor them . I think it should be a category for this reason.

So a Vacant category and Second thing is just my two cents aboot the new scheme , I don't like it, just my input. It looks like it hasn't finish loading and not easy on the eyes. I know you were working on the maps so maybe its from that. Good overall job big guy. cheers.

I think f.o.s. has the best method here.

sure, agreed, but that's still a guess and having it marked Vacant just leaves the decision of active or not to anyone visiting and still to be alert. Vacant would just mean it could be active , is all. One only knows the status at the time they are present.
