I am curious about everything, so I am naturally curious about how the up vote/getting more stars by your name works. I have never figured it out. I do not care personally about having five stars, etc, I'm just interested in knowing how the system works.
Say, I have four starts, how many upvotes to I need to go to five stars? How many downvotes to go to three starts, et cetera.

I don't know off hand. Let me look into it.

If you are 80%+ on upvotes, you are 5 stars. 60%+ is 4 stars. 40%+ 3 stars, 20%+ 2 starts, and everybody gets at least a star.
Your rating is upvotes/total votes. You are currently at a 77 rating with 413 total votes, so it appears you have 318 upvotes and 95 downvotes. You need 63 upvotes without a downvote to get to an 80+ rating and get a fifth star. You need 118 downvotes without an upvote to drop to 60 and lose a star, unless rounding keeps your star for a little while longer.
Maybe the distinction is right at the multiple of 20% and not going above the multiple; I'm not sure of that.

Sounds like something Mack would say
Thanks, that is everything I need to know. I appreciate the time.
He would here's a gold star, a seven place ribbon for finishing, and a nice hug. Sally's waiting to give cookies.

If it's important, I'll give you regular upvotes.
Law AND math. Now, I am impressed.
How come some days I start the day with 4 down votes available, some days its 3 and some days its 2.
I don't down vote often so its not holdover. Say I down vote a thread and I get the response (you have 3 down votes remaining)
Then a week later I down vote and it says you have one down vote remaining. Then two days later it may say I have 2 remaining. It seems completely random.
How come when I want to upvote someone at times it turns out to be a down vote? I hate when that happens. Is there a way to find out who is up or down voting you?
I will never make 5 stars because I think, act and talk like a girl!!!!!!!hahahahahahahahahahahahahah!!!!!

Thank you sir, I appreciate it, but that is not necessary, I was just curious on how it worked.
+1 for you though.
That was worth a +1
The true test of a man's intelligence is how much he agrees with you.
I'm glad someone asked that question, I've wondered, thanks for ansking and Bierce thanks for the answers. Does anyone now why after a year I got the red downvote arrow activated? Never had a downvote to award before.
How does it work?
Downvotes are for people who can't add to a discussion and get butt hurt, and upvotes are for people who have a sense of humour and/or add some form of substance to any thread.
