Errrr, I've seen the tiny stars which are supposedly for rating one's post
and the importance thereof (sucks!). Then there's the Golden Bigger Star
that allows you to keep track of what you deem to be worthwhile topics to
keep track on (kewl, since I do use it occasionally).
As for the profiling of which you speak Roy. Uhuh, I'd noticed that some
time ago. Also a cool feature in my opinion. I was able to hunt down this
one particular Tyrant who thought he had total control of this one NG and
well....the rest is history, or rather he is. :-)
