Hi Larry,
I'm not sure how you get Ratings Stars - I'll leave that for Herb or Woody

The seashells are simply forum markers - if they are rotating you have unread stuff in that forum.

The flames are for stuff like you Appetite Mine that is "hot stuff" - generating lots of postings and looks. I'm not sure what it takes to put the flames out or how much activity it takes to go from a slow smoulder to furnace heat :)

Howdy Larry, I do hate the "ratings" BS but can't get rid of it! I think your thread is worth 5 or more stars however. I do believe that there are some "cranks" who "vote" for one star when they think that those with 5 or so need to be "taught a lesson".. Who knows. Here, we have some very excellent threads which used to have 4 or 5 stars and then, all of a sudden' have 2 stars! It has to be malcontents, etc. who cause this turn. Whatever, yours and others deserve the high praise...don't let some numb-nut get you down. They tend to come & go anyway. Web surfers, you know.

Now, I will get off the soapbox and use some of the soap!

Thanks Woodie, Like most people I have delt with jerks before.
I consider the source and move forward without them.
I was just wondering about the various symbols and their meanings.

I never could figure out why a thread needed to be rated anyway. I kind of like the ability to 'like' a post, since that is a quick way to tell someone that you appreciate his post without cluttering up a thread by saying 'I like it'.
Now to figure out how to rate a thread. :bg:

Now I know... 'you are not authorized to rate this topic' :Crazy:

Hey Ken, I feel the same way about model contests judged by the public. People tend to vote for their friends models instead of the best models.

Making a little progress on my new bridge. The bridge deck will be solid with ballasted track.

Larry, you're getting the Black Hills look just right!  Now you just need a few hundred ponderosa pine trees.

Keep up the good work!
