    Those are from any "votes" entered in the "Rate this thread" drop box.

    I just gave this 5 Stars!

    As BC's comment points out, the value of the star rating can be heavily influenced by a single vote if no one else votes.

    As a test, I found an existing thread with 23 replies and 800+ views that had no stars. After I voted by giving it 5 stars, the thread rating now shows 5 stars. Clearly, if only one person votes, the rating is a reflection of just that one person's view. I have not figured out if there is a way to see how many members voted in a given thread star rating.


    P.S. the 'Rate This Thread' dropdown is immediately above the 'Join Date' shown on very first post on each thread page.

    Just for fun I voted one star, just to see how it works. It took one star away.

    Hmmm. I just voted one star and I see it's now down to a three star thread.
