    Hmmm. Only for the last 22 posts. Maybe somebody has been fiddling?

      Yeah, I think someone just went through posting a rating. I didn't know you could do that without posting an entry.

        Yup. Just gave Level Heads stepper motor question a five star rating.

          That's not all that's going on. My sig line just went away and I haven't changed anything.

            So I have given this post a terrible rating.

            To reflect the terrible aspects of this feature.

              I hope that they can find the kid that just registered and remove him/her (it) from the board.

                I was wondering about the "stars" business. There is alot about this forum that is not clear to me. I had no I dea you could do any of that stuff, like rating a thread. Also, what is the deal with the little red triangle up in the right top header bar, next to a number? Sorry to be so ignorant, I just machine things and fix stuff and am not a computer whiz.

                  This is from the FAQ list concerning the rating system,

                  "You may find a small menu on thread pages which allows you to 'rate this thread' with a number between 1-5.

                  Casting a vote for threads you view is entirely optional, but if you think that the thread is superb, you might rate it as a 5-star thread, or if you think that it's unspeakably dismal, you might choose to rate the thread with a single star.

                  Once enough votes have been cast for the thread rating, you may see a set of stars appear with the title of the thread in the thread listings. These stars reflect the average vote cast, and can allow you to quickly see which threads are worth reading if you are on a very busy forum with a lot of threads."

                  The little red triangle can be ignored.

                          Nah. That was meant for engineers.

                            OK...I still missed something, but who cares. On the prod today...sorry. Some little a$$holes tried to break into my night managers apartment last night. They even had the bedroom lights on. Smashed the door jamb and broke out the backset.
                            Night guy heard them trying to break into the bus depot next door right after that.
                            RCMP sent ONE female cop. She was scared to go into the alley where these creeps where. Nice!
                            They got away.
                            Now I'm waiting for the night guy to quit. When he first wanted the job I told him he should have a loaded shotgun but he wouldn't listen.
                            Oh...I first thought this thread was about the STARS air ambulance.
