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!

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